Though it has largely recovered from its economic crisis of 2008, Ireland's price structure is still among the most moderate in Europe, and its public is still eager to attract additional tourism. And thus they welcome the visitor with the warmest reception of perhaps any country. The author of this highly-successful guidebook is an enthusiastic observer of that country, who proposed to his Irish-American wife at a spa on the Ring of Kerry (it gets a great review in this book). His love of Ireland is shown on every page, and perhaps accounts for the large sales that this popular, perennial guide enjoys each year. Two hundred eighty-eight pages, an Easy Guide of pithy, personal recommendations.
