The Way-Marked Trails of Ireland

The standard guide to the author’s favourite way-marked trails, with an informed but informal narrative laced with descriptions of landscapes and localities, wildlife and history. Advice on where to get refreshments, evening meals and accommodation is included.


The first comprehensive guide, full of topographical and natural history, to over one thousand kilometres of Ireland’s way-marked trails, arranged, as the author says in his introduction, to suit ‘softies’ like himself, who enjoy the comfort of a bath or shower, a good meal and a comfortable bed at the end of the day.


By Cliff and Shore: Walking the Waterford Coast

The Wicklow Way: from Marlay to Glenmalure

Michael Fewer’s first book is a walking guide intended for ordinary walkers and families who wished to enjoy to the full the flora, fauna and historical associations of the Wicklow Way, Ireland’s first Waymarked walking route. He includes alternative routes and circuits that allow walkers to complete loops rather than having to retrace their steps, similar to Failte Ireland’s Loop Walks of today.
