An Irish Country Doctor from bestselling author Patick Taylor is a charming and engrossing tale that will captivate readers from the very first page??and leave them yearning to visit the Irish countryside of days gone by.
Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there, but already he knows that there is nowhere he would rather live than in the emerald hills and dales of Northern Ireland. The proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree and little else in the way of worldly possessions, Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice.
At least until he meets Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly.
The older physician, whose motto is to never let the patients get the upper hand, has his own way of doing things. At first, Barry can't decide if the pugnacious O'Reilly is the biggest charlatan he has ever met, or the best teacher he could ever hope for. Through O'Reilly Barry soon gets to know all of the village's colorful and endearing residents, including:
A malingering Major and his equally hypochondriacal wife;
An unwed servant girl, who refuses to divulge the father of her upcoming baby;
A slightly daft old couple unable to marry for lack of a roof;
And a host of other eccentric characters who make every day an education for the inexperienced young doctor.
Ballybucklebo is long way from Belfast, and Barry is quick to discover that he still has a lot to learn about the quirks and traditions of country life. But with pluck and compassion and only the slightest touch of blarney, he will find out more about life??and love??than he ever imagined back in medical school.

The book took me right back to ‘All creatures great and small’ but not a vet….a family doctor. I absolutely loved this book. Set in 60’s Ireland it is a sweet read taking you back to a lost time and place. There is humour and sadness …..it’s very like comfort food…..warm and cozy. ( )

Ballybucklebo. Así se llama el remoto pueblo de Irlanda al que llega por azar el joven doctor Barry Laverty. A pesar de sus buenas intenciones, pronto tendrá que reconocer que le queda mucho por aprender. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly, un médico veterano cuyos métodos no son nada ortodoxos, acude al rescate. Más que el oficio, se volcará en enseñarle, sobre todo, a lidiar con los excéntricos vecinos que acuden a su consulta y que hacen de cada día una aventura de final incierto. Patrick Taylor empezó un diario en sus comienzos como médico rural. Las notas que iba esbozando le dieron pie a escribir una novela sobre un doctor joven e inexperto. El éxito de Doctor en Irlanda en Estados Unidos ha sido tal que el autor ha publicado una serie de cuatro novelas protagonizadas por el entrañable Barry Laverty.

Before picking this book up, I read a review that disliked it because it was just way too sweet and corny. It is that but that didn't bother me in the slightly and I found it simply delightful! It reminds me of so many of my favorite British tv series and I was excited to see it is being made into a series soon. I love the quirky characters and the off-the-wall doctor's bedside manner. I will definitely read more in the series - and be on the lookout for it on tv too! ( )

An Irish Country Doctor offers many famous literary quotes with chances to guess the author or book.

It is rowdy and funny with informative medical dialogue and odd happy endings. ( )

Upbeat and enjoyable. It took a couple of chapters to get into this story about a small-town country doctor in Northern Ireland but once I did I couldn’t put it down. As a bonus the audiobook’s narrator added to the charm with his accent and the unique voice he gave to each of the characters. It’s going to be hard finding a new book to listen to on my walks after this one. ( )
