Movie Reviews

Better than a visit to Ireland?
Dr. Beaker | San Jose, CA | 06/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video, on one DVD, is similar in quality and subject matter to the several other excellent 'Visions of Europe' series of DVDs. The differences seem to be that the narrator talks more, and there are more street-level shots of quaint downtown areas and more ground level shots of the countryside. But it all works. This is a striking collection of views of Ireland, with appropriate music.

The narrator stresses the long-time "historical sadness" of Ireland, how it has boomed economically since peace has set in, and the beauty and varied history of Ireland. The video also shows a lot of new construction of buildings occurring in the larger cities.

The video has lots of views of picturesque small towns, farms and country homes, harbors, bays, rivers, old castles (some in good condition, some not), stone fences, stone monuments, stone huts, stone bridges, lighthouses, beaches, very rugged shortlines, very rugged islands, big cities and their wonderful old downtown streets, colleges, churches, cathdedrals, and ancient mounds and burial sites.

Altogether just as nice as a trip to Ireland, without the expense and trouble of a trip, and the likely chance of bad weather. My favorite scenes are: (1) Gardens at Mount Stewart (2) Sunbeams on the coast at Galway Bay (3) Island of Skelling Michael, and (4) Cliffs of Moher."

"Barely acceptable addition to this series with a distorted sense of geography. Several highlights ignored. Some pretty pictures, however. Select instead "Over Ireland" which is a five-star tour with excellent music and narration."

"The shots taken from a helicopter or plane are really pretty. This was a good follow up to my visit to Ireland. Shows a lot of things I did not get to see in person. This is not a "travelog" and does not have a lot facts, information and voice over. No travel advice. But, it is visually beautiful and shows all areas of Ireland. I also got the disk on England and the one for Scotland."
Ireland - Great

"Excellent video. Background music not so load you can't hear the commentary. Makes us home-sick."
