Originally published in French in Brunswick as Promenade d'un Français dans l'Irlande, A Frenchman's Walk Through Ireland is an important source for researchers, interested in Irish society at the close of the eighteenth century.

This fascinating travelogue, which took place during 1796-7 is packed full of witty and keen observations on all levels of Irish Society on the eve of the 1798 Rebellion. At ease when receiving hospitality from the elite of Irish society, the author can also be found mixing with the peasantry, taking shelter with a beggar woman and her family and watching the conduct of hedge schools, turf cutting and potato planting. This is a fascinating and very readable social commentary, and is recommended for anyone interested in societal organisation at this crucial period in Irish history.
