      Ferry from Ireland to Wales... Dublin or Rosslare?

      Ireland 4 hours ago

      I'll be in Northern Ireland for a genealogy course in September, then going down to Waterford. To travel back to London, I'm debating between going across at Rosslare, or going from Dublin to Holyhead. Not sure if this is an Irish question or a Welsh question... as I also need to know which would be the best train to London. But I also need to know what is the easiest way for a foot passenger - will be either taking train or bus to ferry terminal... and then train to London - so which would be handiest, or most scenic. I'm retired, have the time, and don't really want to fly... don't see much!
      Thanks for your help! I am posting this in the Wales forum as well.

      Lisdoonnvara Matchmaker Festival DO or DON'T ?

      Lisdoonvarna Jun 28, 2015 at 7:32 AM

      Hello. I've recently reconnected with my mother's cousin and extended family in Roscommon, Ireland and am planning a trip this September with my sister. We'll be flying out of Shannon Airport after spending some time on the west coast and thought we might end the trip with a stop in Lisdoonvarna while the festival is going on. It looks like it could be alot of fun with great music and such. We're not really interested in the matchmaking angle, but...not totally opposed to that either :) I'd be happy to hear any opinions on this as well as any suggestions as a last night stop before leaving for Shannon Airport in the morning (11 am flight)
      Thanks!

    • Hotel in Killarney

      Ireland Jun 18, 2015 at 4:18 PM

      Considering return visit to Killarney and need suggestions for hotel. I prefer to stay near National Park as I like to walk in area, or a hotel near to bus/train. I stayed last time in B&B which was listed 4* and would not return to it. I had to leave to get early train at 7am to be in Dublin and I had notified hosts day earlier. They did not offer me a cup of tea or even slice of toast. When I went down to lobby to pay my bill, they stated they do not offer refreshments before dining room opened and said they have facilities in room. That was not good enough since I paid high price for 3 nights and when one is rushing to be on early train they could have bent the rules as I had no time to start making tea and there was no milk in room. I thought of putting in a complaint with tourist board but realized I might never hear back or get any satisfaction so would not return there.

      Any suggestions. I will be in Ireland last days of August. Thank you.

      A Brief Visit to County Louth?

      County Louth May 10, 2015 at 12:26 AM

      Traveling as a single female, I'm wondering if County Louth is a safe place to stay. Thus far, I see no reason why it wouldn't be.
      Q: Should I stay 1 or 2 days?
      Q: Is there anything to do other than see castles (which sounds wonderful, anyway)?
      Q: I'm planning on starting my trip in Dublin and heading to Louth & Galway. Can I see the sites in Louth on foot, or will I need to drive?
      Many thanks!

      Opening hours 2014?

      Mellifont Abbey Feb 25, 2014 at 5:55 PM

      I've seen 2 websites with 2 different answers for the opening times for this abbey. One says it will close after August 28 2014 and the other says mid-September 2014. I tried emailing them but I don't think anyone is monitoring the emails at this time of year. Anyone know for sure? I'm trying to arrange flights from Canada to Dublin and the date is important since I'd rather come in September and not August. I guess you can't wander about the grounds off-season?

      Getting to Battle of the Boyne heritage site by foot, bus or bike?

      Drogheda May 31, 2010 at 8:59 AM

      Advice welcomed. I'm hoping to go from Dublin to the Battle of the Boyne heritage site at Oldbridge, near Drogheda. Is it possible to walk from Drogheda bus or train station, i.e. how far is it? Bus Eireann told me that the Drogheda to Slane bus does not go near the entrance to the site. Also, where exactly is the entrance? Many thanks, GI Chuck, Cabinteely, Dublin 18.

      Laytown races...

      Drogheda Aug 29, 2008 at 5:16 AM

      I'm taking a day off work to see something special. I'm going on my own, and then I thought I'd open it up to all VT members. Short notice & unusual event, but who knows...

      Laytown is near Drogheda. Once a year it holds a horse race meeting which is the same as anything you'll see at Longchamps, Epsom or Monmouth Park - except that it takes place on the beach at low tide. For more information look at www.goracing.ie and select the Laytown tab on the left.

      First race is at 3pm. The 6th and last is at 5.30.

      I'll be renting a small car at Dublin airport about 10am, and could take anyone who needs transport. I'll be having lunch somewhere near Drogheda.

      Fancy something different?

      Carlingford to Dundalk

      Dundalk Jan 15, 2007 at 9:10 AM

      Our flight into Belfast was bumped ahead by one day, so we have a day and evening to spend somewhere within access of the *Dublin* airport where we fly out the next morning (need to be at the airport by 10am).

      We will be relying on public transport, and were looking for a smaller town with friendly locals and charm, and are interested in staying in Carlingford. The morning bus doesn't put us in Dundalk in time to catch the express bus to the airport (@ 8:30am). Any idea of what a taxi would cost from C to D? The alternative would be to take the Aircoach out of Newry around the same time - what would a taxi fare be for C to N?

      I hesitate to ask two more questions because they seem silly, but here goes:

      Depending on weather, and since our inbound flights put us at Belfast International airport at an ungodly 5:10am, we were thinking of hopping on a train and doing a quick tour (bus drive) of the north Antrim coast. Doing so would delay our arrival in Carlingford to @ 5pm which in January will be after dark. Likewise, leaving Carlingford at 8am would be before sunrise. Silly question #1: is Carlingford 'pretty' at night - are the ruins lit up? Will it be worth traveling off the beaten track for an evening there? We will be tired, but Scott would like to have a traditional pub meal and some Guinness and conversation.

      Of course if the weather is not conducive to touring the coast then we will be in Carlingford much earlier!

      Silly question #2: Scott thinks that the only place to buy Guinness merchandise is the Guinness storehouse in Dublin - hats, sweaters (jumpers), etc. I would imagine that these things are prevalent throughout Ireland like our Molson Canadian stuff is here in Canada. If so, are there any place to avoid paying 'tourist' prices?

      Any other suggestions?
