A new Wild Atlantic Way passport has been launched that will encourage visitors to explore communities in Kerry along the coastal route. The visitor passport, which was developed by Fáilte Ireland and An Post, is a record souvenir of the route taken, similar to the passport system used by pilgrims following the Camino in northern Spain. The passport contains a section for each of the zones along the route and visitors to Discovery Points are invited to call in to the local post office to have their passport stamped. The passport costs €10 and can be purchased at over 130 post offices along the route or at the GPO in Dublin. Foynes post mistress Maeve McNamara helped launch the new passports with Tourism Minister Patrick O’Donovan.
