Ireland: Killarney - A History of Visiting

Ireland: Killarney - A History of Visiting

"Highly Recommended. Killarney has long been considered a place of enchantment. Tourism is an industry in Killarney, with a history of over 250 years; however, this is not so much a travelogue, but, a history of tourism to one of the loveliest areas in the world: a little bit of heaven named Killarney." -EMRO Review
From the diaries of Queen Victoria, the poetry of Lord Alfred Tennyson, and the prose of Lady Chatterton and W.M. Thackery, just a few of the notable names who have visited the legendary town of Killarney, we are guided through over 250 years of history. We discover that landscaped between mountains and lakes lays the physical reminders of a diverse and cultural past. From its humble beginnings to its Romantic Period, from the shadow of the famine days through the War periods, to the popular destination it is today, Killarney is a visitor's dream. Produced by Muckross House. 06/10DE IJSCA 45 min.
