About this project

Award winning development of Discovery Point at Derrigimlagh, Wild Atlantic Way’s inaugural key ‘Signature Discovery Points’ in association with Fáilte Ireland and Galway County Council, to develop a visitor experience at the site which was the setting for two outstanding technological achievements of the 20th century: the Marconi Wireless Station, the world’s first commercial transatlantic wireless station in 1907; and twelve years later (in 1919) when Alcock and Brown landed on the site marking the first nonstop, Trans-Atlantic flight.

The works provide visitors with car parking facilities and a looped boardwalk and stone paths through a bog landscape of outstanding natural beauty where they can discover the stories of this famous site. The walk is augmented by a number of attractive features which are designed to engage visitors and encourage them to interact with the history of the location.
