A Testimonial that was e-mailed to us:
"We bought the Guide and it was absolutely wonderful. We travelled around virtually the whole of West Cork, with a bit  of East Cork to start with, and came to rely on the recommendations for pubs, restaurants and somewhere to stay. I think we tried about five or six different hotels and B&B's and all , without exception were excellent in their own way. In every town or village we turned to the Guide before setting off for lunch or to the pub (and it seems like we went to a lot of pubs!) and never once were we disappointed or disagreed with her comments. We found the Guide exceptionally useful, well put together and all round reliable. It was the best money we have invested for a long time"
