There’s Boeing 767, on a barge, heading up the Wild Atlantic Way

It’s not everyday you see a Boeing 767, on a barge, heading up the Wild Atlantic Way. But you can today. A disused Boeing 767 set sail from Shannon to it’s new home in Co. Sligo where an entrepreneurial Mayo man plans to create a new and unique glamping experience.  The plane is currently making it’s journey up the Wild Atlantic Way from Shannon Airport by sea to its new home in Enniscrone.

Quirky Nights Glamping Village will have an alternative transport theme and feature a number of unusual accommodation options including buses, taxis and a train. The Boeing 767 was bought for €20,000 from Shannon Airport and had previously been owned by Transaero a Russian airline.

The usual journey has made for some very bizarre photos making the rounds.
