When Irish eyes are smiling, said a sage, watch your step. To some, Ireland has the charm of a country still living spiritually in the 18th century. To others it has avivid theatricality, combining dreams and desolation, diocy and intellect into an alluring cocktail. And Ireland's history, a bloody litany of love-hate relationships, is as compelling as it is turbulent.
If you think you understand Ireland, they say, your've been misinformed.ButINSIGHT GUIDE;IRELAND aims to prove them wrong. Put together by an expert team of writers and photographers, more than 300 pages guide you through all of Ireland: Irish history, Irish people and Irish life. Above all, this book takes you to Irish places-the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland: from the delights of commopolitian Dublin to the enchantment of Kellarney: from the dangers and charms of Belfast to the wild beauty of the GAelic-speaking west.
Contains full color maps

Although this book was published about 10 years ago, I assume that a lot of the roads stay the same. The book is laid out into various one-day car trips from various places in Ireland. I am going to use two of the one-day trips during my visit and see everything recommended. The pictures are great, it is easy to use, and very compact...definitely a book you can functionally use while traveling. It isn't so big that it is overwhelming, but very specific on things to do and see. Highly recommended.
