Discover Northern Ireland

I cannot recall how long I've had a copy of this indispensable guide-book.

For me it encapsulates the very essence of Northern Ireland and the best places to visit.

Discover Northern Ireland was first published in 1976 by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

It was revised in 1977. A third edition was published in 1981. Has it been re-issued since then?

It most certainly ought to be.

The book was written by Ernest Sandford.

The media has described it thus:
'A wonderful guidebook, an eminently readable guidebook ... it should be considered as a school textbook for local information ... in its detail and general comprehensiveness it is unique.'
This, to my mind, is the definitive guide to Northern Ireland.

First published in March, 2010.

I have the "Northern Ireland Holiday Guide" for 1959, 1962 and 1963, each 150 pages. Photographs evoking happy memories of youth. H.S.

Thanks for recommending this book. It makes for good reading while I'm home in NI over Christmas. Also makes a great gift for those who grew up here but left long ago.
