“Ireland Travel 101” Named Best Guidebook

Back in July we gave Pat Preston’s Ireland Travel 101 our highest praises (read our review), and this month the North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA) has followed suit. Yesterday, they named the “Ireland Expert’s” new book the best guide book of the year… that’s out of more than 500 entries covering a variety of countries and topics.

Pat has stopped by the Irish Fireside several times. You can listen to our interview with her in Episodes 33 & 34, read the 10 Irish Words You Should Know When Traveling Around the Emerald Isle she wrote for us and visit her website and blog at www.IrelandExpert.com.

As for the NATJA Awards, they recognize excellence in travel writing, photojournalism, multimedia platforms, advertising, marketing and public relations for the travel and tourism industry. For more information about the NATJA or a complete list of 2009 award-winners, visit www.natja.org.
