Completely revised second edition.
A wealth of new photos.
270 more islands described.
Over 570 Irish Islands – a wealth of information on the wildlife, stories and history of the islands. For those wishing to visit in small boats or kayaks there are details of: Landings, Camping, Drinking water and Tidal information.
Oileáin is a detailed guide to almost every Irish offshore island. The guide is comprehensive, describing over 570 islands, big and small, far out to sea and close in by the shore, inhabited and uninhabited. Oileáin tells it as it is, rock by rock, good and bad, pleasant and otherwise. It concentrates on landings and access generally, then adds information on camping, drinking water, tides, history, climbing, birds, whales, dolphins, legends or anything else of interest.
Oileáin will, I hope, appeal to all who go to sea in small boats.
