Christine Bleakley returns home to Ireland for a very special trip. She’s planning to drive, climb, walk and swim her way along the longest continuous coastal route in the world, Ireland’s 1500 mile long Wild Atlantic Way. The route stretches from County Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula to Kinsale in County Cork on the Celtic Sea coast.
Starting at Malin Head, the most northerly point of the island – where Christine learns the story of how Ireland first got its name – she then drives, bikes, hikes, swims and kayaks her way along the coastline, all the way to Clonakilty, in the south.
On her travels, Christine visits numerous historical sites, meets a host of fascinating characters, takes on some extreme sports, learns about harvesting and preparing local food delicacies, and uncovers a landscape of natural wonders right on Britain’s doorstep.
“Christine Bleakley’s Wild Ireland is another celeb travelogue. But this one’s worth watching.” – Irish Times
