Anyway, afterward we will head north following the coast as far as Gallway , then even further north, to and then Dublin and Cork again. Eventually We'll fetch the little angels, in order to come back home.
So I would like to read something about Ireland, what I would like is: an old fashioned travelling books and some readable historical ones, plus , for good weight an historic novel set over there.
I am in no hurry, August is six month away
Following Ireland and similar tags on librarything I selected
Lonely Planet Ireland (Country Guide) by Fionn Davenport
Round Ireland In Low Gear by Eric Newby
Freewheeling Through Ireland: Enfield Pedals the West Coast by Edward Enfield
Ireland : A Novel by Frank Delaney
And reading a thread in an another forum I attend, I was intrigued by these ones
Trinity by Leon Uris
The Macdermots of Ballycloran by Anthony Trollope
The Princes of Ireland and The Rebels of Ireland by Edward Rutherfurd
Ireland: A History by Robert Kee
The Killing of Major Denis Mahon Sister Fidelma books by Peter Tremayn
The Red-Haired Girl from the Bog by Patricia Monoghan
I’m going to check them out
touchstone should be fixed
I'm a fan of Edward Enfield (though his last one on the Danube was disappointing), and was going to suggest his book if you didn't know of it already.
Not sure if this fits but I enjoyed Round Ireland with a Fridge by Tony Hawks...sorry, touchstones is not cooperating.
I also love Kenny's Bookshop in Galway, although they have moved since my last visit, they have a great website and will ship books too. www.bookshop.kennys.ie
There is a US travel guide guru that I really like, his name is Rick Steves and he has a ton of information on his website in case his books are not available where you live. He specializes in Europe and has great suggestions for day trips and off the beaten track finds. www.ricksteves.com
