      Personal WiFi / Mifi Hotspot (information)

      Ireland Mar 22, 2014 at 12:50 AM

      I am not sure how much the car hire folk are charging for mifi these days or the cost of internet hook up in places that charge for the service but Tesco mobile are selling the E5220 @ €50 + €15 for 15GB/month data so €65 sets you up with your own WiFi and a device which you can stick on ebay when yo get back home.

      tescomobile.ie/broadbandandi...

      Side note, using this in N.I. would be Roaming rates

      Hi, My daughter is arriving from Holyhead to Dublin next week and I have no idea if I can drive onto the ferry port if I am not actually using the ferry myself. Can someone please tell me if I can get close to the terminal building so I can pick her up. She has just had an operation and doesnt need more stress not knowing where I will be.

      Day trips from Dublin

      Ireland Mar 27, 2014 at 1:28 PM

      I am in Dublin for 5 nights (4 days). I am limited to public transportation. I intend to do bus tours from Dublin to the following: Cork/Blarney, Galway overnight tour (includes Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Cong, Kylemore Abbey), taxi tour to Monasterboice/Mellifont Abbey (a.m.) & walking tour of Dublin (p.m). This is a photo assignment for me, and I'm tasked with photographing iconic scenery of Ireland. I decided to go with this list and had to weed out places like Kilkenny, Kerry, Limerick, and Waterford because there is simply not enough time. Was this the right selection of spots?

      Best time to visit and driving there.

      Ireland Mar 24, 2014 at 3:14 AM

      Hi, I am planning to go to Ireland this year for 2-3 weeks. Both Northern and the Republic of Ireland. I am thinking to go either in the last week of August or mid September. Is this a good time to go? Also for those VT'ers who have been there and in your own country regularly drive on the right side of the road how difficult is it to adapt to driving on the left?

      My son wants to see as many castles as we can while we are there. Any suggestions on the best way to see them? Go in a loop, try to find them one by one - just looking for the best way to see as many as we can. Any we should avoid? Any that are haunted?

      Also is it easy to find accommodations there? Should I book ahead or can I walk into a B&B and get a room?

      Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

      The Irish Experience

      County Laois Oct 7, 2008 at 4:38 PM

      I wonder if there is a place to stay in Co Laios that incorporates a pub & accommodation, with a strong air of Irish hospitality. We intend to do some sightseeing, but would like to relax at the end of the night in a traditional pub with music, and the atmosphere only Ireland can offer. Asking a lot right?? It's our first trip over, and it's only a weekend this round. Just want to make the most of it. Any suggestions?

    • Location of Church

      County Laois Mar 17, 2007 at 10:19 AM

      I am going to Ireland July 2007. I have a death notice of a great uncle buried from Church of the Assumption, The Heath. Do you know where this is located? I think it is in County Laois, as that's what the newpaper clipping says. I'd like to see if I can locate any family that is still living there and I thought this would be a good place to start. His name was Joseph Dunne and he died August 27, 1955.

      Thanks.
