From the author of the award-winning bestseller An Irish Atlantic Rainforest comes The Magic of An Irish Rainforest: A Visual Journey.

In 2023, environmentalist and rewilder Eoghan Daltun travelled the length and breadth of Ireland photographing areas of temperate rainforest, in a bid to illustrate their beauty and immense ecological value, and to document, in almost all cases, their state of decline.

The resulting collection of stunning images, combined with deeply illuminating nature writing, charts that exploration, beginning with the author’s own thriving wild rainforest on the Beara Peninsula, West Cork, and taking us through the four provinces of Ireland – places such as Killarney National Park, Kerry; The Gearagh, Cork, The Burren, Clare; Old Head Wood, County Mayo; Glenveagh National Park, Donegal; Correl Glen and Cladagh Glen, County Fermanagh; and Wicklow’s beauty spot of Glendalough.

From close-range to wide-lens, luscious forest imagery and landscapes are captured, unimaginably rich in native flora and fauna, offering us a deep insight into rare and priceless ecosystem fragments that we still have but are losing fast, alongside a compelling treatise for how that could so easily be changed for the better.
