Cicerone The Mountains of Ireland
A comprehensive guide, now the classic guide, to Ireland's 200 summits of 2000ft or more and to the 12 peaks exceeding 3000ft. The mountains are described clockwise from Wicklow to the Mournes, and offer a choice of 70 walking routes.
The guide divides the peaks into 5 groups, and at the start of each is described 'Paddy's Way' - the way the author tackled them - so that anyone who wants to emulate him has full directions.
The guide includes summiting Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s highest mountain as part of the Coomloughra horseshoe, the twelve Bens of Connemara, the Maum Turks, the Blue Stack mountains and the mountains of Donegal.
Dublin, Cork, Killarney, Limerick, Westport, Sligo, Derry and Dundalk.
Some routes more challenging than others. Some scrambling, also boggy ground, thick tussocks of grass and dense covering of heather.
- Must See
Summiting Carrauntoohil, and all the other mountains. Recovering in the warm and dry after a wet and windy expedition.
