Two Months as Kilkee Book Cover
Two Months at Kilkee
by Mary John Knott

CLASP Press, 1997, Hardback, ISBN: 1 900545 02 0,
Price: €15.00 (Fascimile Reprint)

This is a fascinating early account of an emerging holiday resort and its environs first published in 1836, allowing the reader to journey back in time to a Gaelic-speaking West of Ireland still unravaged by the Great Famine, where the simple, but hard life of the common people is presented with sympathy and insight. This book is in effect a travel companion to West Clare, including descriptions of Loop Head, Miltown Malbay, Lahinch, Cliffs of Moher, the Shannon River and Limerick.
