A guide to some of the best walking routes in the region.

The Burren and the Aran Islands, with their unique combination of flora, fauna and landscape, are explored by large numbers of walkers annually.

This is a revised guide to some of the best walking routes in the region, with lucid descriptions and additional information to enhance the walkers' 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 selection has something for everyone. Every part of the region is covered.

Walks vary from two-hour strolls to the longer Burren Way, a six-hour walk from Lisdoonvarna to Ballyvaughan. The author has put his considerable experience and detailed knowledge of the area to great use in putting together an easy-to-use guide that introduces the best of this region for locals and visitors alike.

Each route, prefaced with a quick-reference summary, is illustrated with a clear sketch map; descriptions include detailed access information while points of interest are highlighted – geology, flora and fauna, history, archaeology and folklore.
