      Activities in Athlone

      Athlone Apr 20, 2014 at 1:04 AM

      Hi. I am heading to Athlone with my children for a few days next month. I am looking for somewhere that I can take them that is suitable for their different ages. They are 16, 14 and 9. I know there are the historic sites ant the cruises but I am wondering is there anything else that would interest them? Also I don't drive so it has to be easy to get to.

      Thank you

      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.

      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

      Midges on Achill

      Achill Island Apr 27, 2004 at 8:44 AM

      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!!!!
