I bought this book as a souvenir and it was a very hard read because I am used to American English, an are not at all familiar with Irish words and folklore. Since the stories are a compilation from many other authors and sources, they each stand alone and are only interconnected thematically. I've read reviews that point to other books and better representations of folk and fairy tales so unless this is your only opportunity to purchase the content, I suggest doing more research before buying.

De feminist in mij vond dit vreselijk, maar de liefhebber van mythen en sagen vond het uitermate interessant.

It was a very nice book to read, with so many different tales about different spirits and people.

This book has no right to be as charming and lovely as it is. As the title suggests, it is a collection of traditional Irish Stories, that are thoroughly readable and heartfelt.I first purchased this book in Dublin, a few years ago, on a trip, as a suggestion from a tourguide in the Leprauchaun Museum. The tour still stands as a huge highlight in my visit, and the tour guide, Annie, was wonderfull. A small museum, it is innocent, sweet and works one's imagination. pure and lovely :)

If you are into Irish folklores, this is a book of short stories of these. Enjoyed the stories - some are the frequently told folklores. Each story has a twist of fate and lessons we can learn from. A nice book to pick up and read to pass the time.

I really enjoyed the stories in this and I'm glad I bought it. For someone who wasn't introduced to Irish folk tales this is the perfect introductory.
