Description - The Creaky Traveller in Ireland by Warren Rovetch
This is the second in Warren Rovetch's Creaky Traveler series of entertaining and informative travelogues that include tips for "the mobile but not agile". This time, Rovetch goes to the Irish counties of Clare, Kerry, and West Cork, staying in charming B&Bs but also getting to know the locals. He mixes history and culture with sightseeing to give us a very personal look at the places and people he visits. Warren Rovetch, whose unique travelogue of his trek through Scotland was recommended by NPR, now brings to life the culture, history, and wondrous natural beauty of Ireland. Part travel story and part guidebook -- but all charm and wit -- this book transports us to another culture. Interesting for all readers, "The Creaky Traveler in Ireland" is a holiday in itself. It will appeal to all those who, while not planning a trip, are nonetheless captivated by the culture and natural beauty of the Emerald Isle. Particularly helpful to more mature travelers, the book includes lots of advice for executing smooth trips.
