What are teh prices for the spa in Westport Ireland
I've just preliminarily booked our wedding in the broadhaven hotel in Belmullet and we are travelling down on 25th to have a look around. Any recommendations for Belmullet? Has anybody been in the broadhaven?
Hi, we are thinking of climbing the reek on Saturday 15th August & I've been told that 15th August is the date the Travelling Community make the annual pilgrimage to the top. Just wondering if this is true? Thanks.
Does anyone on this forum know of where I can find information on Swinford, Ireland? Cannot find a travel link or tourist board for Ireland that shows anything about this town. Looking for not only travel information but historical information, industrial information and heritage. Can anyone help me? THanks. Betty

I randomly ended up booking a bed in Belmullet for tomorrow night so will be driving up from Galway. So what should I stop and see or do on the way up or back? Any suggestions on somewhere to go horse riding? Thanks.
Spent a fabulous day on Clare Island and just curious about all the cars. Not that there were many, but is there a car ferry or are they just used on the island? Also, I'm dying to know, what's with all the wrecked cars at Roonagh Quay? It's an eyesore.
We are interested in taking a day tour of Achill Island while we are visiting Castlebar. Are there any such services available other than renting a car.

I'm heading to Achill Island next weekend...loved reading all of your posts and seeing your photos! Spent a week in a thatched roof cottage in Donegal last fall and am renting a similar cottage on the island. I'm expecting to have bad hair all week and will pack rain gear. Flying into Shannon and will pick up groceries on the way. Any tips or advice for a September trip? Liz
I nm planning a holiday next June 2006 for my family (Wife, son, myself). We are looking at a self catering accomadation in the area. Can anyone help? Thank you .
Hi, does anybody know some transport which operates on a Sunday morning (22 August) around 8h from Westport to Galway City ? Kind regards, Nick Lanneau PS. already looked for bus eirran, but they depart only around 10h30 that day.
Are there many Gaelscoileanna (Irish-medium schools) in eastern Mayo? Do people in that part of Mayo use Irish at all in their everyday speech? My Grandmother came from Barroe (Barr Rua) near Charlestown. From what I've learned she attended such a school, with all her subjects in Irish. She moved to the States early on around 18 or 19 and returned to Ireland several times before she died. Go raibh maith agaibh. Is mise, le meas, ~_~Mícheál
Hi all, I will be in Castlebar during the annual 4-days-walks (1-4 July) and am wondering if anyone can recommend some good B&Bs that are centrally located... Thx in advance, Aryatti
One rarely gets warnings/complaints about Midges in Ireland, but at least in areas with blanket bog (like Achill Island), they must be around. Is my guess correct, that the problem is not as bad as in the Scottish Highlands? I'll be on Achill in July and should there be a warm and calm evening, it'd be great to be able to sit outside the cottage without having to fear Scottish-style air raids. I'm a bit careful after my last year's experience from South Uist. People told me there weren't any midges on the Outer Hebrides, and if there had been (strictly theroetically speaking...), then it'd be always windy enough to keep them from flying. WELL, we had a hot week with temperatures well above 25 Celsius and NO wind...flat out calm... and GUESS WHO was VISITING US??? GRRRRRR HOW I HATE THOSE MIDGES!!!!
Dear VT's I am heading to Achill on Saturday and would love to know about interesting places to enjoy while I am there! Thank you! Travel Di
My friend and I are touring Ireland by motorbike in June this year. Does anyone know of B&B accommodation in Bangor Co Mayo for the night of 26th June?
