5.0 out of 5 stars Sawday's never disappoints! A gem!, 2 Feb 2007

If you want to find a Special place to stay, ask Alastair Sawday.

Unlike other ratings for places to stay, Sawday's really live up to what they say. You won't find an abundance of places in your chosen locale, but the few that have been unearthed are real gems.

In the Ireland book, you can stay in a cosy cottage, a sumptuous castle or even a lighthouse! Also, he doesn't just list places that cost the earth; over 85 places do B&B for two at 70 or less per night. This book cannot be recommended enough.

Definitely a worthwhile purchase if you mean to stay in Ireland.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ulster, Munster, Leinster, Connacht/Connaught, 24 April 2009

This book is certainly full of special places to stay.
Unfortunately, however, the indexing and layout of the book is perplexing (even for an Irish person who is familiar with the lay of the land).
The editor would be wise to note that it would be so much easier (for everyone) if the counties were laid out in alphabetical order instead of by province (which incidentally are currently in incorrect order).
Also, the indexing is sparse and clearly doesn't match the number of wonderful houses featured in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Find superb Irish B&B/Guest Houses - no worries, 11 Oct 2006
By 
Dave (Bristol, UK) - See all my reviews
If you are prepared to spend, say, 40-50 per night on B&B then this book is an excellent resource for finding superb accommodation. The book covers a wider price range but we reckon most fall into this category (allow for annual inflation if you use an old copy). All 10 places we stayed at during 2005 & 2006 met our expectations from reading Sawday so we are comfortable with the basic objectivity of the reports in the book. Indeed, the experience of staying in many of these places formed some of the 'highpoints' of our holidays, rather than being just nice places to be overnight; of course, the places themselves deserve the credit for this, not Sawday but use this book and find them with confidence!
