Format: Paperback
While I am not a big fan of short stories, I had to have "Irish Girls About Town". Maeve Binchy and Marian Keyes are two of my favorite authors and what can I say? I couldn't resist. These short stories are full of fun, life, and adventure in which any woman (not just the Irish!) can relate. "Irish Girls About Town" covers a wide range of topics, from PMS, to the simple joys of friendship, finding the perfect someone, heartbreak, and so much more.
Surprisingly, my favorite stories did not come from my favorite authors. Annie Sparrow's "The Unlovable Woman" had me laughing and rolling my eyes as at a woman who can't see the love of her life directly in front of her. "Moving" by Collette Caddle is another personal favorite. Out of 16 stories, only two seemed lacking. Julie Parson's "My Cup Runneth Over" was a bit darker and tried to pack too much into too small a space. "Your Place or Mine" suffered from the same. Other then that, this is a wonderful book. If you are fans of Binchy, Kelly, or Keyes; do not pass it up. I didn't and because of that, I have discovered some wonderful writers and got some wonderful stories in the process!

Never read anything by Maeve Binchy that didn't like. I'm sorry she's gone.
These stories are a good mix of her writing.

What brilliant idea to have Ireland's most gifted female writers put together in a gem of a book! Irish Girls About Town is every chick lit enthusiast's dream come true. My favorite stories are the ones from Marian Keyes, Maeve Binchy and Cathy Kelly. However, newcomer Marisa Mackle's "Girls' Weekend" is the best one out of the bunch. I was so impressed with her sharp wit that I purchased her debut novel, Mr. Right for the Night. This book is a true gem and I couldn't recommend it enough!

You won't be able to put this book down. Stories by Cathy Kelly, Mary Ryan, Marian Keyes and Marisa Mackle shine through.
Also Annie Sparrow's story mad me laugh out loud. This is a wonderful collection from the cream of female Irish writers. A night in with Irish Girls About Town was better than any mad party night I had this Christmas and the stories are keeping me laughing well into the new year. Go on, buy it. I promise you won't regret it!!!

Irish Girls About Town has to be one of the best books that I have ever read. I was visiting my grandma one day and I got bored so she handed it to me, telling me that Maeve Binchy was one of her favorite authors, and that I would probably like her too. From the moment I heard the title of the book, I was interested, but reluctant to read it since I don't usually enjoy short stories. The first few stories were a little bit different, but once I got to Thelma, Louise, and the Lurve Gods, I could never put the book down. That was absolutely one of the most romantic stories I have ever read. The sexual humor was also enticing. All in all, I finished the book in a day and a half, wishing I could read it over and over and over until I got bored with it. WHAT A GREAT BOOK!

I loved this book! Mostly I bought it because I love Marian Keyes (trust me, her story in this one DOES NOT do her justice) but I really like this book for many reasons.
The stories are not chock full of [adult relations], strip teases, or other various corny, READ: laughable scenes. I think this is a breath of much needed fresh air that definitely sets this "romance" anthology apart from any of the ones written by "American" women writers that I have attempted to read. These stories just flat out rely on humor, wit, and charm, not CHEAPNESS to carry the plots. Very impressive I think.
The stories were short. Which is great when you are in a reading environment that gets interrupted a lot (like, say you are supposed to be doing your job for example).
The stories are cute and very well written. Ok, I wasn't impressed with some of them, but the majority are very well written, quick reads that are cute, sassy, and totally fun. Don't worry about actually falling asleep on the job with this book. This might sound stupid, but the style of these Irish women writers makes their stories flow well.
Pick up this book as your next romance anthology read, or any light read for that matter, and PLEASE skip the Kasey Michaels and the Lori Foster anthologies!

I went into this book looking for new offerings from my favorite authors, Maeve Binchy, Marian Keyes and Cathy Kelly ---- but, I was really surprised and excited to find charming tales from a few new authors.
I love the Irish sense of humor, voice and charm. I love everything about it --- the tone and absolute honesty that these female authors have. They cover the full aspect of woman's issues --- love, money, hardship, family, etc..... you got it. Everything you can think of.
I love this short story collections and think that "Irish Girls About Town" is certainly one of the best and a good I would recommend to everyone!
Cheers!
