Guided Tour of Ireland's Hidden Gems September 2021 & 2022 - Covid update - International visitors welcome from July 19th 2021 - Click here for entry requirements, tour dates & availability
The 2016 edition of my Ireland Travel Guide is available for purchase on Amazon.com in Kindle format. Don't worry if you haven’t got a Kindle reader as you will be prompted to download a Free Kindle App which will enable you to read it on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone, anytime and anywhere you like. Completely revised and updated, it is designed to simplify planning your Trip to Ireland. For example, when it comes to choosing accommodation, did you know that there are over 100,000 different bed options available daily in Ireland. So, unless you fancy trawling through a maze of discounted hotel websites, why not take the easy route and trust my advice gathered over 8 years of independent travel and extensive personal research and discover 10 Posh Places to stay for Peanuts, 10 Rooms with a Sea View or 10 Pubs with Snugs and Firesides and much more besides. The lists are limited to the Top 10 in each category to keep everyone (including me) on their toes but more importantly to ensure that, you the visitor and our guest, not only get the most bang for your buck, but also the best possible experience of Ireland....
Similarly, we want you to enjoy every meal or food / drink experience you have in Ireland. Visitors, quite rightly assume that we have great food in Ireland and yes we do, but you have to know where to find it and it can be expensive, very expensive it certainly doesn't have to be! As anyone who follows my Facebook Page will know, I love and appreciate good food and I am a great champion of those restaurants, listed in my Ireland Travel Guide, that are making a serious and consistent effort at producing top class food at affordable prices in the following sample listings, eg 10 Gastro Pub Grubs, 10 Luscious Lunches or 10 Top Notch Noshes etc. This year I have added vegetarian / vegan options by request and Downton Abbey style afternoon teas.
There are over 100 different sightseeing options in this guide, but if that is not enough for you, Things To Do 2016 and Places to See 2016 contain a whole host of other Hidden Gems for you that you might like to explore.
So, get reading, get inspired and start hatching a plan to visit Ireland. We and hope to see you all over here in 2016 when we will be celebrating 100 years of independence! And remember if you have any special requests re planning your trip or you would like a Tailor Made Trip itinerary please feel free to email me and I will see what I can do for you, all the best Susan
Testimonials re Susan's Ireland Travel Guide
"Having driven darn near every road from Shannon to Westport on 12 visits to Irelands West, I found your guide very helpful.Their were alot of information I have missed ! I think your price is very fair. What I have learned over the years from most 'travel guides' is that they are outdated at best, and very middle of the road. No off the beaten path information. I liked your guide very much. I will re-read your guide for more interesting stops for my next visit in 2015 ! Nice job"

"I recently completed a trip of a lifetime to a country which had been on my bucket list to visit for as long as I can remember. Prior to travelling to Ireland, I happened upon a fantastic website called Ireland's Hidden Gems. Susan Byron's tips and stories about her beloved country were inspiring and a wonderful resource for me as I planned my trip. Because there is so much to do and see in Ireland, I found Susan's Top 10 categories a fabulous and easy way to make sure I didn't miss anything important while I was there and I am delighted to see so many of those highlights listed in Susan's new e-Book, I love it! And it will most most definitely be my companion when I return to Ireland."

"Susan's new eBook is really wonderful! Wish I had this when I was planning my trip. Happy to say that I did quite a number of her suggestions although particularly wish I had her restaurant list since we did not have great dining experiences left to our own choosing."
Carrie Fernstein, New York City
"Thank you for an excellent website and Ireland travel guide! You have made planning for a holiday in Ireland with my two teenage daughters a pure pleasure and so much easier. I am really looking forward to seeing your beautiful country and trying out your recommendations."
