West of Ireland Walks Guidebook

West of Ireland Walks Guidebook

by: Kevin Corcoran
The west of Ireland offers a huge choice of landscape to the walker - mountain peaks, woodland, bogs and lakes, sandy beaches and the strange limestone plateaux of the Burren. This guide explores the counties of Clare, Galway and Mayo with 14 walks which are categorised for difficulty so that there is something for casual strollers, family groups, ramblers and serious hill walkers. Kevin Corcoran has an intimate knowledge and love of the Irish landscape. As an environmental biologist, he has studied the area both professionally and as a rambler. This stylishly written guide will therefore ensure you get the most out of exploring these walks.

Each walk chapter begins with a location section that includes information on getting to the start. Other headings are terrain, features, length, time, equipment and when to walk, so you can quickly determine if a particular walk is suitable. This is followed by a detailed walk outline with numbered paragraphs which correspond to points on an accompanying sketch map to assist with navigation. Lots of comments on flora and fauna will ensure you don't miss anything interesting as you walk.
