Round Ireland With A Fridge

TV comedian Tony Hawks tries to win a bet by hitch-hiking around the circumference of Ireland in one calendar month. With a fridge.

'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.

Praise for Round Ireland With A Fridge

Round Ireland with a Fridge is an entirely silly, heart-warming tale told in a rollicking funny and refreshing style

Melissa Rossi

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish - Tony Hawks is just as funny at the written word as he is on the box

Doncaster Courier

Full of wit, dry self-observation and wonder at the human spirit, Hawks guides us through his inspirational journey with a deft touch. Rarely does a book make me laugh out loud

Latest Homes

Hawks's account shows the Irish at their whimsical best

Daily Telegraph

Not just brilliantly written, but far too hilarious to read alone in a public place

Sunday Independent, Ireland

Part autobiography, part travelogue, part insane Guinness-addled ramblings

Irish Times

Very light-hearted, he captures the generosity, warmth and humour of Ireland
