Visiting the entire length of Ireland' s wild Atlantic coast, from the sublime scale of seascape and mountain-scape in Donegal through the barren limestone of West Clare to the lush, quasitropical mountains of the south-west, The Atlantic Coast of Ireland records the landscape in beautiful detail and recounts the stories that echo through it.
The beauty of the Atlantic coast is anything but timeless. These environments embody geology, deep history, ecology, politics, climate, agriculture, religion and much more. The diversity of Ireland' s culture and geography combines to produce an acute blend of place and history, found nowhere so intensely as here.
Years in the making, Jonathan Hession' s marvellous photographs are complemented by
John Grenham' s wise and witty text, introducing each region and examining the themes that arise from their landscape and history. A perfect companion for travellers on the newly inaugurated Wild Atlantic Way, this is a definitive account, and a book to treasure.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The cover image of Jonathan Hession's The Atlantic Coast of Ireland is striking and brave. It's not so much because of the sheer rock face off the coast of Clare in the foreground, but for the background of grey skies and clouds. There are lots more of these in the pages that follow. This is what the Atlantic Coast really looks like, and is no less beautiful for that. The weather is very much part of the landscape, with long shadows cast by heavy clouds, shafts of sunlight breaking through, and roacks glistening after a downpour all featuring in Hession's photography."
