Please can anyone advise the best car hire value in the Lake Garda area
Hi, I will be moving to Dublin for work in September 2013. Likely to be there for at least 2 years. My office will be located at Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2. Any good suggestions for reasonable accommodation with easy access to public transport and amenities like supermarkets, nightlife, etc? Safety of course is very much a priority also. Much appreciated!

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 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.
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 will be in London in August and would like to go to Dublin for 2-3 nights. I am deciding which mode of transport to go by. Please advise?
We are coming to Ireland next month for a hiking tour through the Wicklow Mtns. Before the hiking begins we have 3 days "free". We were thinking of staying in Dun Laoghaire those days - easy access to Dublin without the costly lodging and close enough to Wicklow for the hiking tour.

Hi. We (2 Adults & 3 Kids) were hoping to spend 2 weeks in June in this Camping Resort.
Can anyone tell me if their entertainment programme runs in June? On their website it says high season, which opens on 20th June. We'll be gone by then.
Also, we hope to visit Port Adventura & Barcelona, while there. Is public transport an option?

I will be in Dublin on Saturday the 2nd of March and it would be very nice to meet up with other VT-members. Would anyone like to meet for a coffee, food or a beer? I will be travelling from Letterfrack or Clifden that day so I can meet in the late afternoon or in the evening.
I have just posted this question in the meeting calendar, but I guess that like me many people are not looking at the meeting calendar very often, so I thought it best to post the question in the forum as well.
Hi, I will be traveling to Dublin the weekend of St. Patrick's Day. I am wondering if there are any special festivities that I should not miss? What should I see on this weekend?

We are going to Dublin around Easter and I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how the easiest way (except for by taxi) to get to the Smithfield area of Dublin from the airport? We will be arriving on 29th March around 4.30pm and I know that it's a bank holiday so I am aware that there may be a reduced service on the busses/shuttles. Also we are going to the Fairyhouse Racecourse on 1st April and from what I can find it seems like we have to get a train from Dublin Connely station to the M3 Parkway and back but I can't book the tickets online is that correct or am I doing something wrong? Does anyone have any experience as to whether the trains and the following shuttle busses will be rammed on Irish Grand National day? Thanks
We will be in Dublin over the Christmas holiday. Anything special we should not miss?
Where can I submit the reviews of a restaurant which is mot listed on the platform??
My friend and I are coming to Dublin in June and staying for a week or two, depending on how much money we have. Any suggestions on what to do would be great.

My wife and I are thinking of visiting Dublin in February. I know the weather is not ideal.....but we're hoping there would still be fun things to do. Are we expecting too much or can we have an enjoyable visit dispite the time of year???
Folks, despite being a Dubliner I rarely get into the city at night or at the weekend (living way over out in Fingal!). I have some Japanese colleagues over who want to see some 'real' Irish Trad music on Saturday night. I found a pub called O'Neills in Capel Street and it looks good. Anyone any comments? I also contacted Brazen Head, but they don't do Trad on Saturday. Would rather avoid one of the 'Tourist' pubs that do the whole Riverdance/Oirish spin. City centre a necessitity Any suggestions greatly appreciated..
Hi, I'll be in Dublin from 02 Dec until 16 Dec on my own and looking for accomodation in city centre or D2, D4, D6.

We've been to Dublin before but will have some free time while visiting a friend. Have you any favourite hidden gems, interesting must-sees? I wouldn't mind hearing, either, about your favourite restaurants in the downtown area.
