A Handbook to Lisdoonvarna and its Vicinity Book Cover
A Handbook to Lisdoonvarna and its Vicinity by P. D.
With Map and Woodcuts

The Examiner
February 1999

CLASP Press, Price: €12.95

Undoubtedly, this handbook is one of the most charming little volumes I've seen in a very long time. It was first published in 1876 and it has reappeared in print thanks to CLASP, which in recent years has republished several books about the Clare area.

It was written as a guide book for visitors to Lisdoonvarna, once famous for its health spas but now better known for its bachelor festival. The handbook has a marvellous amount of information. Above all, it is the kind of local history publication which every town or village would love to have.
