Praise For…

"Elegantly written" Extremely helpful and very up-to-date, this is the best introductory planner to the magic world of ancient Ireland that I know, as it combines humor and wisdom, lightly-worn, with the most lucid, practical advice any avid explorer could wish."
— Dr. Peter Harbison, of the Royal Irish Academy, a renowned scholar of Irish antiquity, and author of Pre-Christian Ireland, Pilgrimage in Ireland, and The Guide to National and Historic Monuments in Ireland

"A great compact book that tells about tombs, forests, castles and ancient settlements that were in Ireland long before Saint Patrick, thatched roofs and Guinness stout. Beautiful colored photos and illustrations show us the remains of ancient Ireland."

"Looks past the thatched roofs and clay pipes, past Patrick and the saints, past the Celts... to Ireland of the Neolithic, Bronze, and early Iron Ages. They suggest how to plan, execute, and appreciate a tour of the oldest surviving structures, then set out three itineraries each focusing on a particular time period. In addition to the usual information, advice, maps and color photographs, they identify activities for children."

"Gorgeous color photography illustrates Ancient Ireland, which leads both the prospective tourist and the armchair traveler on itineraries following landmarks from prehistoric times to medieval ages. Maps, extensive descriptions, lodging recommendations, and inviting background information on the sites that allow one to view Ireland as it has been through the ages of time distinguish this handy, 'must-have' for Irish history buffs planning to travel and see the land's wonders for themselves."
