The Coastal Atlas of Ireland


This Atlas is a rare and extraordinary fusion of land and seascapes, scientific inquiry and artistic talent, a view of the Irish coastline as you have never seen it before. It filled this exile with gratitude-for the coast itself and for the makers of this exemplary work. –Fergal Keane, BBC

The Coastal Atlas of Ireland

The Coastal Atlas of Ireland is a celebration of Ireland’s coastal and marine spaces. Drawing on written contributions from over 100 authors from across the island of Ireland and beyond, the Atlas takes an explicitly all-island approach; though the work has a much wider relevance and potential reader interest.

It is organised into six sections, comprising a total of 33 chapters. They take the reader from the distant geological past, by way of the prehistoric era and a focus on the island’s physical environments, through time and the human colonisation of Ireland, to the complex cultural and economic landscapes of the near past and the present day.

This is a truly impressive and monumental effort. This beautiful book makes the perfect gift for all interested in our seas and coasts.
