A visit to Ireland would be the trip of a lifetime. Travelers get to explore everything from the urban pleasures of Dublin to the scenic beauty of a road trip on the Wild Atlantic Way and the picturesque towns of the Lakelands. That's a lot of traveling to do, but the good news is that a NY Travel photographer has already done all the hard work.
Most people are a bit hard-pressed to hop on board a jetliner to cross the Atlantic. Those interested in seeing the country can now skip the hassle of traveling on an inter-continental flight and then tramping around 26 counties. Just sit back and thumb through a book of pictures that has all the memories and delights of an Irish holiday.
In fact, the book's buyers get to experience the holiday's best parts without the irksome things that need to be faced in person. The Cliffs of Moher in County Clare are among the country's most-visited tourist attractions. This also makes it a tourist trap that forces visitors to pay through the nose and survive parking woes, the gift shops and hordes of tour bus groups.
Anyone thumbing through an art book gets to bypass all the commercial kitsch and simply enjoy the cliffs towering hundreds of feet above the Atlantic. Similarly, a visitor may be having a wonderful time wallowing in the warmth and comfort of heady Irish brews in the pubs of Dublin. Under these circumstances, a two-hour train trip from Dublin to see the medieval capital of Kilkenny hardly seems the wise thing to do.
The trip to the picturesque location is very much possible for someone in their own home who just needs to turn a page. A blink of an eye and the flip of a page is all that's needed to get from Dublin to Kilkenny. There's no train fare either.
Consider the famed Blarney Castle in County Cork. Legend has it that anyone who kisses the Blarney Stone is blessed with eloquence, otherwise known as the gift of the gab. Well, find out if the same blessing comes with a kiss of an NY travel photographer's pictures of the Blarney Stone. Each one speaks a thousand words, so they are indeed gabby.
