Product Description

Though a relatively small island, Ireland has had a large impact on the rest of the world - from the literate monks who pulled Europe out of the 'Dark Ages' to today's high tech 'Silicon Bog' economy. Historical currents still run deep, as travelers wander through ancient moss-covered forts crouching in lush valleys and catch their breath on castle turrets crowning windswept hilltops. Charming fishing villages dot the coast near wave-battered cliffs. And there really are forty shades of green.

In Rick Steves' Ireland, you'll find in-depth Rick-tested information on trip planning, the best sights, hotels, restaurants, tourist offices, transportation, telephones, festivals and holidays, mail and e-mail, weather, easy-to-follow maps, and great self-guided neighborhood walks.
