The Most Beautiful Villages of Ireland (Most Beautiful Villages)

The Most Beautiful Villages of Ireland (Most Beautiful Villages) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clusters of white cottages huddled between hills of an unbelievably rich green, villages of a single street, dazzling in their array of color washes and picturesque shop-fronts--such are the villages of Ireland, which to this day are living working communities.

The most beautiful of these villages are captured here in Christopher Fitz-Simon's sensitive commentaries and Hugh Palmer's evocative photographs. This is a journey full of rural gems, some famous, others less so. Here are the colored coastal villages of Cork, their vibrant houses sloping down to a sea that so many Irish people crossed to found other communities in America. Here too are the stunning medieval churches of Roscommon and Galway; and the villages of Antrim, standing ruggedly in defiance of the northern seas.

Synopsis:

This work presents images and impressions of villages in Ireland which as well as being beautiful are working, living communities. The book follows the divisions of ancient provinces to uncover rural beauty spots, and also contains a guide to sites of interest, markets, hotels and restaurants.

Synopsis:

A visual trip through the Emerald Isle: an unparalleled portrayal of the rural beauty and charm of Ireland.

Synopsis:

The latest volume in the bestselling "Most Beautiful Villages" series, this extraordinary visual and written record of the Irish village is completed by a guide to the most important sites, markets, hotels, and restaurants. Color photos.
