Lonely Planet overkill -- one too many guides... 18 mai 2014
Par C. Williamson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I like Lonely Planet guidebooks, and I have two others on Ireland, which I've visited before and to which I'll be returning soon. But I fail to see the need for this book. LP differentiates between this book and their regular LP IRELAND by saying that this one deals with the most popular tourist attractions, *But*, for only a dollar more ($24.99 vs. $23.99) you can get the full 736-page guide rather than this 336-page condensed guide. The writers are the same, most of the copy is the same, and many of the photos are the same, so I can't see why anyone would prefer DISCOVER IRELAND to IRELAND. Even the Dublin City fold-out map is the same. The only physical difference is that DISCOVER is on shiny paper. I can see the point of LP's IRELAND'S BEST TRIPS, which, while it covers much of the same material, does have some interesting routes and routing information, but DISCOVER IRELAND is just making another trip to the same well. Go for the IRELAND guide and give this one a pass...unless you want 400 fewer pages and shiny paper.

Makes you want to visit 14 juin 2014
Par Melissa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This book makes me want to travel to the Emerald Isle. I found it absolutely fascinating. The authors do a fabulous job of describing Ireland and there are many lovely pictures to accompany the text. Sections are broken down between differing areas of the country and within those areas are historical sights, (with very good pictures and diagrams like Trinity College), and also parks, seaside getaways, and Irish pubs. Hotels and eateries are included in every section. Be aware though that this is not Ireland on the cheap, some of the recommended spots can be pricey. There is not a whole lot included for children either.

However if you love to hike, there are some fine suggestions for hikers and also biking too. There are plenty of castles to explore (even tells you how to kiss the Blarney Stone,) churches and the beauty of the landscape is really breathtaking. Northern Ireland is also included.

I also enjoyed the brief history lesson the authors give to acquaint the traveler with the country. This is important to understanding the Troubles that existed for years. This book is a great introduction to Ireland and I liked that there were suggested itineraries for those who may only have a few days to explore.

A Great, Broad Overview of Ireland 28 août 2014
Par Kenny Stoneman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Lonely Planet's "Discover Ireland" is essentially a concise version of their much larger travel guide, entitled simply, "Ireland". I'll admit that when I bought this, I didn't understand the difference between the two volumes, but Lonely Planet had never failed me before, so I went for it. For the sake of posterity, I'll briefly go over what Discover Ireland does for you.

While the standard Ireland travel guide is hundreds of pages longer and contains probably thousands of more items (food, attractions, accommodations, etc.), Discover Ireland forgoes the obscure and niche items, sticking to the most popular or most unique things the island has to offer. This allows for much more in-depth information about each entry, as opposed to the 1-2 lines found in the main travel guide. Like the big book, it's broken down into regions, but it also has multiple itineraries for each region to make planning trips (especially condensed ones) much easier. On top of that, the section for each region also has a few pages highlighting the "must-see" attractions in the area. The whole book is also in color, which makes for a much more visually stimulating experience.

The casual vacationer may be perfectly content with this book, as it offers all the essentials of an Irish vacation. However, adventurous souls, or those a bit more well-traveled, will likely want the more in-depth Ireland travel guide. Ideally, though? These two books are best used in unison. The pretty pictures and broad information from Discover Ireland are great for making a rough itinerary, while the main guide allows you to fill in the blanks with the less known attractions, or to find accommodation more easily. Having been to Ireland, and heading there again in less than a week, I can tell you that I've got both in my carry-on, and plan to use them extensively!

Inferior to Eyewitness Travel & Baedeker Guides & LP basic series 29 août 2014
Par Eugene Tenenbaum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
The world of travel guides is dominated by two giants: classic, illustrated in color, very detailed Baedeker (since 1839), and more exclusive, profusely illustrated in color, detailed Eyewitness Travel Guides. Lonely Planet (LP) resembles more Baedeker, but Baedeker is better published and handier, has clearer layout and better maps, and its plastic wallet cover holds the guide and map protected in all weather.

The LP Discover series is - as this relatively thin ISBN 1742207480 Ireland - in full color, but less detailed than the Baedeker, the Eyewitness, or the LP basic series. It has more illustrations than the Baedeker, but fewer than, and not as good as, the Eyewitness, which is 1 inch longer and thus less handy, but has excellent flexible vinyl bindings, greater number of details, and superior layout, graphics, clarity, and - in general - the quality of being a souvenir\memento.

The LP Discover series including this Ireland has covers laminated only outside. For the record, the LP basic series has text detailed comparably to the Eyewitness, however it is not as profusely illustrated and mostly only in 3 colors: black, white, and blue, except a few dozens of pages with photos in full color printed on low quality paper, but still superior to the LP Discover series.

Ireland Captured Between the Covers 9 août 2014
Par Spudman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Lonely Planet books I've read previously have impressed me with the stunning graphics and useful information residing between the covers. Discover Ireland lives up to the high standards set by a long line of books and writers. Don't let the number of pages overwhelm you as this is a very manageable book of convenient size that can be tucked away in purse or bag easily. One planning a trip to Ireland can plan an itinerary with this book and use it to scout places to stay and places to eat. The authors even give readers a timetable, suggesting what to do two months ahead of time, one month, and two weeks. As one enjoys the vividly outstanding photographs, longing to see the vistas in person would not be unusual.

The book is filled with firsthand suggestions, insider tips, maps, and photographs. There's even a bit of recurring humor about the Irish weather that never grew old for me. Concluding this travel guide is an excellent segment covering Ireland's history, culture, customs, and language. It's a must read.

Whether you a planning a trip to the emerald isle in person or vicariously, you'll enjoy losing yourself in the pages of Lonely Plantet's Discover Ireland.
