With his trademark dry wit, observant eye, and a sense of the absurd, Enfield is the perfect companion for a tour of Ireland's most beautiful areas, from the lakes of Killarney to the idyllic Joyce's Country, and from the dolmens of Clare to the deserts and neolithic remains of Mayo.

There is something special about a book read by its author : it seems to come over more naturally, as though the person is chatting to you, rather than reading. No doubt the best readers seek to achieve that result.
Edward is reading his own book, telling us about his experiences travelling through Ireland, delivered in a relaxed and jovial manner. It's what I'd call a "Sunday" book : it sustains great interest without recourse to sensational devices.
One or two young people might find it a bit boring, but for anyone who loves Irish history and culture, or who may simply have happy memories of time spent in that wonderfully inspirational country, this audio book is an absolute "must hear" !
