The photography nows looks dated (black and white, bit grainy) and I doubt there will be any new editions in order to remedy that but this book is still a well-written and researched guide to many of Ireland's lesser known castles.
I lived next to one of the featured castles for years and whilst the locals knew some fragments of it's history, or even better had a wild tale that was associated with it, it was not until I bought this book that I had something of the castle's 'official' history. I have since visited a few of the others and am delighted to report that a recent renewal of interest in Irish heritage means that many of the castles included have been gently restored and opened to the public.

Beautiful photos. I am hoping to make a self drive "castles tour" of Ireland and this is the best resource for that trip that I have found.
