The Ryan Tubridy Show has teamed up again with Fáilte Ireland as part of its Embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of Life summer marketing campaign, and will be broadcasting from the coastal driving route for a week straight at the end of May.
Ryan will be broadcasting live with RTE Radio 1 as his show tours the Wild Atlantic Way from Monday 29th May until Friday 2nd of June. The tour will be known as Tubs on the Wild Atlantic Way, and will broadcast from a number of tourism businesses along the route. This is the fourth year running that Fáilte Ireland and the Tubridy Show have teamed up for the initiative.
This year the tour will focus on a selection of islands and seaside towns, kicking off in Arranmore Island (Árainn Mhór) in Co. Donegal, continuing to Achill Island, then to Ballybunnion in Co. Kerry, Baltimore in West Cork, before finally finishing in The Moorings in Portmagee, Co. Kerry.
Ryan will be interviewing local tourism businesses from the surrounding areas and discussing some of the activities and experiences available to anyone touring the Wild Atlantic Way, as well as trying some himself – including deep sea angling and night kayaking.
Fiona Monaghan, Head of Wild Atlantic Way, Fáilte Ireland, said: “This is the fourth consecutive year the show has chosen to experience the Wild Atlantic Way and we are delighted to be supporting it.
“Spectators coming down to watch the broadcast – whether in Arranmore, Achill Island, Ballybunnion, Baltimore or Portmagee – can expect to see plenty of festivities, interviews, live music as well as hear about local tourism highlights.”
