The book * Mc Carthy´s Bar * written by Pete McCarthy is a fine travel book for an Ireland trip. Pete McCarthy was born Irish but has spent most of his life in England. He therefore decides to do a tour from Cork to Donegal. On that trip he discovers that despite many changes since his childhood, the charm of the Irish people has still remained.
The book is not a tourist guide but it gives you a fair view of Ireland and its people.
Miscellaneous: The book * Round Ireland with a fridge * written by Tony Hawks is an useful companion for an Ireland trip. It tells the true story of a bet that Tony cannot hitch hike around the circumference of Ireland with a fridge within one calender month. On his trip Tony visits many irish places and their unique people. The book is easy to read and gets you laughing out loud.
