Nowhere in Ireland has such a diversity of walks as Killarney, walks that kings and queens, writers and international celebrities have come to make in the beautiful landscape Killarney is renowned for.

Heretofore there has been no guidebook for these walks and this new book rectifies this deficiency. Not only has Jim Ryan compiled eighteen of Killarney's most interesting low-level walks, he has provided excellent photographs, precise directions and the length, time and difficulties with each. Each walk has a map indicating important features.

Walks vary in duration from an hour to a day, from flat walking to more challenging rambles. Four of the walks are nature trails that follow markers, with the flora, fauna and landscape at each described. Jim takes readers through the town of Killarney, out to Muckross and Torc, down to Ross Island, and on peaceful strolls in the countryside. One of the walks includes a boat trip through Killarney's lakes.

Woven into the route descriptions are historical notes, anecdotes, folklore and natural history to add to the walker's enjoyment. This is a book to be used and put away, then taken out again, for the visitor to Killarney, having savoured its beauty, invariably returns.
