Exploring Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

" I’d recommend this guide for people planning on travelling all or part of the Wild Atlantic Way, those who want to explore their own county, or anyone who needs reminding just how beautiful our coastline is and how much there is to do here."

"Flanagan’s book will become a classic, with its high-quality photographs and accurate route descriptions… [this] lavishly illustrated and well-designed anthology collects the best climbs of the country into one volume for the first time.“
