Do you ever truly know the beauty of your own country? A 21-year-old Irish man went on an exploration of the Wild Atlantic Way to acquaint himself with the Ireland that tourists see and the incredible resulting video shows exactly why we have so many visitors each year.
Sam McAllister is a Dublin-based creative, photographer and videographer, who believed he underappreciated just how magnificent a country Ireland is.

“I recently embarked on a four-day road trip to capture the spirit of the Wild Atlantic Way, starting in Donegal and finishing in Kerry,” McAllister said.
“I've lived in Ireland my entire life, and have spent a large portion of it thinking that beautiful, elusive scenery always involved a flight elsewhere. It's funny how you view where you live with such disdain until you get the opportunity to go out there and explore it!"
The traveler and photographer already has a massive following on social media and it's easy to see why as his shots of Ireland are ridiculously beautiful.

🌬Tearaght Island, one of the most westerly & inaccessible points in Europe. This morning's sunrise was beautiful, with a (relative) calm before Storm Georgina hit the west coast ⛈. - With an increase in tourism set to hit @thewildatlanticway as a result of the new Star Wars films, I feel incredibly lucky to have seen these places with nobody else around 🙈. - 📸 Gear: @canonuk 5D Mark IV - @tourismireland
• @beautifuldestinations #BDTeam • The Stiletto in the Ghetto: When I'm at home or travelling I often find myself shying away from capturing the 'visited places'. The major tourist hot-spots. I think it's important to remember that no one has seen these places with *your* eyes. Never let anyone discourage you from discovering the previously discovered. 🌎
