Format: Paperback
This was published in May 2007, and I consulted it during my stay in June and July. I can vouch for its accuracy. The strength of the book lies in the fact that as far as I can tell from the acknowledgements (worth reading for their charm), the whole was written by a young American ex-pat, Camille DeAngelis, and therefore has the consistency of a single p-o-v that reflects her encyclopedic knowledge, tempered enthusiasm, and evident stamina. While the guide is markedly less comprehensive on history, sightseeing, and local lore than competing guides, it is very thorough on practicalities such as civilized accomodation, decent eats, bus routes, and ATMs. I would use this to work out the nitty-gritty of planning the details of staying once you figure out in your itinerary where you are going and how long in each locale you'd be staying.

That's where the prefaced itineraries geared to particular cultural, scenic, historic, or recreational interests come in, as well as a few paragraphs at the end of each county section telling you how long would be ideal to remain in a certain location if you want to partake of its attractions-- or flee their lack of appealing destinations. The book lacks the flashy graphics of other guides, and is geared more to the independent visitor, perhaps on their own, on a budget rather than a tour bus or expense account. DeAngelis succeeds in giving travellers a realistic expectation of the costs, hassles, rewards, and drawbacks of getting about the remoter and less-obviously touristed places in Ireland.

I ordered this book at the recommendation of the tour director, we are heading to Ireland soon with a group. It was very informative, interesting and written in a easy to understand manner designed for everyone from first time visitor to informed regular traveler. Great information, I will have this with me in Ireland..

I've been using Moon Handbooks for thirty years because they're written precisely for travelers like me. I'm a "tweener." I'm not a hardcore rock climber, nor do I look for luxury hotels. I want to know where I can find the best day hikes and activities, the most interesting but inexpensive places to eat, and reasonable but clean accommodations. My wife and I had a FABULOUS vacation in Ireland and this Moon Guide was essential to our trip planning.

If there's anything negative for me to say about these Moon Handbooks is that many of them seem to be written by left-wing authors with an attitude about commerce and progress, and sometimes there's excessive preaching about the environment, but it's easy to just skip the drivel and focus on the relevant portions.
