Irish Coastal Walks

Irish Coastal Walks

by: Paddy Dillon
Ireland is a small country, but its coastline measures around 3,500 miles (5,600km). The western seaboard is incredibly convoluted, breaking into fine headlands and a spread of islands. Whilst many parts of Ireland's coastline are well known, such as the Giant's Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher, few have heard of the Wexford Coastal Path, the Sheep's Head or Inishturk.
This guide covers over fifty coastal walks around Ireland, taking in broad beaches, towering cliffs, battered headlands and a score of lovely islands. There is a huge amount of variety, astounding scenery, plenty of history and heritage, with a good system of transport, accommodation and other services. In sunshine or storm, many of these coastal walks exhibit a raw, rare beauty. Each of the walks has detailed directions, a sketch map and plenty of fascinating commentary from knowledgeable Paddy Dillon. Details of distance, starting point, maps, terrain, parking and public transport are provided.
