    1. Since I am going to be traveling to Ireland this year I am trying to get a little further into the country and culture. This is a good book full of short perspectives on aspects of Ireland by several people. Some are native Irish. Others are people who have visited Ireland. Although the book is somewhat dated in terms of Tips for the Traveler, the stories are really outstanding. Discusses everything from the weather to sectarian politics. Loads of fun.

    2. Great book of short essays/stories about Ireland and its people. Reveals what the Irish are all about. Be careful - you may get addicted to it.

    4. I marked this as read, but I didn't finish it. It was interesting enough, but not enough to hold my interest. I still recommend it, but suggest that you flip through and read what interests you instead of reading cover to cover.

    5. Read that before I went to Ireland. These books are really good travel guides.
