My Celtic Soul, Our Year in the West of Ireland, is a travel story about an Irish-American couple who realize their dream of returning to the land of their ancestors.

Pat and Mike O'Brien, take on the unlikely task of running a bed and breakfast in the West of Ireland, for a year. Having given up all else, this is the means by which they are able to explore their ancient homeland and their Celtic roots.

In the tradition of bestsellers A Year In Provence by Peter Mayle and Under The Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes, My Celtic Soul is anecdotal, humorous and upbeat.

This is the book that the five and a half million tourists who visit Ireland each year would like to take with them. It will also appeal to the fifty million Americans claiming Irish ancestry, who yearn to make a connection between America and the old sod.
