    • Galway emergency holiday apartment/room

      Galway Dec 19, 2013 at 11:28 AM

      Hi, I have a very big problem here; me and my boyfriend had planned to spend the holidays together after 2 months apart (I had to move to England for study reasons), but his new housemate does not want me in their house (with very short notice). I have found a place to stay the first few days, but I am desperate to find a place in the city centre from the 26th of December to the 8th of January. It would be the best Christmas present for us. Anyone knows of a cheap comfy place that could be rented for those days? I hope Santa hears me, we have been very good all year round...

      Letterfrack and Connemara in February

      Letterfrack Jan 6, 2013 at 1:17 AM

      I plan to visit Letterfrack and Connemara National Park for a few days in the end of February. When I am there I would like to do some hikes and I wonder how easy it is to find good hiking trails walking out of Letterfrack.

      So far I have found out that Diamond Hill is a good hike to do from Letterfrack, but then I don’t know. Are there any other good hikes starting in Letterfrack?

      Kylemore Abbey is situated a few kilometers from Letterfrack. Is there a trail between Letterfrack and Kylemore Abbey?

      One day it would be nice to walk along the coast, but then it must at a place I can reach by bus. Maybe the Sky Road out of Clifden. Any suggestions?

      Hello everyone

      I have been offered a job in Galway and it would be 2000euros a month.
      Is this enough to live on? How much is a nice flat per month? I've looked online and they seem to cost a bomb.
      Is the city busy.....?

      Night bus Galway - Dublin airport

      I'm seeking alternatives to go back from Galway to Dublin airport at early morning. So I discovered www.citylink.ie and www.gobus.ie. Do you you have experiences with these bus operators? Are they reliable? And will it be necessary to reserve a seat in advance? Do you know, wether they've got onboard-toilets (Regarding to www.gobus.ie this operator have, but I do not know it about Citylink).

      Only 3 hrs to visit the island?

      Inishmore Apr 12, 2011 at 11:59 PM

      Regarding aranislandferries.com/times_... there are ferries to Inishmore from Ros a'Mhil at 1pm. The last return ferry will be at 5pm. Regarding to my information the sailing time will be 45 minutes...

      So do you think, that this short time on the island suffice to get an impression and to visit the major sights by rented bycicle? I realize, that it will probably be a very compendious tour, but unfortunately my time is very limited and I'd like to visit parts of Connemara (I'm thinking about Kylemore Abbey and a quick look at the Twelve Bens) ante meridien...

      Or should I even forego the Aran islands and make a more detailed Connemara-tour?

      Myself and a few friends are going to be on a Guided Tour of Ireland next week and will be spending the night in Galway on Good Friday. I just found out that ALL Pubs and Clubs are required to be closed on Good Friday. The tour operators must have forgotten to mention this when we booked :-)
      Any recommendations as to what to do on this night??
      Someone said that the Hotel bars are the only ones allowed to be open?? In the USA the hotel bars are consistently boring. Is the same true in Galway?? Am i allowed to go to another hotel bar if one is known to be better than the others - or am i restricted to only my hotel bar?

      Thank you in advance. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    • Getting between Salthill and Galway City Center?

      Galway Apr 7, 2011 at 2:01 PM

      I'm thinking about staying in the Salthill area rather than the city center, as it looks like a wonderful part of town.

      How easy is it to get to the city center from there? I'll have a car but would rather not drive around the city, so would be walking (during daylight hours), taking a bus or getting a cab.

      I'm basing myself in Galway for 3 days, with one day reserved for exploring the city, one day reserved for driving around Connemara, and the third day for a trip to the Aran Islands, so I don't know that I really *need* to be in the city center for convenience.

      How long a walk is it, do you think? I walk at a good clip. Is there a frequent bus that goes between the two?

      Thanks!

    • Bikes in Galway

      My girlfriend and I are staying in a B&B about 4 kilometers from Galway city in April. We were thinking of hiring bicycles so that we could park our car at the B&B and ride the bikes to and from town. Does anyone know if that's a good idea? Is it generally safe for cyclists on the roads/sidewalks inside and just outside the city? Is it safe to lock a bike around the city? Is it safe to ride at night?

      Thanks for any advice or answers to my multiple questions!

      Which city is more worth seeing, Galway or Limerick? Unfortunately my time is limited and I can only afford one day in one of this cities.
