In this book the author divides Ireland into its four ancient provinces - Connacht (or Connaught), Munster, Leinster and Ulster, and for each selects a number of leisurely, exploratory tours through little-known countryside, villages and small towns. Included is advice on getting to know Ireland, driving and parking, finding accommodation, eating out and how to get tourist information.show more
