    • 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!

      Party New Years Eve in Cork

      Hi everyone! :) I'm Léa from France, and with some friends from other countries in Europe, we are going to Ireland for the coming holidays. We would love to do new years eve in Cork. We'll go to pubs in the evening then night clubs. But then I wonder if there would be some places open until very late (i mean until it's day time again) cause we plan to really party all night. Can you name some places which will be open all night long that night ?

    • 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?
