Cover Description

Best Irish Walks has been for many years the leading single-volume guide to hill walking in Ireland. It describes over 75 different routes ranging from formidable climbs in the Kerry mountains to delightful treks along the river valleys.

This new edition of 'Best Irish Walks' has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new computer-generated maps. It is the ideal book for all who love the Irish hills, whether Irish people themselves or the ever-growing number of visitors who come to Ireland to walk its wonderfully unspoilt countryside.

Best Irish Walks is the essential guide to walking in Ireland.

The Editor

Joss Lynam is the doyen of Irish mountaineers. He has climbed extensively in the Alps and the Himilaya as well as in Britain and Ireland. He has been general editor for this book and for the series of regional guides on which it is based, since 1979.
