Media reviews

'A magical natural history tour, his lyrical style truly lights the way.' - The Guardian. 'Has history, birds, animals, flowers, mountains, and where to stay - not only along Connemara's "electroencephalographically ragged coastline". A holiday in itself.' - Ann Barr, Harpers & Queen.
