Ireland tourism board question

A couple of questions. I have read posts referring to people getting advice from the Ireland tourism board. I would really like to get a tourist guide and some maps but haven't had luck finding their website. Does anyone have the link to the 'official' gov't tourism site? I did contact one company about tours and now am being inundated with emails wanting me to book our entire time and travels thru them.

On reading thru many of the forum topics I read about a good guidebook to order that was written by a local and you could order it to be mailed to the US at a reasonable price. I failed to bookmark the page and now can't find it. Any suggestions on this or any other good guidebook?

It is operated by Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourist Development Authority.

Thanks for your replies. I did email the discover Ireland link today and got a response back that they will be in touch. I will try the Tourism Ireland site as well.

A really good "guide book" is the DK publishing "Eyewitness" guides. We have been using them for almost 20 years, and the info is usually spot on.

I have little faith in Fáilte Ireland. The guide book is fair but if you believe you can get anything but travel sickness following their touring routes then good luck!! The whole of the island in 9 days?? ye right!
