    1. If you're planning a trip to Ireland, this is a FABULOUS guide! You'll find information on everything from hotels to walking tours, to how to prevent getting sick overseas. I'm going to read it again when we're actually planning a trip.

    2. Just starting to plan a trip sometime.I like how the "dummnies" books are set up. Lots of general information, history in addition to specific area information.

    3. I zoomed through this book today. So incredibly helpful, especially for a "dummy" when it comes to Irish culture. Even more excited for my trip to Ireland this summer!!
