Backroads Ireland

Backroads Ireland

On my bookshelf

This is one of the first travel guides I purchased when I began traveling to Ireland (obviously I have linked the newest edition).

It's a nice guide if you want to get off the main tourist trails. The routes in my older edition seem to be the same as those in the new edition, so I imagine that information (accommodations, dining, etc) has just been updated.

Along the way, these driving tours of Ireland highlight day trips and activities such as walks and hikes, bird-watching and beach strolls, islands and lighthouses, and children's attractions.
