      DWAN Brew Pub, does it still exist or changed names?

      Thurles Nov 28, 2015 at 2:42 PM

      Does the DWAN Brew Pub does it still exist or has it changed its name and what is the street address? It was in the heart of Thurles when we visited some years ago. Excellent beer, location and ambiance and we want to visit again on our next visit to Ireland. Thanks, Chuck

    • How to divide time between Killarney and Doolin

      County Kerry Nov 10, 2015 at 12:11 PM

      Coming with family group of 5 the end of next May coming and going from Dublin with 8 nights in Ireland. Have learned of the Killarney Bikefest happening June 3rd-6th (know about the June 1st holiday also), so am thinking we should go immediately to Killarney or wherever we decide to stay in the area on the day we arrive (May 28th at 10:00am from direct 8 hour flight). Here are my questions:

      1) Are there one way train tickets going to Killarney from Dublin? (I know I can't catch the train directly at airport).
      2) Are the autos large enough for 5 adults plus luggage quite hard to find for rental? My search seems to have found them for rent from Killarney but not Dublin, which is puzzling.
      3) How long will it take to drive from the Dublin airport to Killarney on a Saturday? Is that manageable after a long flight? (FYI we are in our mid-50's, so not used to all nighters anymore, but hope to sleep on the plane).
      4). Is it better to stay in Killarney to see Ring of Kerry and Killarney Nat'l Park or stay in Kenmare or further around the ring? And how much would that add to the drive from Dublin? Note we have three 20-something "kids" with us so we want to have a mix of Irish immersion and some fun for them as well on the trip. It is actually a graduation present for two of them, but they love the nature, history, and exploring culture.
      5) We have been intrigued by the idea of staying in a castle and it looks like Ballyseede might be not far off the track between the ROK area and Doolin/Corofin. Do you consider this a worthwhile side trip?
      6) Assuming we have 6 nights to spend outside of Dublin, how would you advise dividing the time between the area around Killarney NP (we love nature and plan to hike) and the area near Doolin or Corofin to give us time to do the Doolin Cliff walk, tour some of the antiquities and nature in the Burren? This include thoughts about that castle stay I mentioned as one night in the middle.

      Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions please?

      Thanks so much!

      Hi I am planning to visit Shannon tomorrow and I was wondering how easy is it to travel around without a car. Especially to the Cliffs of Moher?

    • route to see Giantcauseway, Leitrm, Galway and Dingle

      Leitrim May 28, 2013 at 5:20 PM

      We are also booking a bed-and-breakfast with hired car trip in July for 10 days. That means two Friday nights! We'd like to see the Causeway and visit family homesteads in Leitrim and Ballinskellings. Not sure how many Gathering events are go on during the week so thought we'd head to the Causeway in the beginning of the week. Any suggestions or are we trying to cover too much? Thanks

      One night in Leitrim in November

      County Leitrim Jun 11, 2009 at 9:54 AM

      I plan on visiting Leitrim during the first weekend in November. I am on a four night trip to Ireland with my father and brother and would like to visit Leitrim, as my g-g-grandmother was born in Mohill R.C. Parrish area.

      Any recommendations for food/pubs, lodging, interesting spots to visit, particularly in the Mohill area? Right now, I think the day of the visit would be on a Sunday - or would anyone suggest against that?

      p.s. I am trying to figure out the town of my ancestor, but this may take some time. I hope to figure it out before the trip, but one never knows. I'd at least like to see the area if nothing else.
