Rick Steves' Europe
IrelandDVD - 2005
Join host Rick Steves on a friendly two hour loop around Ireland in four half-hour "Rick Steves' Europe" TV shows. In historic Dublin, Rick learns about the struggle for independence and has a close-up look at the famous Book of Kells. Traveling south, Rick sees Waterford crystal created and climbs aboard an authentic "famine ship." To the west, Rick finds that the Dingle Peninsula is rich with rolling pastures and rustic pubs. Rick completes his journey in Northern Ireland, where passions over fine whiskey, political pride, and foot-stomping music complete this portrait of a remarkable island. As a bonus, viewers can eavesdrop on Rick's half-hour chat about his travel career with Jim Peck of Milwaukee Public Television.
