Round Ireland with a Fridge, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


I hereby bet Tony Hawks the sum of One Hundred Pounds that he cannot hitchhike round the circumference of Ireland, with a fridge, within one calendar month'.

A foolhardy attempt to win a drunken bet led to Tony Hawks having one of the most unforgettable experiences of his life.

Joined by his trusty travelling-companion-cum-domestic-appliance, he found himself in the midst of a remarkable, inspirational and, at times, downright silly adventure.

In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge surfed together; entered a batchelor festival; and one of them had sex without the other knowing.

The fridge got christened, and they even met the poorest king on Earth.

An absurd story of an extraordinary adventure, Round Ireland with a Fridge follows the fearless pair as they battle towards Dublin and a breathtaking finale that is moving, uplifting, and a fitting conclusion to the whole ridiculous affair.

one of those laugh out loud books everyone must read

Review by

This was an absolutely hilarious look at what it is like to hitch hike around Ireland with a fridge in tow. Quirky, yet profound, most of life's lessons can be learned from the tale of Tony's journey and his interactions with the many interesting (and sometimes odd) people he meets along the way. Reading this book lifted my spirits and left me with a distinct desire to visit Ireland. Definitely worth reading!

The first book I'd ever read by Tony Hawks just made me want to read the rest of them. Hilariously funny, wonderfully odd and curiously informative as a travel guide for Ireland. Heartily recommended.
