Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With episode 14 of his PBS TV series, Travels in Europe With Rick Steves, the peripatetic host launches a second season of "less expensive and more footloose adventures." This time, Rick's annual 3,000-mile journey begins in Ireland, specifically the rugged Dingle Peninsula and the Aran Islands, "where the traditional Irish culture hides out." In addition to such tourist-driven communities as Kerry and Killarney, he travels by horse and buggy, bicycle and foot to a number of picturesque out-of-the-way places. Along the way, Rick offers advice on shaking jet lag, a crash course in pub etiquette, and spends an economical (and tasty) day at a Irish bed-and-breakfast.
