AGU I DE TO

“ There is not in the wide world a valley so sweet
As the vale in whose bosom the bright waters meet;
Oh! the last rays of feeling and life must depart,
Ere the bloom of that valley shall fade from my heart."

T. Moore.

“ It is certainly a great advantage, that which is possessed by
the inhabitants of Dublin of being able, during a three days'
tour, to see so sweet an union of the beautiful and the pic-
turesque as many parts of Wicklow present, and even to form
a conception of the still higher attractions of mountain scenery.
It is true every thing here is en petit, but it is a beautiful
minuteness.”Inglis.

“Immediately after driving through the town of Arklow,
and turning sharply to the westward, the road took us sud-
denly to the commencement of a beautiful valley, of which the
scenery was at once changed and varied as rapidly as one sees
in a pantomime. This was the Vale of Avoca, a spot one has
heard much of, and a lovely one it unquestionably is.”—
Barrow.

A GUIDE BOOK

TO THE

LAKES OF KILLARNEY,

With Maps ;

CONTAINING EVERY PARTICULAR INTERESTING

TO TOURISTS.

This is an elegant and useful Hand-book for those who intend to visit the celebrated Irish Lakes; and it appears very opportunely at the present time when the Continent is in a manner closed against travelling for pleasure. It is certain that the visit of Her Majesty to the sister isle will attract thither a great number of tourists this season, and as few will leave without visiting the neighbourhood of the Lakes of Killarney, they cannot do better than take this small volume with them, for a more entertaining guide they could not procure."-Morning Herald.

“Upon the whole, Killarney, among the lakes that I have seen, can scarcely be said to have a rival: the extent of water in Loch Erne is much greater, the islands more numerous, and some scenes near Castle Caldwell of as great magnificence; the rocks at Keswick are more sublime, and other lakes may have circumstances in which they are superior; but when we consider the prodigious woods of Killarney, the immensity of the mountains, the uncommon beauty of the promontory of Muckross, and the Isle of Innisfallen, the character of the islands, the single circumstance of the arbutus, and the uncommon echoes, it will appear upon the whole to be in reality superior to all comparison.”—Young.
