Living in Irelandby Barbara Stoeltie
Synopses & Reviews
There is hardly a land more characterized by charming country homes and castles than Ireland. Images of dewy plush foliage, rolling green hills, and fairy-tale cottages and castles come quickly to mind. The homes featured here live up to the most fanciful of expectations, ranging from quaint, cozy little dwellings to a plethora of different types of castles and stately homes. Of special interest is the breathtaking Leixlip Castle, where the owner of Guinness beer resides.
"The glossiest of glossy books.... These pages offer evidence of a sturdy Irish Renaissance, a reclaiming of style along with the title deeds which is much more significant in cultural terms than perhaps the Stoelties can identify or express. Their book seems to assert that something is going on in Ireland which is not merely the maintenance of an architectural or decorative tradition." Irish Times
