This book describes a variety of Irish country houses, with the emphasis on proprietors offering guest accommodation or public access. In each piece the stories of their families, of their houses and what they offer their visitors are combined with the writer's own response to the places and the landscape. As both 'The Hidden Ireland' and 'The Blue Book' make clear Ireland has many country house owners, with others in towns and cities, who have opened their doors to visitors in different ways, mostly providing bed and breakfast accommodation or self-catering rentals. Mary Leland has written about more than 800 houses and historic buildings over the past 17 years, hearing the narrative of ownership, inheritance and restoration from many people in many places. This selection of some of the most engaging or important properties, including several national heritage sites, provides a valuable reflection of the cultural and architectural aspects of sustained Irish ownership and hospitality.

These days getting away from it all also means escaping the mundane atmosphere of big resorts and cookie-cutter experiences. Whether you are searching for a truly unique getaway in a beautiful corner of the world or looking for inspiration when designing your own home, this book is bursting with stunning ideas and locales. The 40 hotels profiled have only a few rooms and you won't find them in traditional travel guides. The breathtaking photography captures the hotel's character, its architectural features, and the surrounding landscape. There are wilderness retreats such as Pumphouse Point in the middle of a Tasmanian lake and Mediterranean escapes such as Tainaron Blue, a stone tower in the Peloponnesian Islands. There are hidden gems in busy cities-Ottantotto Frienze in Florence, the Trunk House in Tokyo, and Los Angeles's Hotel Covell; edge-of- the-world experiences like Deplar Farm in Iceland and Sheldon Chalet in Alaska; and peaceful desert solitude at Amangiri in Utah and Namibia's Shipwreck Lodge. This volume also features architectural splendors such as the cedar and adobe huts of Punta Caliza in Isla Holbox, Mexico, and Free Spirit Spheres, a group of circular treehouses in a forest on Vancouver Island. A valuable resource for the discriminating traveler, as well as a source book for designers and architects, this collection of one-of-a-kind hotels offers relief to anyone overwhelmed by our busy and crowded world.
