It includes the best times to visit each area, a breakdown of the different seasons and the species you are likely to find, and lists rare birds seen at each site in the past.

...informed and informative text and excellent maps... Anyone taking a trip to Ireland would do very well to find a little room in the case for this book. - Mark Golley, Birding World, Volume 21 Number 1, January 2008.
