About the author (2010)

Husband and wife team Christi Daugherty and Jack Jewers have been exploring Ireland together for years. Christi has been writing Frommer's Ireland since 2006, and Jack has been her co-author since 2009. Christi has also contributed to several other Frommer's guides, including MTV Ireland and MTV Europe, and she authored the first edition of Paris Day by Day. Jack, also a filmmaker by trade, has contributed to several travel guidebooks for a variety of publishers over the years. Both Christi and Jack have Ireland in their blood. Jack grew up listening to his great aunt's tales of life in Dublin during the civil war (she once leaned out of a window during a late-night gunfi ght to tell them to keep the noise down—people were trying to sleep), while Christi not long ago discovered the ruins of the castle her family left behind when they fled County Donegal in the 18th century, with the English hot on their tail.
