From the doorstep of Dublin city, there is easy access to a cycling haven of deep glens, forested mountains and wild scenery, including the Wicklow Mountains. This guidebook journeys through some of the country’s best-known tourist attractions, such as Glendalough, and reveals lesser-known points of interest like the Shay Elliott memorial to the first Irish rider to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. The graded routes suit all abilities, and are illustrated with colour maps, photos and gradient graphs, with information on the many natural landmarks and historical sites en route. The historic Military Road is central to many of the cycles. Constructed in the aftermath of the 1798 Rebellion, it runs from Rathfarnham in south Dublin to Aughavannagh in south-west Wicklow, with a side arm from Enniskerry to Glencree, and from the Sally Gap to Roundwood. Try your hand as a Tour de France competitor, revisiting the 1998 stage, which raced through the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, finishing in the Phoenix Park. Surprising insights and useful tips are shared throughout, allowing cyclists to enjoy the wonders and challenges of south Dublin and Wicklow.

This book serves two practical purposes. The first is to encourage you to cycle - a good thing in itself. The second is to introduce you to the marvellous varieties of terrain and cycling routes that can be easily accessed from Dublin. To add spice to the mixture, Hugh Halpin includes snippets of history and folklore in his descriptions and points out fascinating sights worth seeing along the way. The author has chosen forty routes which vary in terms of length and difficulty. The shortest route, at 20 km, would take less than an hour for a fit cyclist and would make an ideal family half-day, taken at leisure. The longest route, at 95 km, is a challenging day's cycling for a fully fit cyclist. Most of the routes are suitable for families and the averagely fit. All are circular, so that you can, if need be, drive to the start and return to your car. Terrain is varied, with the Wicklow mountains to the south and - at the northern extremity - the Cooley Peninsula, offering upland routes. These contrast nicely with the flatlands of Kildare and the low hills of Louth, Meath and Fingal. This is the ideal guide for leisure cyclists in the greater Dublin region.

Covering all aspects of travel since the 12th century, this guide provides a reference on Irish travel literature. The book also examines the tradition and content of tourist guides to Ireland. The information included ranges from diary-accounts of journeys undertaken through the country and towns of Ireland, written for the information of others, to private writings, such as the 17th-century account by Mary Granville of her journey to Galway. There are also excerpts from the journals and letters of historical figures, such as John Wesley and Mary Wollstonecraft. Furthermore, the author has added to the bibliographical data for each entry wherever possible, indicating the itinerary followed by the writer in question.
