It is a small area of land and yet the nine counties of Ireland’s north hold within them a bewildering variety of riches and rewards. It is a complex region of proud and busy cities, of long, empty beaches, of formidable glens and rich farmland, of towering cliffs and yielding hills. This is the land that St Patrick walked and Heaney celebrated.

Ireland’s Beautiful North is an introduction to Ulster, featuring a selection of the
sights and places that go to make this province a place of such constant
fascination, from the awesome geology of the Giant’s Causeway to the waves that break on the soft sands of the Atlantic seaboard, from the murals of Belfast to the churches of Armagh and the ancient remains of Navan Fort, from the Fermanagh and Cavan lakelands to the Glens of Antrim and the Mourne Mountains.

a great coffee table adornment or a gift for an ex-pat relative, Ireland’s Beautiful North captures the beauty and many facets of the nine counties of Ulster

records the wonders of these beautiful counties, and explores the many myths and mysteries that seamlessly merge with history to make Irish counties so unique… peppered with superb images of stunning scenery, thanks to the expert eye of Carsten Krieger … a must-have guide for tourists - but it should also be appreciated by those of us who live here. Those of us who travel regularly through some of the world’s most stunning scenery can often be blinded to its beauty. Sometimes, it takes a different type of insight to open our eyes again so that we can truly appreciate what lies on our doorstep. And that’s what Dominic Kearney has done with this wonderful book
