At just 170 miles wide and 301 miles in length, it came as a bit of a shock when I realised that the coastline of Ireland is 1,970 miles long!
Why so long? Ireland’s continual battle with the relentless pounding of the powerful Atlantic Ocean has resulted in a deeply indented coastline, especially in the south-west.
Although the route that I will be following is much closer to 1,000 miles.
Still, it is a wee bit longer than my 500 mile walk in Spain last year.
So, starting from Dublin, I’ll walk around the coastline of Ireland, in a clockwise direction, before returning to Dublin – a wee bit later.
The Burren, Connemara, Dingle, Donegal, Ring of Kerry, Tipperary and The Wild Atlantic Way. And not forgetting the cities: Belfast, Cork, Derry and, of course, Dublin.
This is going to be some walk!
