A new book by sea kayaker David Walsh aims to give people advice on how to travel to the many islands off the coast of Ireland.
Walsh has been to 503 of the 574 islands featured in his revised book, entitled “Oileáin – a guide to Ireland’s Islands.”
Some of the most challenging islands to land on are Fastnet Rock or the Bull Rock, which is located a mile out from Dursey Island off the Cork coast, he says.
“The most challenging ones are the ones where the tides make it difficult. You have to go with the tide and they’re so strong in the south-east,” he told TheJournal.ie.
