Full-color maps throughout. Tells you everything about the food, from bacon & cabbage to Irish stew and black pudding, and the best places to get it. All about the thousands of historical sites to explore prehistoric stone circles, ruined castles, Ogham stones. Explores all the towns, from Killarnee to Glengarriff. Details all the outdoor activities, such as hill walking, golf, deep sea angling. Plus the best places to stay for all budgets, based on personal visits. Like other Adventure Guides, this shows you how to experience the country more intensely and directly than most travelers know how to do getting out of the tour bus, the taxi or the rental car and seeing the place close-up, through walks, bike rides, horseback excursions, culinary adventures, interacting with the people. The author, an Ireland native, is the Arts Editor and Book Editor at The Irish Examiner newspaper. Other guides to Ireland lack this level of detail, the outdoor adventure perspective and the emphasis on direct experience of the country. The native Irish resident author offers an insider s perspective that the other guides lack. Tina Neylon lives in County Cork and Ireland is her passion. As a freelance journalist, much of her work has been published in The Irish Examiner, where she has also served as the Books Editor. Her knowledge of the country is extensive and she's thrilled to write Hunter's Adventure Guide to Ireland. "Aiming at making the visitor a participant rather than just a spectator, the author succeeds admirably in her descriptions, from Ireland's pub life to its prehistoric sites, the spectacular Cliffs of Moher and kissing the Blarney Stone. Neylon takes us on a fabulous and thorough journey throughout this beautiful country. Where to stay is thoroughly researched, with choices from rentals to government-approved hostels, B&Bs and RV parks. The Irish author's book is a compilation of how best to enjoy the delights her country holds for visitors." --Edyth Shepard, Anton Community Newspapers. "Excellent choice. This travel series is one of the best . The book is very well detailed and user-friendly. It's well priced, too, and a great bargain. I consider a good guidebook essential when visiting a new place and I was thrilled with this one. The writer is from Ireland and the book is filled with her insider knowledge. The photos and maps are great, as are the driving instructions. If you buy one guidebook to Ireland, then get this one - it has everything you need to know!!!!" --A reader. "I had the chance to take a look at the sample chapter (Dublin) that's available on your website and I have to say I am very impressed with layout and detailed information. I have long been a fan of the Lonely Planet Guides, but I compared your Dublin chapter to the one in Lonely Planet and am far more impressed with your guide. I look forward to reading through the rest of the guide when it arrives!" --Ireland Tour Operator. "An excellent addition to the Adventure Guide series, packed with detail, from where to stay and eat, to where to shop for local crafts and how to enjoy historic sites. This guide covers a broad range of Irish travel delights, from horseback excursions and walking to surfing and cycling trips. Highly recommended." The Midwest Book Review. "I just loved this book. It is packed with all sorts of helpful info and is written really well. The photos are fantastic!!! The book is very big and covers every part of the country and is really well laid out. I don't like the way some other guidebooks have really small print and aren't in any order but this one is easy to use." -- Amazon review. "Ireland is steeped in history, tradition and culture, making it one of the most popular vacation destinations worldwide. Its story is told in centuries-old castles (some of which now welcome overnight guests); stone circles strategically placed to shine in the winter solstice moon. This book, written by an Ireland native, tells it all." -- Amazon review
