The party shipped their own carriage to Ireland and back, reaching Dublin on 15 June and departing from Belfast on 3 July. The account dwells on Dublin and its environs, notably Lucan, Leixlip, Bray, Wicklow, Powerscourt and Enniskerry, before turning north to Newry, Coleraine, Derry, the Giant’s Causeway, Belfast and places in between. The volume contains one plate of the salmon leap and the mill at Coleraine. The title page features a quotation from Virgil: ‘Haec olim meminisse juvabit’.
