Published by the Irish Tourist Association as part of the See Ireland First Series, Galway and Mayo is a small but extremely pretty publication. Included in the 37 pages are 10 pages of photographs of some of the most picturesque and beautiful sites of Galway and Mayo. The text itself covers many of the areas which would be of interest to tourists visiting the region. Beginning in Galway City and covering aspects of the city's history and places to visit the university the book moves out to the surrounding areas such as Slathill and Barna and beyond covering areas such as Cong, the Aran Islands, Connemara, Clifden, Roundstone, Leenane, Loughrea and Kilmaduagh. The second part of the book deals with Mayo, again covering areas like Westport, Croagh Patrick, Achill Island, Belmullet, Foxford and Castlebar. There are useful tips regarding transportation, areas to fish and particular sights to see. Despite this being a small publication is it a very attractive one covering a very picturesque part of Ireland.
