Irish Peaks is Mountaineering Ireland’s new guide to hillwalking on Ireland’s highest mountains.
Irish Peaks is a large-format book, celebrating Ireland’s highest mountains through an inspiring collection of 71 hillwalking routes, covering all of Ireland’s main mountain areas. The route descriptions, which are illustrated by photographs, were contributed by Mountaineering Ireland members, many from local clubs. Each route is accompanied by a map, the vast majority of these are based on mapping kindly provided by Ordnance Survey Ireland. The book includes a substantial introduction to Ireland’s mountain environment, as well as advice on access and safety in the mountains.
