This beautiful travel guide explores the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland by dividing the island into Dublin proper plus 7 geographical regions. Within each region, it identifies a small number of truly must-see locations, sights and activities, then a larger number of others of interest, and then brief paragraph descriptions of them. Its design and style is trademark DK Eyewitness -- with literally a thousand color images, maps and building cross-sections -- except the pages are now of matte paper instead of glossy.

Note two things: 1) it’s an exploratory guide, most suitable for plotting out a general itinerary in the early stages of vacation planning; and 2) with very few exceptions, it does NOT include listings for lodging, dining or entertainment (which is fine; online sites have excellent, up-to-date information on all of that). As an instrument of inspiration or armchair travel, it’s a lively volume.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0789401886, Paperback)

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more comprehensive, engrossing and just plain fun-to-read guidebook than the Eyewitness Travel Guide: Ireland. Spilling over with all sorts of useful information for the traveler, you'll find three-dimensional drawings, floor plans, detailed neighborhood maps with a street-finder index, and even historical timelines. Broken into several sections (including "Introducing Ireland," "Region by Region," "Traveler's Needs," and "Survival Guide"), the guide paints a complete picture of the country. Readers will especially love the hundreds of color photos of everything from the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare to the Connemara landscape of County Galway to out-of-the-way pubs and street-by-street illustrated city walks (Dublin's Southeast walk takes in famed landmarks such as Trinity College, St. Stephen's Green and the Shelbourne Hotel). You'll also find listings for Aran sweaters, Waterford crystal, and Celtic recordings. --Jill Fergus
