Lady Georgiana Chatterton (1806 1876) was a prolific British
romantic novelist and travel writer. After marrying Sir William
Chatterton in 1824 she spent much of her time at his estate in
Ireland; the couple later retired to Dorset because of financial
problems after the Irish Famine (1845 1851). These volumes, first
published in 1839, contain Chatterton's accounts of various walks
and excursions she undertook in the south of Ireland. Writing in
the format of journal entries, Chatterton recounts her outings to
places including Killarney, the Dingle Mountains and Limerick,
mixing vivid descriptions of scenery and villages with details of
local legends. These volumes were extremely popular and remain the
best known of Chatterton's works; they provide a valuable example
of popular early Victorian travel writing. For more information on
