4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Irish Homes, 19 Nov 2009

This review is from: Romantic Irish Homes (Hardcover)
I liked this book. The photographs are beautiful and the text enlightening. While I admit that my knowledge of Irish history was fairly limited to begin with, I feel that I have expanded my understanding of social and economic change within Ireland over several centuries with Mr. O'Byrne's guidance. I particularly like the later chapters, of the more elegant homes, but it makes a lot of sense to cover the more modest structures in earlier sections, too. Romantic Irish Homes will make a good coffee table book, but one to which I might refer for decorating ideas and furniture resources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 22 Jun 2010

This review is from: Romantic Irish Homes (Hardcover)
A most engaging and beautifully photographed collection of houses complete with quirky contents and furniture and interesting hints about the owners. I thought it was a sumptuous read and the commentary which always takes a back seat in such books was unusually intelligent. A glossy coffee table production but in the top echelon of the category

This review is from: Romantic Irish Homes (Hardcover)
An atmospheric book with beautiful photographs, inspirational, a parable on the difficult art of distressed elegance. Very enjoyable and an insight on the nature of Irishness.
