If you’re planning to spend a week or two in Ireland, this would be a good guide to introduce you to the wonderful island. It’s chock-full of small essays on various aspects of the regions and culture with planners, good-but-not-great photos and a pull-out map.

You’ll get an overview of major attractions, information about the major towns with a brief section on places to stay with starred top recommendations. A table of contents is sectioned in twelve parts, starting with “Experience Ireland” wh

I bought the Kindle edition of this book for our recent trip to Ireland, rather than carrying heavy travel books on this trip. I found it frustrating to use, although it seemed to contain the necessary information.

The most significant complaint I have is that there is no index, so finding information is difficult. I used it primarily in the evenings to read about the next day's sights, to be able to choose which of the sights to see in our limited time. The only way to find things was to use the

I have never been to Ireland. But if I do make that trip some day, this book would be a valuable help to me. Fodor's travel books are a pretty good product, very consistent. This is no different.

The book is organized sensibly enough: a generic introduction to Ireland, and then a region by region treatment. At the regional level (e.g., Dublin, the Midlands, the Northwest, Northern Ireland), the reader is introduced to placves to stay, places to eat, places to visit. There are many maps, which hel

Poor. Not very good, but not awful. Would never buy another Fodor Travel Guide after buying the England and Ireland. Map was useless pretty much. Next time, will buy Lonely Island instead or Rick Steve.
Positives: color photos. some information on hotels and detailed information on main sights.
The Book of Kells is NOT the number one attraction in Dublin, despite what this idiot says multiple. The entire country would have to be ashamed if it were.

Certainly the most comprehensive guide book I've picked up on Ireland so far. It's really well organized, has fantastic photos, and a lot more information on just about everything than I've seen in any other book so far. I borrowed a copy from the library, but I'm definitely planning on buying my own copy to take with us on our trip.

Detailed explanations of places of interest, places to eat, and the best ways to get around, with some cultural and historical information thrown in. One of the best guidebooks (and guidebook companies) you could possibly buy to help plan a trip.

Pretty decent travel book with lots of pictures. It helped plan a great trip to Ireland but some parts are somewhat misleading. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about taking a trip there, just don't use it as your only resource.

One of my three favorite Irish travel guides. My favorite feature is "Fodor's Choice" ratings which highlight places and events the editor's particularly recommend along with an explanation of *why* they recommend it.

There are lots of maps for walking in Dublin. I consider buying this so that I can rip out the sections I might need for the day I will be in Dublin.

Just in case I get selected for Special Convention in Dublin =) Whooohoooo I'm going to Dublin in July!

I've learned there is way too much to see and two weeks isn't going to be enough time.

Found it kind of boring and hard to skim when planning our upcoming trip to Ireland.
