      Hi I am planning to visit Shannon tomorrow and I was wondering how easy is it to travel around without a car. Especially to the Cliffs of Moher?

    • How to divide time between Killarney and Doolin

      County Kerry Nov 10, 2015 at 12:11 PM

      Coming with family group of 5 the end of next May coming and going from Dublin with 8 nights in Ireland. Have learned of the Killarney Bikefest happening June 3rd-6th (know about the June 1st holiday also), so am thinking we should go immediately to Killarney or wherever we decide to stay in the area on the day we arrive (May 28th at 10:00am from direct 8 hour flight). Here are my questions:

      1) Are there one way train tickets going to Killarney from Dublin? (I know I can't catch the train directly at airport).
      2) Are the autos large enough for 5 adults plus luggage quite hard to find for rental? My search seems to have found them for rent from Killarney but not Dublin, which is puzzling.
      3) How long will it take to drive from the Dublin airport to Killarney on a Saturday? Is that manageable after a long flight? (FYI we are in our mid-50's, so not used to all nighters anymore, but hope to sleep on the plane).
      4). Is it better to stay in Killarney to see Ring of Kerry and Killarney Nat'l Park or stay in Kenmare or further around the ring? And how much would that add to the drive from Dublin? Note we have three 20-something "kids" with us so we want to have a mix of Irish immersion and some fun for them as well on the trip. It is actually a graduation present for two of them, but they love the nature, history, and exploring culture.
      5) We have been intrigued by the idea of staying in a castle and it looks like Ballyseede might be not far off the track between the ROK area and Doolin/Corofin. Do you consider this a worthwhile side trip?
      6) Assuming we have 6 nights to spend outside of Dublin, how would you advise dividing the time between the area around Killarney NP (we love nature and plan to hike) and the area near Doolin or Corofin to give us time to do the Doolin Cliff walk, tour some of the antiquities and nature in the Burren? This include thoughts about that castle stay I mentioned as one night in the middle.

      Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions please?

      Thanks so much!

    • Inishowen vs. Antrim Coast

      by mbarnett Online Now Mar 6, 2007 at 9:50 PM

      I've have limited days in Ireland and I've got to make a choice between driving the Inishowen 100 or going to Giant's Causeway and driving a portion of the Antrim Coast. If you've been to both, which would you choose as most scenic?

    • 3 Bedroom house to rent

      by motherof03 Online Now Sep 4, 2006 at 2:46 PM


      My husband and I are looking to move back to Ireland and Buncrana/Muff in particular. Does anyone know of any 3+ bedroom houses to let on a long term basis until we find somewhere to buy? Ideally unfurnished, and with a garden and parking. We have 3 children and so need to be close to schools etc.

      Living in Buncrana

      by Matt-100 Online Now Oct 18, 2004 at 2:26 PM

      Hi there! I' maybe moving to Buncrana in the future to work there as a Dutch-speaking in a callcenter. Now I still haven many many questions... First and foremost: What is the renting price? And how do most single people rent something? Maybe share an appartent? Or is it possible to rent a single room in a house? And off course it would be handy if I have some prices so that I know what the cost of living is over there... Also for a beer in the pub, cause it's very easy to compare beerprices. About the town: Is there alot of action? Many youngsters and places to hang out? And also very important : Are they used to having foreingers around and are they willing to comunicate with them? I'm also a little bit affraid that I will not understand the language. Is it true that many people overthere speak Gaelic? And is it possible to understand the English that is spoken overthere? Off course other tips and interesting things to know are more than welcome! Thanks ! Greez, Matt
