About this book

The Burren and the Aran Islands, with their unique combination of flora, fauna and landscape, are explored by large numbers of walkers annually. This revised guide to the best walking routes in the region has clear descriptions and additional information to enhance enjoyment and appreciation of the place. From the rugged interior to spectacular coastal scenery, from challenging upland walks to shorter road and waterside excursions, The Burren and the Aran Islands: A Walking Guide has something for everyone. Walks vary from two-hour strolls to the longer Burren Way, a six-hour walk from Lisdoonvarna to Ballyvaughan. The author's considerable experience and detailed knowledge of the area ensures the best of this region is featured. Each route description consists of a quick-reference summary, a clear sketch map, and detailed access information while points of interest are highlighted – geology, flora and fauna, history, archaeology and folklore.
