This and a Map Book got us through the whole country
on October 12, 2009
In a once in a lifetime trip, my father and I went to the old country, Ireland, for an extended period and went everywhere. We rented a car at the Dublin airport and drove into Dublin. That was my first time driving on the left side of the road and with the steering wheel on the right-hand side, and after the long flight. Well, some things you learn by being thrown into the deep end.
The Lonely Planet guide was very helpful in locating everything once we arrived in every city. It explained many things about all our surroundings and that helped get us started. Even though I gave the maximum stars, one of the problems in this and every guide is that the writers list the places they went and not all the places. Not only that, but they tend to list the places where only tourists go. But all these books do that so one must take the good and look for themselves when they arrive at their destination.
