A beautifully nostalgic look back at JFK’s historic visit to his ancestral home


"This is not the land of my birth, but it is the land for which I hold the greatest affection."

—President John F. Kennedy, Limerick, June 29, 1963


For the first time ever, award-winning journalist Ryan Tubridy tells the fascinating story of the young, iconic President John F. Kennedy’s only visit to Ireland.  The idolized, handsome, and glamorous John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the great-grandson of Irish immigrants and the first and only Irish-Catholic American to be elected President of the United States. He relished his Irish heritage, and in June 1963 he made a memorable four-day trip to his homeland. Five months later, he was assassinated.

In this fully illustrated book, complete with never-before-seen photographs and heartwarming stories, Tubridy reveals the huge effect JFK’s visit had on Ireland, and the affection Kennedy felt for his fellow Irishmen and his Irish heritage. He also portrays how those sentiments were reciprocated by a nation enchanted by the young President, whose people took him into their hearts.

Fascinating and insightful, JFK in Ireland captures with authority and integrity the time that Kennedy described as “the best four days of my life.”
