THE Hunt Museum’s summer exhibition “A Wild Atlantic Way” gives visitors the chance to travel the Wild Atlantic Way from Donegal to Kinsale and experience the essence and soul of Ireland through a series of atmospheric and strikingly evocative paintings by 30 artists.

Featuring works created between 1800s and 2019 by Irish-born artists, or artists drawn to Ireland by the beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way, this major exhibition accentuates traditional habits and ways of life - remembering people and history through painting.

The inspiration for the exhibition first came to Naomi O’Nolan, Head of Exhibitions at The Hunt Museum, when she spent time on the West Coast of Ireland during the first lockdown of 2020.

The exhibition will run from this Friday, July 9, to October 3 with booking essential.
