Recommended Reading For Your Tour of Ireland

Q– Which Travel Guidebooks & General Reading Books do you recommend we read in preparation for our visit to Ireland?
A– A good book will always deliver a sense of place or deepen the pool of knowledge before, during or after a visit. Luckily for our visitors you will have an up to date living guide book in your Ireland Chauffeur Travel Driver Guide. We do recommend bringing one supplementary guide for your own reference. The guide we recommend the Most is the Eyewitness Guide to Ireland as it is very pictorial and can bring attractions to life by viewing the graphic maps and 3d interiors. For a great historical guide to Ireland we recommend Jonathon Bardons "History of Ireland in 250 Episodes". This amazing guide can also be purchased on I Tunes in audio format. For modern day economic and socio political information on Ireland we highly recommend the books of David Mc Williams including "The Popes Children". Mc Williams is a respected economist in Ireland and his books are insightful and entertaining. From a literature perspective there are so many great authors from James Joyce, Wb Yeats, Oscar Wilde, Flann O Brien, GB Shaw, Dean Swift to mention a few that its hard to make recommendations. Modern day authors include John Banville, Colm Tobin and Maeve Binchy.

When is the best time of year to Visit Ireland ?

FAQs: "Every season has its charms and advantages as well as disadvantages for visiting Ireland. Spring is a nice time to come as it is not too busy and the weather is generally very mild and lots of flowers coming into bloom. Summer is peak tourist season and the hotels are more expensive but the weather is better and there are more people around which can be fun. Autumn is also popular as the weather can be nice and its less expensive, this is a good time to golf in Ireland as it is very mild and settled. Winter is often cold and wet but this can be a lovely time to come as there is a cozy atmosphere in the pubs and restaurants so its very welcoming. Also you will have all the countryside to yourself" - Shane Leahy

Limerick for Shane

"There was a young man from Dublin
Who organized this tour without mumblin’
He took six chicks from the Canadian sticks
And listened to their jokes without grumblin’!"

From The Canadian Chicks from Vancover who travelled in late August 2009.
