I have read the forums on travel in and around Dublin, as well as gone to the individual websites to try to get a grasp of the best in public transport options. I have to say that I am so overwhelmed so perhaps I can obtain suggestions on the best option based on my travel. Will be arriving in Dublin on Sept. 14th and staying one week. I don't 'do' rental car, am travelling alone, staying in Parnell Square area, would like to make a day trip to Belfast, North Ireland(bus or train?), and side trips to Howth and perhaps a few other places. my hotel is across a hop on,hop off stop so figured I would purchase a ticket on day of arrival to get a feel for the different areas. Since I am going to be relying on public transport for the week, what would be the most convenient option? I am not so much concerned with the least expensive option but would rather be able to have several options available where I am not purchasing a separate ticket for this trip, that transfer, etc. Is there a ticket that allows u to have the choice of bus, local tram, etc. all in one price? (such as the oyster card in London).
sorry if these appears to be quite a simpleton question but I just can't figure out the difference in all the options and I have read them ad nauseum.
thank you in advance.
We are shortly to travel to Dublin and will arrive in the centre soon after 9.00am. The hotel doesn't allow check-in until 3pm and has no facilities for leaving luggage. Anyone know anywhere in the Grafton Street area where luggage can be left for a few hours at reasonable cost?
I will be in Dublin in Sept. and one of my favorite past times is shopping for all things tea and coffee. Can any tea and coffee connoisseurs point me into the right direction to find lovely and charming tea shops-u know the kind...the big jars or boxes of loose teas on the shelves where you can sniff and ask all kinds of questions to find the ones that suit your tastes. teas and coffees are one of my favorite things to bring back from any trip to sip and enjoy long after the trip is over. I do find 'yelp dublin' helpful with reviews, etc. One place I am interested in is Palais de Thes located on Wicklow street. I know it is a French co. that has shops in other cities worldwide. Interested in opinions on great places to sip a cuppa perhaps not so touristy such as Bewley's.
thank you in advance
What do you know about "An Evening of Fun, Food, and Folklore?" Worth the price? And how easy will it be to get a cab back to our hotel at the end of the show?
Another question, if I may. Should we do the Wicklow Mountain or Newgrange day tour? We only have time for one.
I want to hike this section on my own. I am having trouble finding lodging that I can be sure is relatively close to the walking trail. I don't want to go with a tour company because they want to charge me more for going solo adding single supplements. I am looking for budget lodging in Oughterard, Leenane, Westport, Maam Cross,lough Inaugh Valley. Any help would be appreciated.
I need to get from Dublin Airport to Lough Derg on Friday 31 May 2013. My plane arrives at 9:40am and unless it arrives early as they sometimes do, I won't make the 9:50 Bus To Ballyshannon. Are there any other public transportation options available? Any private tours heading that way? Thank you! If all else fails I'll have to hire a car.
Will it be hard to find decent accomodation in the west coast area if you book as you go? We're travelling there in august and worry if we book now we'll not be able to go to places we might discover on the way, or if we like a place and would stay longer, we'd be out of luck if we booked ahead.
Hello! I am excited for my next vacation - leaving on May 23rd for Ireland. We will be there for 11 days -we are taking the "Best of Ireland" which is an organized Tour. that is a first for me! But I am looking for packing suggestions. I checked the extended weather forecast and it looks like it is cold (considering i am from Florida :> ) What type of coats are used at this time of the year-- is it like a trench coat, sweater, a heavier coat..? Any suggestions about packing is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
