      Bus tours from Dublin & other Q's (Photography questions)

      Ireland Jul 14, 2014 at 6:40 PM

      We are basing ourselves in Dublin and we don't drive. Can someone who has used a bus tour company lately (from Dublin) recommend 1 or 2 bus companies that A) do a really good tour of Cork/Blarney/Rock of Cashel (spending a decent amount of time at each so I can spend some time taking decent scenic photos) and B) do a really good overnight tour to Cliffs of Moher/Burren/Poulnabrone Domen and Kylemore/Galway/Cong without staying in a hostel? I'm an older lady traveling with a 77 year old mother and I don't think she'd like the 'openness' of a hostel. We also want to travel economically so a private tour is out. Also, what time of day (or weather) is good for photographing Monasterboice to get some really good 'atmospheric' shots (will be there in early September). Final Q: I have been digging deep online for any bus company (or even private company!) to give us a private tour of Monasterboice and Mellifont (these are the important photography locations I need to shoot) for under 250euros. Has anyone done one of these tours or know of who I can chat with to get prices from? I don't know who even to contact at the tourism office.

    • Car Rentals in Ireland. Confused About What's Included and What is Not

      Ireland Jul 1, 2014 at 11:50 AM

      I am planning a visit to Ireland and I have read many of the posts on this site and other travel sites and find that about five or six car rental companies are recommended. Can someone tell me what their experience has been with the following sites or your rental experience?

      Avis.ie
      Hertz.ie
      Dan-Dooley.ie
      Easytourireland.com (sells Hertz)
      ie.sixt.com
      irishcarrentals.ie

      Several have a fully inclusive rate promoted but in some instances they also have a deductible. Confusing.

      Is there truly a fully inclusive rate with no surprises at the counter?

      How to get from Dublin to Dingle

      Dingle Jun 6, 2013 at 11:36 PM

      Hello everyone! I'm trying to make my way to Dingle in the best time possible. My plane doesn't arrive in Dublin until 13:20, so I know that I'm missing any plane I might catch to Kerry Airport, but is there any way to fly to Cork airport from Dublin and then take a bus (or train) to Dingle/Tralee? Or if not, is a bus or train faster when leaving from Dublin airport? I realize neither of those options are as fast as a plane--but I DO want to get there sooner rather than later. Thank you so much for anyone taking the time to answer this, I appreciate it a lot!

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.

      Means of transport - Dublin to Killarney

      Killarney Jan 1, 2012 at 2:06 PM

      Im flying from Edinburgh to Dublin tomorrow and, instead of staying in the big city first and travelling the countryside later on, Ive decided to do it the other way around this time, so my plan is to go from the Dublin airport to Killarney. I imagine the best way to get there would be by train, right? But in the Dublin airport website it said that there is no railway connection there, so I should take a bus to one of the train stations. Which one should I go to? My flight arrives at about 21hrs, can I still get a train that night to Killarney or would it be easier to just book a night at a hostel in Dublin and travel on the following morning?

      I would also like to then go on to Doolin, to see the Cliffs of Mohre. Can I get there by train directly from Killarney or would it be better to be "stationed" in Galway (which Im planning to visit anyway) and make daily trips out?

      Thank you very very much in advance for any answers! The VT forum has already been a HUGE help planning my travel so far and as soon as Im somewhere more stable, Ill start writing reviews and "giving back"! Thanks again :)

      It may sound cliché, but having some Irish ancestry and hearing this song as a kid made it sound wonderful. Now, I have the opportunity to do so with my family. I am wondering if much is open over the long Christmas weekend or if we would be sufficiently satisfied with the amenities at a nice hotel, local walks and Christmas mass.

      Please let me know if 3-4 days worthwhile over Christmas. Due to flight times and days that I can take off, we may do a couple of days in Dublin as well with a rental car and stop by Blarney Castle.

      Since I've been home I could just kick myself for not going ahead and getting one right then. I can't remember the name of the shop. If anyone knows where I can find them or the name of the store would be great...it would be so appreciated!! Hopefully I can order one.
