As I also own the three Over America series Movies in BD, so I was looking forward to this one. But Over Ireland while the pictures are stunning and the narative is good, The speed in which the scenery flashes by is too quick. this results in frequent backtracking and pausing just to get a good view of the magnificient sights. If only there was a way to slow the movie down in many places this would have been really great.

The first time we saw this video was on a friend's computer. He had the Blue Ray version and it was just awesome. The colors were the truest colors I've ever seen. I bought the High Def. version and it's just as beautiful. Having been to Ireland several times, it brought back many wonderful memories, and we saw many of the places we had been on the dvd. I very highly recommend it!!

Scenery - fantastic, what can I say.

Music - At times far too loud and I much prefer natural sounds like
water, seagulls etc... Music is a choice of the director and
not always the choice of the viewer!! Would have been better
without. You have the option to watch the dvd without the
commentary but not to hear the commentary without the music.

Commentary - Ok but in parts this was totally drowned out by the
music !!!!! Which was a big, big mistake. I bought this
as an educational tool for foreign students, however
I had trouble making out what was being said so they
would have no chance !! Sorry but the quality of the
music and commentary was a big disappointment to me.
I hope the makers read this and take on board my
constructive criticism. Thank you.

This looks as good or better than when I saw this in HD on PBS. Maybe even better than the three times I actually visited Ireland. ;-)

I would have liked to see more significant sites, but it is only 60 minutes long.

I am not sure what I was expecting, but I was disappointed overall. The aerial photography was good.....that which you could see without a blur. I sense there was a need to cram too much into too short a time frame.

I have been to Ireland several times and actually flew over parts in a private plane. I had a much better view than what this video presented as the pilot was so high, many things were indistinguishable. Ergo, many of the ruins and buildings were not captured in their true size. Add to this, there was little or no dialogue about many of the sights.

I don't like to be critical of people's endeavors, but neither do I like spending money on something I did not enjoy. I ended up trying the video a 2nd time in bed. On low volume, I went sounded to sleep listening to the "New Age" music.

We got to watch "Over Ireland" on PBS one day and abslutely loved it. I have always wanted to go to Ireland and have an Irish heritage. My brother was able to go a few years ago. He just passed away three days after Christmas. He LOVED Ireland so much; was into history and was planning on going back some day for another visit. He had seen "Over Ireland" and thought it was awesome, too. I particulary LOVE the song at the end "I Will". It is the most beautiful song I have ever heard. I wish there was a cd available with that song and others on it by the same artist. But I believe that song was an original song written for this DVD. I can't find any CD's by that artist. Anyway, I purchased this DVD in order to feel closer to my late brother. This DVD is well done and will be the closest I will ever get to Ireland.

This is an excellent overview of Ireland. In BluRay the scenery is clear and spectacular.

I love travelogues and the "Over Ireland" DVD is one of the best. From the cities like Dublin to the various farm lands the viewer is shown the scenery of Ireland in all its lush green splendor that's sure to impress anybody, Irish or not. I strong recommend "Over Ireland" as it is one of the best in this series.
