Ireland: History and Landscape

( 9 )

Overview

Ireland is a country with a long history and a strong identity. It is much loved around the globe not only because of the large number of nineteenth and twentieth century economic migrants who remember the homeland they left behind, but because anyone who has visited this enchanted island is captivated by the serene green beauty of much of the countryside.

Overview

Ireland is a country with a long history and a strong identity. It is much loved around the globe not only because of the large number of nineteenth and twentieth century economic migrants who remember the homeland they left behind, but because anyone who has visited this enchanted island is captivated by the serene green beauty of much of the countryside.

From the harsh Atlantic breakers of the craggy West Coast to the less obviously turbulent Irish Sea in the east; the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast a stone’s throw from Scotland, to the famous Blarney Castle in the south, Ireland is one of the few major European countries largely unspoiled by technological progress; a land where the atmosphere of history is redolent around every corner—Celtic, Viking, Norman, English, Scottish, and Irish sites can be found all over the Emerald Isle. Time, it seems, almost stands still around the misty lakes and mountains of Ireland, where ruined castles sit next to prehistoric sites, and somnolent market towns. Rooted in the past, twenty years ago Ireland could be a difficult country to travel around.

In recent years, however, this atmosphere has changed subtly. Today, with a more stable political future seemingly assured, and thanks to the “Celtic Tiger” economic revival spurred on by close ties with the European Economic Community, Ireland is a vibrant country that cleverly mixes the ancient and the modern to be a wonderful destination popular with all its visitors. From the Newgrange passage tomb—5,000 years old, built before the pyramids, one of the most remarkable prehistoric sites in the world—to Ian Ritchie Architects’ spectacular Monument of Light on O’Connell Street in Dublin—the world’s largest sculpture—today’s Ireland has a complex variety of sights for the traveler.

Ireland: History and Landscape shows off this variety of Irish heritage and lush landscape within a stunning 400-page book based on over 350 beautiful large-format photographs—many of them double-page spreads or full pages—that sum up the cultural history, atmosphere, and unforgettable landscape of Ireland.

    Ireland the green

    I purchased this book after returning from Ireland. The large format picture book has many captivating photgraphs of many of the often visited towns and landmarks. In addition, there are views of areas off the beaten path. The color and composition of the photos are top-notch. Purchasing this book will rekindle your memories of the Emerald Isle.

    Ireland History & Landscape

    We have been to Ireland and this book contains everything we saw and more.
    We keep the book in our family room so it can be viewed often. Our only regret? There isn't a book just like this for Italy!

    A Great Compilation of the Emerald Isle

    I absolutely loved this book! The pictures are gorgeous, and there is a lot of historical information that is invaluable. I also got the companion books for France and Italy. I'm just waiting for Spain.
