Product description

Amazon Review

Walking is probably the fastest mode of transport in some parts of Ireland and certainly the best way to experience the wide variety of scenery. Whether you are interested in a long distance multi-day hike or just a day trip from the car, this well-researched guide will help you enjoy some of the best. It includes route descriptions over all regions of the Republic and Northern Ireland, and covers most types of terrain, from mountains, peat bogs and Europe's highest sea cliffs to deserted beaches (for bathing sore feet) and remote islands inhabited mainly by seabirds.

Each walk is charted on a 1:100,000 map with 50m contour interval, which may be adequate for some walkers without additional maps. While stopping for breath you can read about the geological processes that have created your spectacular view, as well as about local archaeology, social history, flora and fauna. At the end of the day, advice on (limited) public transport and cheap accommodation will help walkers get to the pub faster. For those in need of companionship, there is even information on participating in frequent walking festivals. On the downside, some stretches are on roads, many walks are not circular and the book does not suggest sheltered sightseeing alternatives to cover the likely event of bad weather. Yet, overall, Walking in Ireland is highly recommended. --Rob Hadden


This guide covers the best long-distance walks and day hikes in Ireland, with detailed and reliable two-colour maps for every walk. It gives all the practical tips a walker needs, and includes information such as where to get the best Guinness and great food, and Ireland's flora and fauna.
