Amazing scenery. Makes us want to go back. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because nothing from Northern Ireland is on this DVD. Obviously they were restricted to fly in these areas. It's too bad as the Giant's Causeway would have been amazing to see from the air.

This is a video taken from a helicopter over Ireland with great discriptions of the places below - lovely music and great watching on a large screen TV.

Loved it. Beautiful scenery, well presented. It kept you informed as to where you were. We are going to Ireland in May for a visit, and this was a huge help

A little dissapointing Aug. 1 2009
By Bernard Vink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
As I also own the three Over America series Movies in BD, so I was looking forward to this one. But Over Ireland while the pictures are stunning and the narative is good, The speed in which the scenery flashes by is too quick. this results in frequent backtracking and pausing just to get a good view of the magnificient sights. If only there was a way to slow the movie down in many places this would have been really great.

Magnificent Over Ireland Aug. 22 2009
By Janet W. Gould - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first time we saw this video was on a friend's computer. He had the Blue Ray version and it was just awesome. The colors were the truest colors I've ever seen. I bought the High Def. version and it's just as beautiful. Having been to Ireland several times, it brought back many wonderful memories, and we saw many of the places we had been on the dvd. I very highly recommend it!!

Review of Over Ireland July 7 2010
By phil kirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Scenery - fantastic, what can I say.

Music - At times far too loud and I much prefer natural sounds like
water, seagulls etc... Music is a choice of the director and
not always the choice of the viewer!! Would have been better
without. You have the option to watch the dvd without the
commentary but not to hear the commentary without the music.

Commentary - Ok but in parts this was totally drowned out by the
music !!!!! Which was a big, big mistake. I bought this
as an educational tool for foreign students, however
I had trouble making out what was being said so they
would have no chance !! Sorry but the quality of the
music and commentary was a big disappointment to me.
I hope the makers read this and take on board my
constructive criticism. Thank you.

Stunning video June 24 2009
By L. Goff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This looks as good or better than when I saw this in HD on PBS. Maybe even better than the three times I actually visited Ireland. ;-)

I would have liked to see more significant sites, but it is only 60 minutes long.

Disappointed Nov. 29 2012
By Whistle Britches - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I am not sure what I was expecting, but I was disappointed overall. The aerial photography was good.....that which you could see without a blur. I sense there was a need to cram too much into too short a time frame.

I have been to Ireland several times and actually flew over parts in a private plane. I had a much better view than what this video presented as the pilot was so high, many things were indistinguishable. Ergo, many of the ruins and buildings were not captured in their true size. Add to this, there was little or no dialogue about many of the sights.

I don't like to be critical of people's endeavors, but neither do I like spending money on something I did not enjoy. I ended up trying the video a 2nd time in bed. On low volume, I went sounded to sleep listening to the "New Age" music.
