3 stars out of 5
I thought that this was a good reference book for Dublin. It captured and celebrated some of Dublin’s past. I can definitely see a lot of work went into the photographs shown.
Pro: This book contains a lot of great pictures of different tourist attractions. It provides background information for the photos and gives you some history about Dublin. The back of the book has a short timeline from 8000 B.C. to 1998 to reference to. It also has a map on the last page of the places that were mentioned. If you want a quick read about Dublin, this might be the book for you.
Con: This book seemed to me to be more of a quick reference book. Meaning, if you’re looking for a novel or something to quench your history buff’s thirst this may not be for you.
