This guide divides the Emerald Isle into eight regions which in turn are subdivided into over 100 touring areas. Hundreds of color photos, over 130 maps, and well-chosen words showcase Ireland's scenic and cultural riches. The maps use English place names, and the text provides common Irish words and phrases. Indexing is by English names. Feature articles are scattered throughout the guide. The glossary of terms (mostly dealing with architecture) and a chronology of area history (ending in 1923) are of limited value. Practical information includes phone numbers of tourist offices, some attractions in each touring area, and a directory of outdoor activities contacts. Recommended for most travel collections.
