Its prices greatly reduced by an ongoing ecomic crisis, but its spirit undaunted and its population as garrulous and outgoing as ever, Ireland has a special appeal to the tourist, as shown by the large yearly number of visitors. Our author, Jack Jewers, may make his headquarters in London, but he proposed to his Irish-American wife at a spa on the Ring of Kerry (it gets a great review in this book). We're sure our readers will enjoy his affectionate guide to the Emerald Isle.
