Ireland is a country of unmatchable landscapes that never fail to give you a satisfying sense of discovery - from the magnificently wooded Killarney lakeland to the stark moonscapes of the Burren, from the sheer cliffs, exposed headlands and sand-fringed coves of the indented west coast to the wild misty hills in Donegal, from the dazzling Giant's Causeway to secluded loughs hidden in turf-laden mountains.Steeped in legend and history, Ireland has cairns, stone circles, standing stones, ring-forts and countless burial sites, all testifying to diverse Neolithic cultures. These exciting archaeological finds will be special attractions on all your excursions. The book features large-scale topo walking maps (1:50,000), fold-out touring maps and timetables for local transport. Unique free on-line update service with specific route change information.
