Buy all 3 and save! A TASTE OF IRELAND Ireland + Dublin + World Food Ireland Also: Inside Ireland: Ireland + Best of Dublin + Jaywalking with the Irish The very mention of Ireland never illicits a ho-hum response. Locals and visitors alike are equally passionate about a vivacious country that is so thoroughly drenched in the arts, history and heartbreakingly beautiful landscape. Lonely Planet's latest guide to Ireland is out and ready to wax lyrical. Here's a suggested itinerary from it: This is a coastal loop to be savoured, giving you a real feel for Ireland's savage and spectacular coastline, as well as the heart of its long history. Start your loop just north of Dublin at the Casino at Marino, not a place to cash your chips but a19th-century Italianate trompe l'oeil mansion. Continue north to the mind-blowing Neolithic necropolis at Bru Na Boinne, built before the Great Pyramids were even a twinkle in the Pharaoh's eye. Continue north to Mellifont Abbey, Ireland's first Cistercian abbey, and on to the pretty village of Carlingford on the lough with its narrow streets and 16th-century buildings. Work your way through the Mourne Mountains - hiking your way to the top of Slieve Donard if you wish - to the Ards Peninsula and Strangford Lough. Take a Black Taxi tour in Belfast before moving northwest to the unmissable rock formation and World Heritage site, Giant's Causeway, best enjoyed at sunset. Continue around the stunning coastline of north Donegal, stopping at some of Ireland's finest beaches, such as Killyhoey Beach, and passing through the beautiful Glenveagh National Park. Head south through the monastic ruins of Glencolumbcille and down into lively Sligo, where you should climb up to the Stone-Age passage grave, Carrowkeel , built on a ley line and with panoramic views of Lough Arrow. For the west coast as far as Cork, follow the 'Into the West' route. From Cork, head east to Fota Wildlife Park for a picnic and then on to Dungarvan's King John's Castle, with its unusual 12th-century shell. Drive around the picturesque Hook Peninsula, stopping for ice cream in the seaside town of Dunmore East. Spot the unusual varieties of geese in the famous Wexford Wildfowl Reserve before heading up to County Wicklow and Wicklow Mountains National Park . Now settle into a well-deserved pint of Guinness at Mulligan's , back in Dublin. From its cosmopolitan cities filled with old-fashioned blarney, to its lush, lilting landscapes and wild craggy coastlines, Ireland's charming contrasts exceed all expectations. Whether you're here for the craic in a quiet country pub or out to explore a land of legends, let this inspirational guide connect you with the green heart of the Emerald Isle. UNCOVER THE MYTHS - from the Giant's Causeway to the Blarney Stone, get behind the fables EXPLORE MORE with recommended Itineraries to get you off the beaten track GET BACK TO YOUR ROOTS - hints and tips on researching the family tree DELVE INTO THE PAST with in-depth coverage of the country's turbulent history SLEEP SOUNDLY - charming country houses, swanky city pads and cosy B&Bs - discerning recommendations for every budget
