The Burren & the Aran Islands - A Walking Guide by Tony Kirby
The Burren and the Aran Islands, with their unique 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 the walker's enjoyment and appreciation of the place. From the rugged interior to spectacular coastal scenery, from challenging upland walks to shorter road and waterside excursions, this guide has something for everyone. Walks vary from two hour strolls to the longer Burren Way, a six-hour wall from Lisdoonvarna to Ballyvaughan. Each route description consists of a quick-reference summary, a clear sketch may, and detailed access information while points of interest are highlighted - geology, history, archaeology and folklore.
