Smaller places, such as Glencolmcille in Donegal, are slightly out of date as to a few details, but overall, as this is Mar. 2014 copyright, it seems reliable. Cushendall in Antrim proved to have more coverage than I'd expected, a good sign, with a hostel, a note about a pub's kitchen's erratic hours, and a historical context via Thackeray. A tourist attraction such as the tidy-town of Adare in Limerick covered its sights and eateries efficiently, and the nearby city has a map easy to navigate and a respectable tally of the region's highlights separately mapped.
This pattern, of a main city or market town, surrounding villages, and a county (or few) with their best sights arrayed, is followed from Dublin, south to Waterford, over to Cork, up past Kerry to Clare and Limerick, then to Galway, Mayo, Donegal, over to Derry and Belfast and that province, and then into the Midlands. A handsome presentation of the Aran Islands and Brú na Bóinne, for instance, enhance these sections.
Photos, where to eat and sleep, how to get where (driving is expected as a pre-requisite; the maps are detailed enough for the main sights, but any traveler to Ireland knows that side roads and odd junctions abound to tempt or bewilder the unwary trusting in only a guidebook). The trad and top ten rock music playlists, and the reading lists, revealed some surprising choices, showing insight from contributors. Culturally, the historical and literary sections appended should appeal to those needing a quick rundown on the contexts for this very storied island.
Maps in these newer Lonely Planet Guidebooks (I've also checked out the 9th ed. 2014 London and the newest Discover Europe and Great Britain ones) are certainly more colorful than the older editions, which tended towards muted two-tone illustrations and highlights. A sewn-in Dublin map is large enough to easily cover the city grid, with attractions in red print. I never knew a Leprechaun Museum is on its Northside, I admit. Part of the fun of armchair travel is finding out such quirks, whether or not you seek them out when making a real visit back to Ireland.
The content of approx. 63 pages of the book is shown by the Amazon.com's "LOOK INSIDE!" function. What cannot be seen is that the LP basic series including this ISBN 1742207499 Ireland has covers laminated only outside, its text is detailed comparably to the Eyewitness, however not as profusely illustrated and mostly only in 4 colors: black, blue, red, and beige, except a few dozens of pages with photos in full color printed on low quality paper.
Though the LP Discover series is in full color, it is less detailed than this improved LP basic series, has fewer illustrations than, and is not as good as, Eyewitness, which is 1 inch longer and thus less handy, but has the excellent flexible vinyl bindings, greater number of details, superior layout, graphics, clarity, and - in general - the quality of being a souvenir\memento.
The travel book is broken down into section dealing with specific counties, which makes it much easier to do your research and gather information about a particular section of the country. At the beginning of the book there is a “Top 21” section for those places that would be interesting to visit. There are neat sections dealing with such articles as “Itineraries”, “The Great Outdoors”, “Eat & Drink Like A Local”, “Regions At a Glance” and many more.
Then there are specific sections about areas such as County Cork. Want to know about a good place to eat, well the listing shows this as well as best places to stay. No book is perfect or that comprehensive, however this should give you a quick start and with the help of the internet you should be able to come up with a great itinerary for your travels.
The travel book contains more than 735 pages with much of it well written and up to date. The index is 10 pages on thus you should be babel to find about any subject that is on your mind. A great book at a fair price.
While you will not find tons of color photos in this text, it does operate as a sort of advanced phone-book. For the most part, it is strictly black and white text that offers ideas on lodging, eating, activities, etc. Nonetheless, this can save one a great deal of time researching online sites. (And, I have rarely been "steered wrong" by Lonely Planet ... of course, we have driven to activities and eateries that ceased to exist. Still, I think this is a given considering the length of time it requires to edit, publish, distribute and then read these books. We always forgive these moments ... but have also learned to call ahead under the guise of inquiring about hours of operation).
The small sections that we liked most were the "Worth the Trip" segments. The majority were ideas that we had not really considered, like "Durras Cheese" (250). Likewise, we enjoyed the "Local Knowledge" selections ... especially the entry on "Meadhigh Larkin, Ghost Hunter" (497). Very cool.
For me, these "blue-spined" texts are perfect once you've read through the Discover version, settled on the particular destination, and are in the throes of compiling a detailed itinerary. Since I am frequently the only one in my family to read this particular series, I often become the tour-guide (with the information garnered in these). I cannot say that I mind; in fact, I usually find it tremendously gratifying (even if the family is ready to throttle me after fun-fact #32 for the day).
Undoubtedly, these are a phenomenal investment!
