    • Very short time

      Dublin May 23, 2015 at 9:01 AM

      My girlfriend and I are landing in Dublin for a connection flight this summer, there is about 11 hours between the flights during daytime. We are way to impatient to stay at the airport for the entire time, we want to explore the city a little bit and maybe get a bite to eat, what can you guya reccomend we do with limited time in mind?

      Thanks in advance

      Kilmainham Gaol

      Dublin May 23, 2015 at 12:50 AM

      Dear Unknown.

      My family and I are in Dublin from the 19. of juni to the 23. of june. Unfortunately much too little time.
      ButI have read, that the left wing and the museum of Kilmainham Gaol can be closed during the summer, because of renovation. Does anyone know, if it will be in the periode, where we are visiting the city?
      I also read, that the Riverdance Show is coming to Dublin on the date, we are leaving. I am very sad about that. But I would like to know if there are any possibilities to see some Riverdance anyhow?

      Thank you in advance

    • Gap of Dunloe

      Ireland May 5, 2015 at 8:58 AM

      I was wondering if it's possible to drive the Gap of Dunloe by car. Following Google maps, you can travel from Beaufort to Moll's Gap, but when I read the different comments on the web, I am not sure anymore. Anyone who took this road recently?

      A Brief Visit to County Louth?

      County Louth May 10, 2015 at 12:26 AM

      Traveling as a single female, I'm wondering if County Louth is a safe place to stay. Thus far, I see no reason why it wouldn't be.
      Q: Should I stay 1 or 2 days?
      Q: Is there anything to do other than see castles (which sounds wonderful, anyway)?
      Q: I'm planning on starting my trip in Dublin and heading to Louth & Galway. Can I see the sites in Louth on foot, or will I need to drive?
      Many thanks!
      Laura

      I am 71 years old, am NOT going to drive abroad (I am from the USA) any longer, but would love to spend a couple of days in Kinsale. I have heard it is so beautiful. Is there a bus I could take there from Shannon or Dublin? Where/how would I arrange that?

    • SIM card for iPhone 5s

      Ireland May 7, 2015 at 12:45 PM

      Visitor from US; I am in Blackrock and have been trying to purchase a SIM card for my iPhone 5s. I have been to 3 Tesco stores in the area and a Carphone warehouse. None have had a nano SIM card. I would like data plus ability to make local calls in Ireland so that I can make reservations. This would be for 3 weeks.
      Any advice?? Thank you.

      I'm heading to Achill Island next weekend...loved reading all of your posts and seeing your photos! Spent a week in a thatched roof cottage in Donegal last fall and am renting a similar cottage on the island. I'm expecting to have bad hair all week and will pack rain gear. Flying into Shannon and will pick up groceries on the way. Any tips or advice for a September trip?

      Midges on Achill

      by RhineRoll Online Now Apr 27, 2004 at 8:44 AM

      One rarely gets warnings/complaints about Midges in Ireland, but at least in areas with blanket bog (like Achill Island), they must be around. Is my guess correct, that the problem is not as bad as in the Scottish Highlands? I'll be on Achill in July and should there be a warm and calm evening, it'd be great to be able to sit outside the cottage without having to fear Scottish-style air raids. I'm a bit careful after my last year's experience from South Uist. People told me there weren't any midges on the Outer Hebrides, and if there had been (strictly theroetically speaking...), then it'd be always windy enough to keep them from flying. WELL, we had a hot week with temperatures well above 25 Celsius and NO wind...flat out calm... and GUESS WHO was VISITING US??? GRRRRRR HOW I HATE THOSE MIDGES!!!!
