Discover the very best of Ireland with our travel guide

The Emer­ald Isle is a per­fect place to visit by car, as Ireland’s roads are mod­ern, well-maintained and scenic, and the Irish are famous for their hos­pi­tal­ity. Ireland by Car: Emerald Isle will give you all you need to find the best of Ireland.

We give you the inside track on this beautiful land — one island, two countries, four provinces — all covered in detail in our latest eBook. It includes a comprehensive set of more than 1,000 GPS coordinates for all the covered sites, hotels, restaurants and attractions.

Imagine being able to drive with confidence to all of the top sites in Ireland — Newgrange, Giant’s Causeway, the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, the Titanic Exhibition, Connor’s Pass in the Dingle Peninsula and the Old Jameson Distillery (among many other locations) — without ever getting lost!

Ireland by Car includes thoroughly researched information about out-of-the-way destination restaurants and exceptional sites. Every significant destination in Ireland is included: Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Galway, Killarney, Kilkenny, the Burren, Dingle Peninsula, the Ring of Beara, the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher, to name just a few (and of course the surrounding countryside, the real heart of Ireland!). Just choose your destination, select the location on your GPS or smartphone using our coordinates, and off you go! We provide complete information to these locations and many more.

Extensive Insider Information

Ireland by Car includes extensive insider information rarely found in other travel guides on attractions, lodging, restaurants, hiking, bicycling, golfing and shopping.

Just choose your destination based on our insider tips, select the location on your GPS or smartphone using the coordinates we provide, and off you go!

We provide complete information about these locations and many more. Hundreds of pages devoted to Dublin, the wild Atlantic coast, the Ring of Kerry, Newgrange, Galway, Cork, Belfast, Northern Ireland and the spectacular countryside in between.

This is the most comprehensive guide to Ireland – full coverage of both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Written for the intrepid traveler, our book includes hundreds of special destinations not covered in the better-known guidebooks, many well known to (and favorites of) the locals.

GPS Coordinates

Only Ireland by Car provides GPS coordinates to guide you from one destination to another. Full instructions are provided so you can navigate confidently using your smartphone (or a Garmin or TomTom GPS device) to over 1,000 destinations in Ireland!

For Garmin and TomTom GPS users, simply download the coordinate file from our website using the activation code provided in the book, then transfer the coordinates onto your GPS device using your Windows PC or Mac computer.

Then, after arriving in Ireland, turn on the GPS device in your rental car, let it “spool up” (it takes a few minutes for the device to locate and lock onto satellites on a different continent), select your destination from the list of Favorites and away you go!

For smartphone users, we now provide the option of using the Google Maps app to access all of our GPS coordinates on your smartphone. Further information about this world-exclusive feature is provided here.

Updated in May 2016, Ireland by Car now comes with complete instructions for using your smartphone to navigate to more than 1000 destinations in Ireland.
