Exactly as it says

"This DVD is exactly what it says it is - magnificent scenery. They don't bother telling you what hotel to stay in, what the people are like in this town or that, or what year this church was built. Rather, it is almost a music video of Ireland. Set to wonderful music, this DVD gives you a look at many of the most beautiful places to be seen in Ireland. At a time when travel has become more difficult, or you want to relive a visit, this can be very welcome indeed."
Magnificent Ireland at its Best

"I've ordered several of the Ireland DVDs and I found this is the one I want to watch over and over again. I have even purchased one for a friend. It is correct that there is no narration, but the scenic areas covered are listed on the back of the DVD and if you follow along as you watch, you can keep track of what they're showing, and there is an occasional placename on the screen. The music is good. If you are into the beautiful scenery of Ireland and not a lot of tourist hype, I think you will like this a lot. It is my favorite, and the only one I recommend currently. It will inspire you to dream of a trip to Ireland. It's certainly worth the current price!"
Not so Magnificent

"This DVD is not so "magnificent" as indicated by some of the reviews found here. Some of the scenes are nice, but the editing and transfer leave much to be desired. The music also, is not a good fit in my opinion. If you are looking for an exceptional musical travelogue of Ireland, I would highly recommend "Portrait of Ireland" featuring James Galway, Enya and the Chieftains. It has excellent cinematography with great music to scenery match."
Beautiful Scenery Poorly Transfered From VHS to DVD

"I ordered this DVD due to the good reviews. Well, that was a mistake. This DVD is a sloppy transfer from the VHS version which was filmed in the 1990's. The scenery of course is spectacular, but there are zigs, zags, white lines, jumpy camera scenes and a few skips mostly during the 2nd half of the show. Having just returned from Ireland, I popped in one of our own video's and it looks more professional and better edited than this DVD. Kultur Video's turn out to be poor quality.
