ABSTRACT

Between 1845 and 1923, more than 569 travel narratives and tourist guides were published addressing Ireland. Most, in this period, were written in the years immediately after the Great Famine of 1846–50, in which, some estimate, more than three million people died of disease or starvation, or emigrated. The fact that, in the decade immediately after the famine, ten travel books or guides were published per year, nearly one every month, indicates that an attempt to culturally order the catastrophe that had happened in Ireland was taking place. Further, people were touring the country in greater numbers than they ever had — and ever would again, until the 1970s.1 There are several ways to explain such numbers. For example, it is possible that the famine had very little direct effect on the number of tourists visiting the country, since in the decade previous to it there were almost as many tourists visiting as there were after it. Tourism would march on as an industry oblivious to human catastrophes, simply because the English middle classes were growing. It is also possible to blame the railways for the increase in numbers, for they would only come into operation in any significant capacity after the Famine. In one sense, it is impossible to make any generalizations until the mass of materials, all 569 travelogues, have been carefully analysed along with the context that enabled them. More... »
