    A must-have if planning a trip to Ireland

    This is a great book. I reviewed several books on Ireland from the library. Fodor's was the best. I purchased my own to study and take with me on the trip. This is a perfect book for planning an itinerary. It gives a wealth of info including highlights of each place to visit and where to eat and stay. When highlighting places to visit, this book gives "Fodor's Choice" and "highly recommended" on some attractions. Fodor's begins with an overview of Ireland. The book breaks Ireland down by locations makiing it easy to plan an itinerary. Fordor's also covers Ireland essentials such as transportation, communications, money exchange, tipping and more. It also comes with a map.
