The Rough Guide to Ireland. by Margaret Greenwood and Hildi Hawkins. This was the 3rd "Rough Guide" I've used, and in my opinion they are the best resources for travel to new countries. Select Format: Paperback. I'd used my first Rough Guide in Ecuador and loved it. What I love is that they cover everything, not just the tourist traps that the "mainstream" guide books do. The book's recommendations are right on and they have information on even the most out-of-the-way places.

Global Progression
I love travel books. I'll buy them even if I don't have a vacation planned. But travel books come in 2 different types:
1. The books that are full of pictures to help you plan where you want to go and what you want to see before you go. OR, you use them when you get back to refresh your memory of what you saw. They are too heavy to actually carry with you on your trip, if you are trying to pack light. DK Eyewitness guides are a great example.
2. The books that you actually carry with you to help find accommodation, local travelling tips, eating guides, etc. Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Rick Steves, etc.

Rough Guides provide great tips on accommodation and eating recommendations in all price ranges; as well as practical tips for travelling, such as which direction traffic flows most easily around a particular scenic route (The Ring of Kerry).

I have now used the Rough Guide for both Ireland and Guatemala. I have been very pleased with both. The book may seem thick, but really they aren't too heavy to carry everyday. I found several great hints both before I left and while I was travelling. In fact, I compared my guide with a fellow traveller using Rick Steves, and we found that both offered tips, though rarely the same. We felt Rough Guide's were more practical.

Before I purchased the actual book I previewed the digital copies of both Lonely Planet and Rough Guides. I originally wanted to carry only the digital copy, but realized that may prove impractical at times (on the plane, when you want quick access to notes, etc.). I went ahead and purchased the actual book. Before I went I had the DK Ireland and Backroads Ireland guides to help plan my trip, but the Rough Guide was the only book I took with me.

For future trips, I will not hesitate to use the Rough Guide. Of course, keep in mind that guide books may be published by the same company, but not written by the same authors, so one brand may not be "the best" for all countries. I will still preview the top brands before purchasing. But, in a rush, Rough Guides is becoming my go-to.
This is an excellent guide to the beautiful land and lovely people of Ireland. Situated on the edge of Europe, between Britain and the North Atlantic, Ireland offers something for practically everyone: its scenic rugged coasts and surprising beaches, its incredibly green hills and rugged valleys, and its cities, fascinating mixture of the ancient and the modern. Ireland has a Christian tradition dating back to the dawn of the common era, well marked by cathedrals, chapels, monastaries, and hermits' hut. It is one of the bastions of Celtic culture. Ireland's more modern history is both thrilling and heartbreaking, and can be found in modern Dublin and in a 19th century famine cottage.

The guide offers the standard travelers information on Ireland, along with sections on its unique culture, sports, and food and drink. Subsequent chapters explore each of its counties and major cities. A concluding section offers a sampling of Ireland's history, literature, and music. There are suggestions for room and board. The informative text is supplemented by lots of maps, graphics, and photographs. Coupled with a good motoring map, this guide may be all most tourists need to explore Ireland. "The Rough Guide to Ireland" is highly recommended to those travelers planning a visit.
My family has been using the Rough Guide for trips to Ireland for over 10 years, and it never disappoints. We've visited remarkable natural wonders and neolithic sites, as well as great pubs and restaurants, from this book. For our recent trip, my dad updated his print copy to the newest edition, and I downloaded the Kindle edition. It was nice to just search for what I needed via Kindle, but the indexing and layout of the paperback is nearly as easy...and of course, allows for notes in the margins. We've now taken 6 or 7 successful trips with little else in the navigator's seat but the Rough Guide and a great atlas!
It's so easy
This book lacked almost any pictures. It really wasn't the reference to whip out while passing through the countryside on a tour bus. The layout was logical, though. I used it in combination with another book that supplied the pictures and maps. I really liked the comprehensive history section which the picture book lacked. It gave me an understanding of the travails the Irish have suffered.
This is the first Rough Guide I've purchased, and I'll be looking for more in the series. I like the way the guide is structured, by county and town/smaller area, with attractions described in detail enough for a reader to decide whether or not to see them.
lots of information
Very good
This was a very good guide in most ways, which helped us in our travels. Its a great addition for any trip to Ireland but would also advice purchasing serveral other Ireland guide books to compliment what this one lacked. The one thing all these books lacked was the amazing back roads that made our trip so very much better.
