This comprehensive guide covers all the regions of Ireland--from the raw, rocky coastline of County Cork and the vibrant city of Belfast to the wild mountain scenery of Connacht and the windswept Arran islands. The guide captures the contrasts at the heart of modern Ireland--a place that offers a lively cultural scene and all the luxuries the traveler would expect of a thriving European country, but still retains its wildernesses and romantic charms. The author uncovers the myths, magic, and music of her beloved country with humor and affection. Alongside all the necessary practical information, there are sections on Irish music, the meaning of place names, tracing ancestors, and the legends of the fairy people. Now in its fifth edition, this guide has been updated to include color photographs, the most current listings, extensive touring maps, and the low-down on where to sail, fish, play golf, hunt, and ride.
