Overview

Devised by the creators of the award-winning Dorling Kindersley Travel Guides, Portrait of Ireland is a fascinating introduction to every facet of the Emerald Isle. From Dublin's many pleasures and treasures to the tranquillity of the country's ancient landscapes, covering every aspect of Irish life, history, and culture.
Ireland in Color: Portrait of Ireland is crammed with nearly 1,000 specially commissioned photographs, many reproduced on a large scale- unrivaled coverage of Ireland in all its diversity. In-depth features focus on key themes in Irish history and culture, including the impact of Christianity, the legacy of the Celts in literature and song, and Ireland's modern-day pub tradition.
Information At A Glance: From the banks of the Liffey to the rugged western islands, this beautifully presented book offers comprehensive information on places of interest throughout Ireland: prehistoric sites, Norman fortresses, medieval abbeys, mansions and stately homes, museums, galleries, towns and cities. It makes use of dramatic cutaway artworks and aerial drawings to give fascinating 3-D impressions of famous buildings and bird's-eye views of street plans in stunning large-format detail.
A Visual Celebration: Unparalleled in its portrayal of the big picture, but also of the intimate details of the sights to be found throughout the country, Portrait of Ireland contains hundreds of ideas for places to visit, including a region-by-region guide to golf courses. And for those who prefer to travel without leaving home, this book serves as a gorgeous reminder of the Emerald Isle's sweeping beauty and hidden secrets. This is much more than a travel companion-it is a stunning pictorial celebration of a country held in the affections of millions around the world.
