      Industrial school or Abbey?

      Cork Mar 14, 2015 at 4:33 PM

      My grandmother was born about 1887 in Cork. She stayed in either an industrial school or orphanage in Cork for several years, raised by nuns. I am looking for this school or orphanage/abbey? Does anyone know of such a place in Cork? My email is kathysibley@sbcglobal.net.

    • Hertz or Enterprise Drop Off Location close to Powerscourt

      Dublin Mar 24, 2015 at 7:20 AM

      Hello from Colorado. We will be arriving at Shannon Airport and hope to rent a car there for a few nights in the Dingle Peninsula. We will then drive to the Powerscourt Hotel, Enniskerry. At that point we will need to find a drop off location as close to the hotel as possible. We'd like to avoid driving in Dublin. It looks like Enterprise has a drop off location in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown. We might also consider Hertz. Have tried working with the hotel concierge, who has been helpful, but need some specific information. How long a drive would it be from car drop off to hotel? What would taxi fare be? Best route from Dingle to Powerscourt, spending one night to see the Rock of Cashel? Thanks for your suggestions.

    • Hotel prices - where to stay?

      Dublin Mar 17, 2015 at 12:27 PM

      Hello! I have made let's say a thorough research to find a hotel in Dublin centre. I was really surprised when I discovered that the prices are really HIGH!!! (when compared to other comparable cities in size).

      I am wondering where to stay in Dublin Centre and I'd like to get recommandations for a hotel in the range of 70-100 euros per night. I'll be there for 2 (full) days at the end of June and would like to be in the middle of everything in order to save on transportation time. Thanks for your help.

    • 5 Days in Ireland

      Ireland Mar 12, 2015 at 4:50 PM

      Hello, my friends and I will be spending 5 days in Ireland in mid May. We have managed to narrow down what we want to do to 4 major attractions and would like to know if its doable in the 5 days we have available. This is our tentative itinerary so far:

      Day 1: Spend entire day in Dublin
      Day 2: Drive to Galway and see the Cliffs of Moher. spend night in Galway
      Day 3: Drive to Killarney and tour the Ring of Kerry
      Day 4: Return to dublin, spend day in the city
      Day 5: Tour Giants Causeway

      Is it feasible to do this in 5 days? Or are we crazy thinking this is doable? We haven't decided yet if we will be renting a car and doing it on our own, or using guided tours that take care of the transportation for us.

      restaurant recommendations

      Dublin Mar 16, 2015 at 9:11 AM

      I'm travelling to Dublin with my parents next week and looking for recommendations for places to eat. I know there are a ton of reviews on here but its a lot to trawl through and many won't suit my dads tastes.

      We are arriving probably around 6pm to our accomodation (near Jervis Centre) so will be looking to go out and eat pretty soon after our arrival and it would be good to have some ideas at least for that first night as we won't want to spend ages looking around for somewhere. My dad is quite fussy with food, very much a meat and two veg kind of guy so somewhere that does traditional pub grub or carvery style would be ideal. I have been to O'Neills on a previous visit and enjoyed it but not sure if it is even still there or not.

      any recommendations appreciated

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?

      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!!

      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!

      Manu.

      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
