These three peninsulas dominate the spectacular landscape of southwest Ireland. Their rugged peaks, dramatic ridges, captivating valleys, glittering lakes and stunning Atlantic coastline form a treasure chest of walking options.

This guide describes exhilarating walks in each peninsula, accompanied by the author's photographs and specially drawn maps. The walks have generally not featured in previous guidebooks and provide a range of options, both for those familiar with the region and for first-time visitors. This region attracts thousands of walkers annually and, since most routes are not signposted or way-marked, an up-to-date guidebook is essential. The walk descriptions also include material on the fauna, flora, folklore, history, geology and place-names of the area. It will be the most comprehensive guide to the area to be published for some time.
