      Travelling solo

      Dublin Oct 2, 2015 at 12:06 PM

      I'm spending 5 days in Dublin from the 12 th of October until the 17th. I'm staying at the castle hotel. I have some tons of research on how to stay away from tourist traps and plan on seeing the city and outlying villages on my own. I would like to know how easy it is to make ones way around on the dart as well as walking in the city.. I won't have data to access google maps while on the streets.. ( crappy phone company ) I hate being stupid. Haha! Also what kind of reception should i expect in the pubs as a single woman.. I love beer, not that cider stuff that I heard women are supposed to drink.. Thank you for any information in advance .. Sandy

    • Seven days in Ireland

      Ireland Sep 29, 2015 at 10:27 AM

      I have planned a trip to Ireland and I am looking for some of your expert guidance! As usual there is just too much to see and too little time. Please don't worry about adding something you found interesting. Some of our best experiences travelling were from taking advice and doing things we had no intention of doing.
      Day 1. Land at Dublin Airport. By the time we get to our B&B it will be early afternoon with no sleep the night before so I don't anticipate doing anything other than going out for a walk. Our B&B is in Upper Rathmines.
      Day 2. A day in Dublin on the Hop on Hop off bus. Hope to see the Book of Kells.
      Day 3. Drive to New Ross to see the famine ship. Then check in at Slieverue B&B. Hopefully there will be time to visit the Waterford crystal factory.
      Day 4. I wanted to do the Rock of Cahir and Cashel Castle and the Titanic museum at Cobh and the Blarney castle. And that is after cutting back! lol It is obviously not going to happen. What do I eliminate? We are staying near Blarney.
      Day 5. Another dilemma. Do we do the Ring of Kerry or the Dingle peninsula? A friend from Ireland says we MUST do the Ring of Kerry. Is there time to do one of these and Muckross house as well? Beausoleil said she really enjoyed it.
      Day 6. Drive to Limerick, stopping at Adare to sightsee. Spend the evening at Bunratty castle.
      Day 7. Drive back to Dublin via Kilkenny.

      Any advice is greatly appreciated. We are Canadians so driving distances don't bother us. Also we lived in Australia for a few years so driving on the "other" side and sheep on the road don't bother us. It will be great not having to deal with kangaroos!
      Thank you! Dianne

    • Where to stay for 3 Weeks?

      Dublin Sep 22, 2015 at 6:50 AM

      Hy there, I'm staying 3 weeks in Febr. '16 in Dublin for a Language School.
      I'm too old for a Guestfamily but I think it can be nice at a B&B where I can have
      connections to the owners - but not that much as in a family ;)
      Do you have some ideas? Thanks a lot! Sabine

    • Ireland & Scotland on a budget 10 days not driving

      Ireland Sep 13, 2015 at 12:06 AM

      I'm traveling to Ireland and Scotland in a short amount of time on a budget and MUST see both countries without driving. I've done my research and yes, it would be best to stay longer and explore both places deeper but it isn't an option. :( I enjoy seeing sights, castles, architecture, & history. I am limited physically so walking long distances or rocky terrain is out and tours are too restricted and expensive. I also do not desire to spend my time seeing these two destinations and through a plane, train, ferry or bus window. I want to see and do as much as possible while there! Any itinerary suggestions for how best to travel, spend my 10 days and money, cheap but safe places to stay (I am middle aged so no youth hostels), and must do/see things?

      Hi, my friend and I plan to travel from Kilkenny to Dingle. We will NOT be renting a car. We will stay 1 night in Kilkenny and next morning go to Rock of Cashel and then onto Dingle. I am hoping there is a bus that goes to Rock of Cashel from Kilkenny. However, I don't know if we should return to Kilkenny to take a train to Tralee, or maybe Killarney? And then bus into Dingle from either of these two cities? Or, is there a bus from Cashel into Dingle?

      Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

      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!!

      County Kilkenny May 24, 2006 at 1:00 PM

      Hi everyone,
      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
