      Does this castle have a lot of stairs on the guided tour. Quite happy with some stairs but not too happy with the stairs that go into turrets i.e. spiral staircases. Will it be open week after Easter. Many thanx

    • 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.

    • Dingle Way, Kerry Way, or Beara Way?

      Ireland Feb 28, 2015 at 4:44 PM

      We are experienced walkers, though not young! Which is the best walking trail for 4 days of walking? Dingle, Kerry or Beara Way in June, 2015? And my husband is a huge fan of Irish music that we'd like to hear some nights.
      Thanks so much!

    • 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

      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 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?
