"Best Ireland Travel Guide Available"
Rick Steves travel guides, including Ireland 2012, are all alike and uniformly excellent. My wife and I have used his guides for all 12 of our Europe trips and the information is invaluable. He describes and ranks all the best places to see and provides many practical and logistical suggestions. He recommends places to stay and eat, which makes it important that you have the most recent edition when you travel. We have stayed almost exclusively in places he describes (comfortable, but not luxurious) and have not been disappointed a single time. Rick Steves Ireland 2012 is highly recommended and at Amazon, the price is very reasonable.
