Summary:  Walking guidebook detailing eighteen quality low-level routes of various grades in and around the County Kerry town of Killarney in southwest Ireland.

On the back cover: Nowhere in Ireland is there such a rich diversity of walks as Killarney. Thousands visit every year to walk in the beautiful landscape for which Killarney is renowned, and until now there has been no guidebook for these walks. Jim Ryan has compiled eighteen of Killarney's most interesting low-level walks, providing excellent photographs, precise directions and the length, time and level of difficulty of each. Each walk has a map indicating the important features. Walks vary in duration from an hour to a day, from flat walking to more challenging rambles. Jim takes readers through the town of Killarney, out to Muckross and Torc, down to Ross Island, and on peaceful strolls in the countryside. One walk includes a boat trip through Killarney's lakes. Woven into the route descriptions are historical notes, anecdotes, folklore and natural history to add to the walker's enjoyment. This is a book to be used and reused, for the visitor to Killarney, having savoured its beauty, invariably returns.
