Summary:  Walking guidebook detailing fifty-four quality routes of various grades along Ireland's coastline. PLEASE NOTE: access information for some of the walks described in this book may now be out-of-date.

On the back cover:  This guide covers 54 coastal walks around Ireland, taking in broad beaches, towering cliffs and battered headlands, including 19 walks on islands. Most of the walks are quite easy, but some are akin to mountain walks, climbing over some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe. There is a huge amount of variety, stunning scenery, plenty of history and heritage, with a good system of transport, accommodation and other services. In sunshine or storm, many of these coastal walks exhibit a raw rare beauty. The routes include: Bray Head, the Cliffs of Moher, the Giant's Causeway, and a spread of fascinating islands, including the Aran Islands, Clare Island, Achill Island, Tory Island and Rathlin.
