This was a great book for some light reading. The setting was charming, and I found the characters to be very likeable. Taylor did a wonderful job creating a picturesque village that is sure to make the reader want to visit Ireland despite knowing that Ballybucklebo isn't a real place and towns aren't like that anymore.
Readers who enjoy series like Jan Karon's Mitford series and James Herriot's books will probably enjoy reading An Irish Country Doctor. It does have a meandering storyline, though, so I would advise people looking for a meaty plot or a lot of depth to look elsewhere.
