Customer Reviews

It provides lots of insider tips and cultural information and descriptions of sights.
Peter O'Brien
The book is bulky enough to be all you need, yet small enough to take along in a large pocket or small bag.
Patrick Michael Murphy
This book does a great job of breaking down the basics (as do most Lonely Planet travel guides).
Eric

... I have found this guide to Ireland to be a great adjunct to him! For one thing, Rick Steves is not complete; he covers what he covers. For example, Sligo Town -- zilch! zip! nada! Lonely Planet Ireland [LP] has a nice section on the town.

So I found I have relied on LP a lot in my travel planning for Ireland. I still use Steves (who has better sections on "eating" and "sleeping," but I like to compare the two. If I decide to take one of these HEAVY guides on our trip -- it will be the LP guide (which is actually heavier than Steves').

I'm not sure why the other reviewer had problems with the Kindle edition. (Perhaps he purchased the PDF version from Lonely Planet instead of the Kindle edition from Amazon, which I agree, does not work well on a Kindle.) All the Kindle links, search, and other functions worked well on my Kindle keyboard. I originally borrowed the book version from the library and purchased the Kindle edition to avoid carrying a book on my trip. Besides not being able to see photos in color, I prefer the Kindle editions due to the search and bookmark functions.
In terms of content, this guide covered all the areas I traveled to (Dublin, Galway, Aran Islands, Cong, and Connemara) and was a great reference throughout the trip, as Lonely Planet guides have always been in my experience.

Lonely Planet, long considered "The Bible" by modest expense oriented travelers, has out done itself with this newly designed version. The color graphics greatly assist the reader. The color maps are easier to read and contain the usual fine detail the Lonely Planet series is known for. Finally adding a TOP Pick is a welcome addition.

Great job and continued thanks to the staff of Lonely Planet for this consistently great product.

Lonely Planet Guides are the everyman's travel guide. They're clear, easy to understand, present reasonably-priced options, and present lots of possibilities for young people, casual travelers, and especially those traveling independently. If I'm traveling outside the U.S. (and that happens frequently), I've usually got a Lonely Planet Guide in my hip pocket. Oh, by the way, don't forget to check LP's up-to-the-minute blog, Thorn Tree ([...] ThornTree can tell you exactly what's happening NOW wherever you're going -- road closures? Check. Hostile post-coup border guards? Check. Yesterday's delicious food from the street vendors in Siem Reap, Cambodia? Check. Train delays crossing the Hungary - Romania border last Tuesday? You got it.

If this is the future of kindle travel guides,I will never buy another. The concept is great. You click on references that drill you down into more detail. But the navigation leaves you bewildered and its just too difficult to quickly find a specific item. Perhaps a better table of contents would help. I don't know. I am in Ireland now and I find it useless.

This was my absolute favorite of several travel books I purchased for an upcoming trip to Ireland. It is very comprehensive, full of very practical information and advice, including highlights, free sights, and inserts with interesting "insights". It contains far more practical information than the DK books, but fewer photographs. I enjoy both, so I really like both styles of travel books (and purchased both). I don't tend to read or use the hotel and restaurant guides in any travel books. Perhaps I am ill-advised, but I put more weight on Tripadvisor reviews. These give me a feel for "the majority opinion" rather than that of only one or a few people compiling recommendations for a book.

I'd say this is the one book to get if you're only going to buy one.

The book has a lot of information on pubs, restaurants, some hotels but not as much cultural information and descriptions of sights as I would have liked to see. Nice maps and pretty good information on bus/train/transport connections from place to place. Overall I have found it helpful in my travel planning.

I use this guide book and Rick Steves' , they do compliment each other. One without the other is not sufficient.
