Overview

Private Ireland reveals the essence of Irish living style in an atmospheric photographic study of some of the country's most evocative and charming homes—from grand estates to characterful farmhouses and fancifull follies. The houses and studios of some of the country's most interesting creative spirits are included, from writers, artists and musicians to artisans, architects and designers. A visual exploration of Irish living style, both north and south, Private Ireland documents the setting, the character and the idiosyncrasies of each featured home—whether an historic abbey, a Dublin townhouse, a romantic castle, or a simple whitewashed cottage by the sea.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Estates, farmhouses, seaside cottages, and a Dublin townhouse are among the interiors pictured here. McBride, whose photographs have appeared in Architectural Digest and House & Garden, presents lavish color photographs that show a style similar to an English country look, though a few interiors are modern, including one with Japanese influences. Rolling Stones fans might be interested to see Ron Wood's home and to read Marianne Faithfull's introduction. For large interior design collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
