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. Published March 12.
