This book is definitely a keeper, a book Iíll hang on to knowing Iíll return to it again and again. I donít know who the genius is who came up with the concept of the Wild Atlantic Way (WAW) but they are a national treasure. You might regard the WAW as a marketing gimmick but so what life. The concept, basically a load of road signs, has brought huge business into some of the remotest communities in the country along the 2,500 km western seaboard from Cork to Donegal. This is a very fine guidebook. There is a huge amount of information packed into the books 224 pages. Clearly a vast amount of research went into the book. Most importantly the book is very readable. It is divided into chapters following the WAW from Kinsale up to Lough Foyle. There is lots of detail in the book about things to do - beaches, kayaking, looped walks, cycle routes, camping, horse riding etc. The book is very much aimed at the more active holiday maker. If you are looking for luxury hotels and fine dining then this might not be the book for you. The WAW isnít Route 66 and itís not about rushing from one end to the other. The book sensibly advises concentrating on one area and lingering there awhile. The book doesnít list everything you might see or do on the WAW, clearly that would take many volumes, but itís hard to fault the selection in the book. Itís not an accommodation guide though it mentions a lot of campsites and hostels. The book is beautifully produced with a large number of fine photographs and useful outline maps. Well worth a look.
