Great for learning pronunciation. Pretty good back section.
Great for absolute beginners!

If you are just starting out on your quest to learn Irish, this is an excellent tool. Small and easily fits into purse/pocket for on the go reference... this is strictly a beginner's dictionary as it is very limited in overall entries, but PROVIDES PRONUNCIATION FOR ALL WORDS AND PHRASES! This "micro"-tiny reference book has only 1,400 words (though, I think this number reflects only the dictionary entries, not the additional words within the phrases introduced in the 2nd half of the book), but is perfect for the entry level learner still struggling with how to make heads or tails out of vowel and consonant combinations that can initially be perplexing. Phrases cover common dialogue for travel, sightseeing, shopping, recreational activities, etc. I would definitely buy it used, though... I purchased mine for only a couple of dollars on-line and that makes this even more of a gem...
Not really a functional dictionary

This really is more of a phrasebook than a dictionary. It does have some dictionary-type entries, but they're minimal. The phrasebook part may be useful if you need to brush up on some basic traveling phrases, but really, there are better resources out there for those as well. I wouldn't waste the money.
