Is This the Right Book for Me?

Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to Rick's complete Ireland guidebook?

Nope! Our Snapshot guides are simply excerpted chapters from our full-length guidebooks. Snapshot: Northern Ireland covers the exact same topics as the Northern Ireland chapters of the complete Rick Steves Ireland guidebook — the same hotels, same restaurants, same sightseeing information, same everything.

Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to Rick's Best of Ireland guidebook?

That depends on how deeply you want to dive into the region. Rick Steves Best of Ireland includes lightly condensed coverage of our favorite stops in Northern Ireland — enough for a quick trip. If you'd like more comprehensive coverage of the region, the Snapshot guide is worthwhile.
