Is This the Right Book for Me?

What's the difference between this Ireland book and Rick's Best of Ireland guidebook?

Rick Steves Ireland, the complete guide, offers more coverage of more destinations in a mostly black-and-white format, and is updated annually.

The shorter Rick Steves Best of Ireland guidebook focuses on Ireland's top destinations and sights, is in full color, and is updated every other year.

Both books are packed with hand-picked recommendations and Rick's travel advice and tips for saving time, money, and hassle.

Should I get either of the Snapshot guides for Ireland in addition to the Ireland guidebook?

No, because the two Snapshot guides for Ireland are simply excerpted chapters taken directly from the complete Rick Steves Ireland guidebook.
