This book contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels; waterproof paper throughout; the Way in sections, with summaries of distance, terrain and where to find food and drink; concise background on history, geology and wildlife; a special feature on the monastic city of Glendalough; planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane; in full colour, with 70 photographs.

Holiday Walks in IrelandHoliday Walks in Ireland: Connacht Walking Ireland. Explore beautiful Connacht with this new Holiday Walks guide. The 25 walks are spread evenly across the province's five counties (Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Leitrim and Sligo) and are a great introduction to the wild places of the west of Ireland. The scenery of the west is incredibly diverse - there are mountains to climb and coastal trails to follow - you can even go beyond the mainland and explore Omey Island and its wealth of archaeological remains. Paddy Dillon, whose list of 10 Irish publications has gained him the reputation 'Mr-Walking-in-Ireland', incorporates all the well-known waymarked routes in his guidebook (including the Western way, the Bangor Trail, and 'The Miner's Way). However, he also takes you to out-of-the way places you won't come across in other local guides. In addition to Paddy's clear route plans and stunning photographs, there's plenty of background information about the area - from celtic myths and archaeology to the geography and climate of the region. All in all an excellent starting point for a magical holiday in Ireland. This is the first in a series of four 'Holiday Walks in Ireland' guidebooks by Paddy Dillon, covering all four provinces. Look out for guides to Munster, Leinster and Ulster which together will provide a comprehensive guide to all the counties in Ireland.

Walking DublinWalking Dublin: Twenty-four Original Walks in and Around Dublin (Globetrotter Walking Guides) Walking Ireland. Walking Dublin is an exploration, in 24 diverse walks, of Ireland's unique capital and its surrounds. The popular areas of Grafton Street, Temple Bar, Trinity College and the Halfpenny Bridge are all included, but the walks cover much more than the city's justifiably famous areas. Dublin's history is brought to light, from the Stone Age to Georgian times and beyond. A walk is devoted to famous Dubliners, and the Ulysses Walk treads in the footsteps of the hero of James Joyce's legendary novel. The city's beautiful parks and waterways are also taken in, as is the incredible coast around Dalkey, Howth and Portmarnock. With easy-to-follow route maps highlighting museums and other places of interest, and a wealth of vital tourist information, Walking Dublin is the essential companion for all who wish to become acquainted with this wonderful city.
