This book is a little out of sequence with Mike's previous 2 "Postcards" books, insofar as it is a prequel, set in time before the other books. In no way does this detract from the other books if you have read them, it compliments them wonderfully, or indeed as a great read by itself. I heartily recommend this book to all who are fortunate enough to come across it. It is a great book. Funny and at the same time gentle, yet you can marvel at how little Mike knew about the Country he set off to visit by himself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 13 Sept. 2013
By Kimberly Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Okay, I bought this book because I have this ridiculous love for the "idea" of Ireland and I needed to take my mind off my own personal woes -which, I believed would be practically impossible. From the very beginning I was hooked and an hour later I found myself laughing out loud in bed. His account of each day he spent there sharing both the good and the bad was so well written it was as if he was sitting across the table with a beer (Guinness) talking to you with just the right amount of ambient mirth (in a bar) . I know it is unfair but, I only gave it 4 stars because it was supposed to entertain me for a couple of nights and I finished in one.
4.0 out of 5 stars Humour and romance in wild Ireland .... 17 Jun. 2015
By penname - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Postcards from Ireland gives the reader a personal take on an Irish holiday. Michael Harling takes off from his urban life in America, unprepared for a hiking holiday in the wilds of Ireland.. His appraisals of the contrasts between life in America and Ireland are light and witty. His adventures provide the reader with a good insight into the contrasts between the false "touristy" Ireland and the genuine experience. The descriptions of the people and situations are pithy and insightful. Travelers both actual and armchair will find much to smile about in this story.
There is a romance to this book which is appealing and insightful.
4.0 out of 5 stars A different view of Eire. 2 Oct. 2014
By Maryland rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was a light and often comical story. I could not agree with Mr. Harlings opinion of the people, the B&Bs, and life in general in Ireland. I've been there twice and have enjoyed it immensely both times. We did B& Bs mostly the first trip and the second time down to Killarney to a time share (with a thatched roof,) The second 09 trip was very rainy and not the soft type. My only complaints are no pub music (Irish) and the rental agent didn't explain things such as water heater going off at ten and if the fuse popped the refrigerator which is over the washer and dryer combo leaked every thing it had.
5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read 13 Sept. 2016

I enjoyed this book very much. I am fulfilling a longtime dream of mine, to visit Ireland next summer. This story took me on a virtual trip through Ireland. I visited the airports, the towns, the pubs, the hotels, the B & Bs, the scenery and the people. I'm now more than ready to go. Thank you Michael Harling!
2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat entertaining but worth $0.99 I paid 12 Aug. 2016
By John R Odell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Entertaining because I had been to all the places the author visited but I found him a little annoying; the kind of clueless American that knows so little about the culture of the country they visit. Plus it seemed he was just bragging about meeting a younger woman. Also I don't get cigar smokers; stay out of my pubs.
