      We are experienced walkers, though not young! Which is the best walking trail for 4 days of walking? Dingle, Kerry or Beara Way in June, 2015? And my husband is a huge fan of Irish music that we'd like to hear some nights.

    • Dublin and....

      Dublin Feb 19, 2015 at 10:41 AM

      I will spend 5 days in Ireland at the end of June. It's my first trip to Ireland.
      I intend to stay in Dublin for 2 days and then spend the other 3 days exploring. Considering that I have decided that I won't rent a car, I am wondering what part of Ireland I should visit. Is it possible, considering that I would use trains and buses, to visit Galway, the Cliffs of Moher and around in 3 days? I am hesitating between this area and the Ring of Kerry. I believe I cannot do both even partly, because of time constraints (3 days).

      Your help will be very much appreciated.

      Where to visit for 6 days in Ireland

      Ireland Feb 9, 2015 at 7:10 PM

      Hello my friends,

      My wife and I are coming to your beautiful country at the end of March. We heard the weather is great (just joking). We can fly into either Cork, Shannon or Dublin (Ryanair). We must fly out of Dublin.

      So, if we fly into Cork, rent a car and travel south to Kinsale for the night.

      Day 2 drive on N71 towards Killarney

      Day 3 drive either the Kerry Ring or Dingle Ring (which one?)

      Day 4 drive toward Dublin (Rock of Cashel)

      Day 5 in Dublin

      Day 6 in Dublin

      Day 7 fly out early.

      How does that sound? Any suggestions, we assume that alot of hotels, etc. maybe closed in Kinsale, Killarney, etc.

      Thanks in advance!

      Dublin Feb 4, 2015 at 4:29 AM

      Hi, I am organising a trip to Dublin for a friends 30th at the end of February, going Fri to Sun. I have looked into the Guiness tour, the tour bus and a ghost walk but wondered if there was anything else anyone could suggest? My friend has always wanted to go here and want to make it special, a few of the attractions I.e the Irish experience don't run at this time of the year and others are for groups of min 8 and there's only 4 of us.
      Also where is the best nightclub to go to that has mixed music on a Saturday night? We are staying on Upper Gardiner Street.

      daytrip to Glendalough

      Dublin Feb 10, 2015 at 6:25 AM

      Background - I am spending a few days in Dublin during march with my parents for a belated birthday trip for them. I have been to Dublin several times but they have never been. I was thinking of day trips we could do that would let them see something of the Irish countryside and preferably something that I have never done on my previous trips so Glendalough sprang to mind.

      Reading other posts it doesn't seem like there is much choice in public transport?? but my concern with an organised tour is booking it and then finding its pouring with rain that day...

      How much time would it take on average to see Glendalough? And if taking a tour do they give you time to take it in, take (lots in my case) photos etc or are you just rushed about? Would we be able to turn up for a tour on the day or must they be booked in advance?

      Any advice appreciated! thanks

      QUICK TOUR - THEN WANT TO EXTEND TRIP A FEW DAYS - NEED SUGGESTIONS

      Ireland Feb 5, 2015 at 10:31 AM

      Hi all

      I have the opportunity to get a very good deal for 5 days in Ireland. Well, really 4 since we arrive Dublin Day 2.

      spend that day in Dublin, then on to County Cork - see Blarney Castle, Woolen Mills

      Day 4 - do Ring of Kerry

      Day 5 on way to Dublin do Rock of Cashel

      Since this is such a quick tour, we decided if we go we'd like to extend our trip a few days. But we really are up in the air as to what to do & how to go about it.

      First time for both my husband & I.

      We like history, wandering interesting & unique areas. beautiful scenery. Honestly, we've both always loved Irish music & the country looks so beautiful -- but aren't really up on what are great things to do there.

      Kilkenny to Dublin by rail - day trip

      Kilkenny Mar 8, 2007 at 9:21 AM

      Hi -we're looking at booking a package from the U.S. that'll be going to Killarney (4 nights) and Kilkenny (3 nights) but not signing up for any of the additional day tours in favor of doing all of our sightseeing on our own. Hate the tours - they herd you through too much. in too short a time, with too many people!

      Anyway, we'll only have two full days in Kilkenny and I figure we'd take one to explore the town, and I'd like to spend the second day in Dublin. I'd like to go by rail as it's probably fastest. Has anyone done this, is it difficult to figure out, and will we have enough time to hit the high spots of Dublin? I figure it may take and hour and a half or so to get there? Am looking at first train out - probably last train back. Appreciate any advice/insight you could throw my way!!

      I will spent the whole summer in Kilkenny, from June to September.
      I just wanted to ask a few questions about living there.

      Has anybody some tips to find a studio flat or a sharing for this period?
      Do you know some places where I could stay during my first days there (hotel or B&B. What are the average prices of them?).

      I will work in the Industrial & Business Park (Purcellsinch). Is it far from the center or not? Are there any bus services which lead to this area?

      I will welcome any comment or tip which could help me to spend a good summer!
      Thanks a lot!

      Country house accommodation

      County Kilkenny Aug 16, 2005 at 7:59 AM

      We are headed to Cork next week but I would like to stop part way to spend one night (my birthday!) in the Kilkenny area. I would like to stay in a country house type place or perhaps a farmhouse, preferably someplace that does really nice meals (or isn't too far from a good restaurant). Any ideas? I have found a few places but they are either really expensive (we would prefer not to spend more than EUR50 each) or they require a minimum 2 nights.

      Many thanks
