In 2011 the same author wrote ‘The Dingle, Iveragh & Beara Peninsula, a walking guide’. That book described 9 of the 24 walks that also feature in this new volume. It is inevitable that popular routes, both in Ireland and elsewhere, are featured in multiple guidebooks. In fairness the new book includes plenty of routes that are not described in previous walking guides. The Dingle Peninsula is hard to beat as a walking destination and it is certainly worthy of a separate guidebook. This is a fine guidebook. Many walkers come to West Kerry simply to climb Mount Brandon. Brandon is a wonderful mountain. The locals will tell you it is Ireland’s second highest mountain. But there is much more to Dingle than Brandon. Part of the area’s charm is how undiscovered many of the walks seem to be. The book describes 24 walks ranging from easy rambles to challenging mountain climbs. Most of the walks take between 3 and 5 hours, ideal for the average hill walker. The book includes three very different routes up Brandon, ranging from 4 up to 8 hours duration. But Dingle is not just about big mountains. He includes a wonderful route around the Great Blasket Island, low level walks around Dunquin and the magnificent Maharees beach walk. The bigger mountains featured in the book include Beenoskee, Masatiompan and Baurtregaum. They are all wonderful climbs especially in good weather when the fine views can be fully appreciated. The book is a slim but durable paperback that will easily fit into a backpack. It includes many fine photographs. It also features outline maps that will suffice for those doing the lower level walks. Ordnance Survey maps will be needed for bigger mountains. Dingles location on the west coast means the weather changes quickly so the usual advice about checking the weather forecast, competent navigation and wearing proper clothing must be taken seriously.
