Planning your holiday for 2015?

Don’t forget that Clare County Library has a range of travel guides available to borrow. Travel guides covering destinations from Korea and Bangkok to Istanbul and London are available from publishers Lonely Planet, Dorling Kindersley, Time Out, APA Publications, Berlitz, Fodor and National Geographic. If you prefer to travel light, there are ebooks to download on destinations such as Melbourne, Naples and Dubai.

To get yourself in the mood for your trip or if you are an armchair traveller, Clare County Library has compiled two travel related book promotions with reading lists. One is a compilation of some of the best of non-fiction travel writings entitled Around the World in 22 Books. Featuring books from authors such as Jan Morris, Freya Stark and Bill Bryson these books will transport you down the Ganges and the Congo, into the Arabian sands and by train across America.

A book promotion entitled Novel Destinations features novels set in destinations popular with Irish holidaymakers. These novels will transport you from the wild landscapes of Western Australia via the Piazza of Venice and the rural French village of Lansquenet to the streets of New York.
