      Activities in Athlone

      Athlone Apr 20, 2014 at 1:04 AM

      Hi. I am heading to Athlone with my children for a few days next month. I am looking for somewhere that I can take them that is suitable for their different ages. They are 16, 14 and 9. I know there are the historic sites ant the cruises but I am wondering is there anything else that would interest them? Also I don't drive so it has to be easy to get to.

      Day trips from Dublin

      Ireland Mar 27, 2014 at 1:28 PM

      I am in Dublin for 5 nights (4 days). I am limited to public transportation. I intend to do bus tours from Dublin to the following: Cork/Blarney, Galway overnight tour (includes Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Cong, Kylemore Abbey), taxi tour to Monasterboice/Mellifont Abbey (a.m.) & walking tour of Dublin (p.m). This is a photo assignment for me, and I'm tasked with photographing iconic scenery of Ireland. I decided to go with this list and had to weed out places like Kilkenny, Kerry, Limerick, and Waterford because there is simply not enough time. Was this the right selection of spots?

    • Mr & Mrs O'Neill

      Kealkill Nov 2, 2013 at 1:19 AM

      Is there any memory to Mr Dan and Mrs Jo O'Neill left in Kealkill? They owned the pub in the 60's and I lived with them when I was a child of 7 for about 7 months. Went back to see them in 1989 - Dan was so old and frail, Jo was a bit younger. Nellie still lived with them. I know they are now all deceased, of course. The pub was called The Brown Pub in 1989 and I don't think that's what it was called in the 60's. I want to come back to Ireland (from Australia of course) and Kealkill will be the most important stop for me. I lived all over the world as a child, but Ireland is my spiritual home, I am sure of that.

      We will be staying at the golf resort for a week, playing three days and exploring Cork, Kinsale, Cobh on the other days. One reason we picked the resort was the close proximity to the rail station, however we thought we'd be able to walk from the hotel to the rail station. Does anyone know if this is possible? Does the hotel have a shuttle, when does it run? If we spend the day in Cork will we be able to get back in the evening after dinner? or will we need a car after all?

      Hello everybody,

      I have the choice between staying one night in Cork or in Limerick.

      What is important to us:

      budget accomodation
      good nightlife
      good choice of happy hours
      lower price level

      Should we stay in Limerick or Cork for our last night?
      We have a rental car and need to be at Shannon airport by 3 pm, so I thought in case we stay at Cork we need to leave by noon?

      I am spending a week in Ireland (for the first time)& staying 3 nights in Dublin & 4 nights in Cork. I am afraid this is a bad choice (Cork) as we only have a rental car 1 day & I understand Cork is a big city. Would we better served to stay in a smaller village like Killarney, Kenmare, or Kinsale? I want the 'real Irish experience' and am afraid I will miss it if I stay in big cities all week. Also, I'm afraid it will be expensive to travel by train or bus to all the lovely country destinations from Cork. We are on a big budget. Please help! Where should I stay?
