Book summary

Brendan Lehane reveals in his witty and informative book that wild places still exist in rich abundance in Ireland. You can climb a mountain, bathe in a sea, watch thousands of birds co-existing on off-shore stacks, fish for salmon with a good chance of catching one, and hear the dusk calls of the corncrake at a river's reedy mouth all in a day.

Wild Ireland offers something different from general guidebooks. It takes you far beyond Dublin and the other popular tourist destinations such as Cork, Galway, and County Kerry, spiriting you away to the remotest sea-cliffs, secret valleys and mountain lakes, in Northern Ireland as well as the Republic. If you want to be an armchair traveller, Wild Ireland will entertain and entrance you for hours with word pictures and color photographs. If you like the sound of a place, look in the accompanying fact-pack and you will find everything you need to plan a journey, arrange a fishing vacation, book accommodation or work out the stages for a long-distance walk. Specially drawn maps will enable you to find all the author's favorite spots. [via]
