Is it that there’s a bit of the Irish in all of us that makes 365 Days in Ireland our second-bestselling travel calendar? Or is it the allure of the land itself? Sea stacks. Castle ruins. Names that are snippets of poetry—Tullynally, Inishmore, Glendalough. Traipsing through Dublin on Bloomsday. Irreverent Guinness signs and that perfectly poured creamy pint. A kiss for the Blarney Stone, the Galway Races, a thatched cottage set by the sea, and everywhere you look, miles of green.
Capturing the verdant beauty and sense of enchantment that swathe the Emerald Isle, Ireland features hundreds of full-color photographs by Tim Thompson and eloquent text by novelist Colum McCann.
THE ROCK OF CASHEL, FANAD HEAD, A BLOOMSDAY TOUR OF DUBLIN
Every day—every moment spent in Ireland is a seduction. The dramatic sea spray of Cork's Roaring Water Bay. The Slieve League Cliffs. Light reflecting off the River Liffey. Crumbling relics of the past—towers, abbeys, dolmens. A fiddler fiddling in the pub, the Irish Derby, Blarney Castle of myth and story, witty Guinness ads, a swan gliding down the Erne. These are the wonders of the Emerald Isle, imbued with history and memory and a deep sense of place.
Combining the lyrical writing of novelist Colum McCan with hundreds of gorgeous photographs by Tim Thompson, 365 DAYS IN IRELAND captures the essence and heart of the land—the windswept beauty, indomitable spirit, and the thread of magic that wends through it all.
