Kerry Wild Atlantic Way locations to undergo major improvement works

Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin TD, visited a number of locations along the Wild Atlantic Way route in Kerry that will undergo major improvement works as part of Fáilte Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way Congestion and Visitor Management Project. The 50km stretch of the route is set to undergo infrastructural improvements at six key locations from Milltown Bridge to Clogher Head, taking in Slea Head Drive, Fahan Group Beehive Huts, Coumeenoole Beach and Ceann Sleibhe. The proposed works will improve public safety measures and alleviate traffic congestion and will include upgraded car parking and visitor facilities and additional signage.
