Best Walks in Ireland

by: David Marshall
From Antrim's rugged coastline to the lakes of Killarney, from remote Inis Oirr to Wicklow's Vale of Glendalough, this selection of fascinating walks has suggestions for everything from a family outing to a challenging hike. David Marshall's lively commentary provides interest and entertainment along the way.
This new pocket-friendly edition has been thoroughly revised and freshly illustrated with colour photographs taken by the award-winning Irish landscape photographer Rob Beighton. Twenty graded routes are included complete with maps and pictures. Each has directions on how to get to the start of the walk, distance, walking time, ascent, terrain, difficulty and useful telephone numbers. Each of the main walks has options for short walks, strolls and diversions to other places of interest, giving over a hundred possibilities in total. There is a knowledgeable commentary on local history, plants, wildlife, Irish place names and many other topics.
