Other Guide Books

These guide books seem popular but I have never read them so I can not give any feedback on them.
Let's Go Ireland Many people find Let's Go to be a bit large and confusing. However, it is written by students and it sells thousands of copies so I guess some people like it. (Currently out of print so perhaps not)
Eyewitness Ireland Many people like this book because of its detailed pictures. It lets you know what to expect before you get there.
Bed and Breakfast Ireland For the laid back traveler.
Fodor's Ireland Since these guides seem so popular.
