The summary table at the start of the book, dividing the route into stages and giving an estimated distance and time for each stage, was invaluable in helping me plan my walk. Other sources give longer distances for one or two of the stages, suggesting that those given in this book might be underestimated - again I'll be able to tell in two months' time.
I wish this book had an overview map showing the whole route. Surprisingly, it doesn't. You have to piece the route together from the detailed stage maps or else get it from other sources. Another omission is information about accommodation - there is none in the book. Fortunately there is plenty of information available online.
This little book is not up to the standards of the latest guidebooks: some come with protective plastic covers (to avoid damage when stuffed in the pocket of your rainjacket) and compact inserts reproducing ordnance survey mapping of the whole route, saving you the bother of taking maps. But all the same this book has been invaluable to my route planning. Sometimes you can get overwhelmed by all the information available online, and having the basics at hand in a little guidebook like this one helps you to make sense of it all.
Update, May 2018. I have walked the Kerry Way from Killarney to Derrynane (close to Caherdaniel) via the Black Valley. As a previous reviewer said, some of the distances given in this guidebook are hopelessly short. The book quotes Glenbeigh to Cahersiveen as 20.5 km and Cahersiveen to Waterville as 24km. The real distance for both stages is around 30km. (An official information board along the Way gives the distances as 29 and 30km respectively.) It is unacceptable for a guidebook to get the distances so badly wrong. Walkers who rely on the guidebook might find themselves walking in the dark.
