Meet the Author

Christi Daugherty is an expat American. A former journalist, she's the author of several travel books including Frommer's Ireland 2009 and Frommer's Paris Day by Day. She also co-wrote Frommer's MTV Ireland and Frommer's MTV Europe. She learned everything she knows about Ireland accidentally, while getting lost repeatedly over the course of many years. She likes to think that she gets lost so you don't have to. These days she and her husband and co-writer Jack Jewers spend their spare time traveling around Ireland (she drives, he navigates) looking for new places to explore. She spends whatever time is left over writing unpublished mystery novels.

Jack Jewers has directed films for the BBC, reviewed publications for Time Out, and contributed to several guidebooks, including previous editions of Frommer's Ireland. He also co-wrote Frommer's Ireland Day by Day. Jack grew up listening to his great aunt's tales about living in Dublin during the Civil War. She once leaned out of a window during a late-night battle to tell the gunmen to keep the noise down—people were trying to sleep. Born and raised in England, Jack proposed to his Irish-American wife at a spa in County Kerry. She said yes. That spa gets a great review in this book.

    Lacks relevant information

    Though it ha some important information in it, when it comes to the sites this book falls short. When most people travel to Ireland they don't care about fishing, golf, etc. They also don't want to waste their time on children's museums, art museums and things they can find in their own country. The lack of historically and culturally relevant sites in this book is mind boggling. I can't seem to fathom how a pewter factory gets 3 stars and a historic castle gets 1.

    Very helpful, lots of descriptions

    This book has lots of good information about Ireland. They had loads of hotel listings, and good dexcriptions of each hotel, and the pricing for each hotel. They also have suggested itineraries for seeing as much of Ireland as you can in one week or two, which was really helpful.
