Product Description:

Ireland boasts a landscape of stunning coastlines and awe-inspiring islands. With some of the most dangerous coastal waters in the world, however, such breathtaking scenery comes at a price. Lighthouses have played a significant part in the history of this country, which is so heavily dependent on the sea for its livelihood.

`Irish Lighthouses' is a beautifully illustrated and insightful tour of over 30 magnificent lights, built over the last two centuries to protect ships from the perilous coastline.

From the Back Cover:

Ireland, a land best known for Celtic music, rolling green hills, and welcoming people, has a seafaring side that is equally enchanting. With almost 2,000 miles of coastline, the sea has beckoned many Irish countrymen. Irish sailors have traveled from their island home in search of wealth and adventure. Since the fifth century, Irish lighthouses have been guiding these seafarers home.This lavishly illustrated and lively book is a tour of thirty-six beautiful and distinctive Irish lighthouses. These technically efficient structures are described in detail, including the history for each light and descriptions of the surrounding areas.This guide contains: location and geography of the land where each beacon stands, historical anecdotes and accounts of adventures at sea, directions to each light, breathtaking color photographs.Irish Lighthouses is an excellent memento of Ireland's lighthouse legacy, for visitors and lighthouse aficionados alike. (8 1/2 x 10 3/4, 320 pages, color photos, map)
