An excellent resource If you want to plan a great trip with a minimum of hassle, this book won’t steer you wrong. This is a great guide to use if you don’t have the time or energy to sift through a dense 600-plus page book. We used it on a recent one-week trip to Ireland and thought the hotel & restaurant recommendations were great, and the sightseeing info was all very helpful and accurate. We also liked the worksheets that help you sketch out a budget and itineraries.I don’t think it’s fair to compare this book to a Rough Guide, as other reviewers have — it’s like complaining that your pocket Webster’s doesn’t have as many words as the OED. If you’re looking for a totally comprehensive tome that covers every little detail in every corner of the country this isn’t the book for you, but you probably guessed that from the title. There is more than enough information here for a one or two week trip to see the highlights of Ireland (both the Republic and Northern Ireland). The lively, humorous tone…

Great for a first-time visit to Ireland If you can read only one book to decide what to see and do on your first trip to Ireland, “Ireland for Dummies” is an ideal choice.I read carefully their descriptions of popular and off-the-beaten-path sights, and advice for first-time visitors to the Emerald Isle. This book earns high praise. I agree with the authors’ priorities, and they cover the must-see places and must-do activities with style. Reading this book, I was ready to throw my passport and some clothes into a bag and head to Ireland again, myself.In addition to raving about the sights that most American visitors will want to see, the general tone of the book is enthusiastic. The information is well arranged, including lists of sites that are close together so that you can make the most of your vacation in Ireland.If you’re traveling with children, this book will guide you to the most fun, must-see destinations for the entire family. Few guidebooks are this helpful and understanding…

Perfect for what I needed and wanted… I was given the opportunity to speak at a user group meeting in Dublin this upcoming June, and I decided I didn’t want to be completely ignorant about the country. While it won’t be a touring vacation, I’d still like to know a bit more about where I’ll be visiting. To that end, I received a review copy of Ireland for Dummies by Liz Albertson. It’s a fun and easy read, and at least I won’t be a *completely* stupid American tourist now.Contents:Part 1 – Introducing Ireland: Discovering the Best of Ireland; Digging Deeper into Ireland; Deciding When and Where to Go; Following an Itinerary – Four Great OptionsPart 2 – Planning Your Trip to Ireland: Managing Your Money; Getting to Ireland; Getting around Ireland; Booking Your Accommodations; Catering to Special Travel Needs and Interests; Taking Care of the Remaining DetailsPart 3 – Dublin and the East Coast: Dublin; Easy Trips North of Dublin – Counties Meath and Louth; Easy Trips South…
