These stunning images show off how gorgeous our country really is.

Updated February 2016

THE AWESOME POWER of Ireland’s western coastline is no more visible than in these stunning photographs from Carsten Krieger’s book Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

Krieger took a photographic journey from Donegal to Cork, taking in not just the views, but meeting local people along the way.

From birdwatching to dolphins, piers to castles, the sea to mountains, the book captures many different sides to Ireland’s west.
