    Is This the Right Book for Me?

    Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to the full-size Rick Steves Ireland guidebook?

    Nope! Our Snapshot guides offer no additional information beyond what's in the larger guidebooks — they're simply excerpted chapters from our full-size guidebooks. Snapshot: Northern Ireland covers the exact same topics as the Northern Ireland chapters of Rick Steves Ireland — the same hotels, same restaurants, same sightseeing information, same everything. (Our Snapshot guides are, however, updated less frequently than our full-size guidebooks.)
