When Edward Enfield decided to cycle around Ireland, he was enchanted by prehistoric fortresses, rugged landscapes, and landladies who insisted on washing his shirts. He takes you with him on a gentle ride up the west coast, eating fresh fish and enormous breakfasts along the way, and stopping to chat to peat-cutters, fishermen, eccentric tourists, and a famous matchmaker.With his trademark dry wit, observant eye, and a sense of the absurd, Enfield is the perfect companion for a tour of Ireland's most beautiful areas, from the lakes of Killarney to the idyllic Joyce's Country, and from the dolmens of Clare to the deserts and neolithic remains of Mayo.More

A joy to listen...
Yes I would as it gives a great flavour of Ireland mixed with humour & history, plus various characters.
The match maker who fixes up partners...gives you hope that there is someone out there for everyone.
No I haven't but his voice is a joy to listen to.
It never made me cry, but it did tell you just how bad the English were back in the 1700/1800's...how can you be so cruel to fellow human beings?
This is a must for anyone who wants to find out about Ireland and the people. A very good listen, well told & informative, never far from bringing a smile to your face!
