East of Ireland Walks: On River and Canal, Lenny Antonelli - River and canal walks can have special appeal, the scenery always changing due to flowing water, weirs, locks and the changing countryside. Ireland's rivers and canals are rich in wildlife, history and folklore, and many can be explored on mostly flat, little-used trails. These hidden corridors of wildness through rural and urban Ireland reveal remnants of a time when trade, transport and industry in Ireland revolved around water rather than roads. Lenny Antonelli introduces some of the best river and canal trails in the east and east midlands, from short strolls to a five-day trek along the Barrow. These walks encompass iconic Irish rivers such as the Liffey, the Boyne and the Nore; and waterways such as the Grand and Royal Canals. There are lesser-known trails here too, from ravines in the Slieve Bloom Mountains to the young rivers of Wicklow's deep wooded valleys. For those new to walking, these trails form easy introductions. For experienced walkers, they provide new and less-trodden paths through places of unexpected beauty. Published April 15.

Dublin and Wicklow: A Walking Guide, Helen Fairbrain - This guidebook describes the best walking routes in Dublin and Wicklow. From mountain landscape to scenic coastal paths, from woodland trails to challenging hill-walks, there are routes here for everyone. Trips vary from two-hour strolls to eight-hour treks, and are illustrated with sketch maps and colour photographs. This is an area of great scenic variety with countless hidden gems to discover - sheer cliffs, dramatic corries, secluded lakes and charming forests. As well as inspiring you to visit the region's natural attractions, the guide provides a host of practical and background information. Each route is prefaced with a quick-reference summary, and descriptions include detailed access notes and navigational guidance. Points of interest are all highlighted, including local flora, fauna, geology, history and folklore. Walking in Dublin and Wicklow is nothing new - it has long been one of Ireland's most popular outdoor playgrounds. Some routes are established classics, and most lie within an hour of Dublin city. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bag, pull on your boots and go - this guide will show you the way! Published March 14.  Literary Walking Tours of Gothic Dublin, Brian Showers and Duane Spurlock - Dublin has spawned three important writers in the nineteenth century gothic tradition: Charles Maturin (1782-1824), Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873) and Bram Stoker (1847-1912). These writers contributed memorable and influential stories that were inspired by and often set in their native Dublin. Their fictions, which delve into universal and supernatural themes such as ghosts, vampires and the devil, persist in popularity to this day. The footprints of these writers and inspirations for their stories can be traced through Dublin's dark alleys, distilled from its public houses and unearthed in its churchyards. These writers, whose lives crossed paths with other notable nineteenth century personalities, were often intertwined with the history of the city itself. This guidebook reconstructs the lives of Maturin, Le Fanu and Stoker as walking tours with the help of maps, photographs and excerpts from their works. Also reprinted inside are Maturinís 'Leixlip Castle', Le Fanu's 'Ghost Stories of Chapelizod' and Stoker's 'The Judge's House'; each story illustrated by Duane Spurlock. Cover art is by Meggan Kehrli and a foreword by Pat Liddy. Ideal for tourists who have come to explore Ireland's 1200 year old capital, native Dubliners who want to learn more about their city's spectral past, and those who just want a mind's eye tour of haunted Dublin. After all, who can resist a good ghost story?  Published October 06.
