The very best walks in Ireland, from the Nephin Beg Mountains in Mayo to Dingle Way in Kerry

Walking has never been a more popular pastime and nowhere is more beautiful for walkers to explore than Ireland.

Whether it's exploring the Burren in its floral glory or seeing the Walls of Derry, or even sitting at home in your armchair planning your travels, this book will prove popular with walkers, vacationers, and anyone who loves the Irish landscape.
