A place where magic thrives—in the land, in hearts, in history and heritage— Ireland stays with its visitors for a lifetime. 365 Days in Ireland is a magnificent tribute to the Emerald Isle, with hundreds of full-color photographs and lyrical text by novelist Colum McCann. Fishing boats in Dingle Harbor. The pastoral beauty of sheep-dotted meadows and whitewashed cottages. The rugged, rocky west coast of Inishmore. Medieval castles falling into ruin and ancient dolmens, mysterious relics of prehistory. Plus black-faced sheep, the cascading river Inagh, Ha'penny Bridge, and cozy pubs that serve up yeasty, dark pints and hearty Irish stew. This is Ireland, beautiful, spirited, and unforgettable.
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.
