Failte Ireland: ‘Tubs’ Stamp of Approval For New Wild Atlantic Way Passport!

Published on : Tuesday, May 31, 2016

WAW-Passport-Tubridy-thumbRyan Tubridy began his week long journey along the Wild Atlantic Way today (30th May 2016) with a visit to the local Post Office in Buncrana where he picked up his first stamp on his ‘Wild Atlantic Way Passport’ – a new visitor passport developed by Fáilte Ireland and An Post to encourage greater visitor exploration along the west coast route.

 
The Wild Atlantic Way Passport provides visitors to the west with a recorded souvenir of their journey along some, or all, of the 188 Discovery Points on the world’s longest coastal touring route. Each Passport contains a section for each of the various zones along the route and visitors to Discovery Points can call in to the local Post office to have their passport stamped with a unique motif for each one.

 

The Wild Atlantic Way Passport may be purchased (for €10.00) at over 130 selected An Post Offices, along the Wild Atlantic Way route as well as at Dublin’s GPO and St Andrew’s Street Post Offices.

 
Speaking about the new initiative, Fiona Monaghan, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of the Wild Atlantic Way, emphasised:

 

“This passport is a wonderful way for visitors to record their experiences along the Wild Atlantic Way. However, by encouraging visitors to visit local towns to get their passport stamped in the Post Office, we also hope the passport will help increase tourist activity and engagement with people and places along the route.

 

“The passport is also neatly placed to encourage a return trip for those that have part-completed their passport – and we will be urging visitors to think about completing their collection of Wild Atlantic Way stamps over a number of years.”
