Have you ever made a drunken bet? Worse, still, have you eveer tried to win one? In attempting to hitchhike round Ireland wich a fridge, Tony Hawks did both, and his foolhardiness led him to one of the best experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty traveling companion-cum-domestic appliance, he made his way from Dublin to Donegal, from Sligo through Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry, Cork, Wexford, Wicklow--and back again to Dublin. In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge met a real prince, a bogus king, and the fridge got christened. They surfed together, entered a bachelor festival, and one of them had sex without the other knowing. And unexpectedly, the fridge itself became a momentary focus for the people of Ireland.

An international bestseller, Round Ireland with a Fridge is a classic travel adventure in the tradition of Bill Bryson with a dash of Dave Barry.

Tony Hawks lives in London and divides his time equally between writing, performing, and playing tennis. He makes regular appearances on British radio and is currently the host of The Best Show in the World.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious This book was everything I had hoped it to be. Who would've thought that such a silly bet could turn into an epic, month-long journey? Tony Hawks won me over, and as if I didn't have the travel itch already, he's made me want to travel the world with a kitchen appliance. I loved being able to picture where Tony was in Ireland and some of the stories were so bizarre that they were hard to believe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ireland An enjoyable journey but once he becomes a pseudo-celebrity it gets too easy for him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funny,funny,funny A very good book with laugh-out-loud moments. I thought the blessing of the fridge and Tony travelling in the horse trailer were the funniest. Since I travelled around Ireland 2 1/2 years ago some of the places were familiar. However I certainly didn't hit the number of pubs he did

Editorial Reviews

"Round Ireland with a Fridge is a sort of alternative Michael Palin tome and a far better read thatn you would expect. It is part autobiography, part travelogue, and part Guinness-addled ramblings." -The Irish Times"One ridiculous and sumbline example of the high-concept travel book is the British comedian Tony Hawk's Round Ireland with a Fridge....The whole book is driven by the sheer lunacy of the original proposition, and the sweet bottom line is that anything that brings people together and shows them this good a time isn't stupid at all." -The New York Times Book Review"A rambling but ultimately warmhearted diary-like account that combines elements of Let's Go Ireland, Cheers, and Seinfeld...Hawks has produced a witty, silly, tribute to the hospitality and generosity that the Emerald Isle is famous for." -The Post and Courier (Charleston, S.C.)
