      Personal WiFi / Mifi Hotspot (information)

      Ireland Mar 22, 2014 at 12:50 AM

      I am not sure how much the car hire folk are charging for mifi these days or the cost of internet hook up in places that charge for the service but Tesco mobile are selling the E5220 @ €50 + €15 for 15GB/month data so €65 sets you up with your own WiFi and a device which you can stick on ebay when yo get back home.

      tescomobile.ie/broadbandandi...

      Side note, using this in N.I. would be Roaming rates

      Activities in Athlone

      Athlone Yesterday

      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

      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.

      Visiting Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery in November?

      County Sligo Nov 3, 2012 at 11:41 AM

      I will be in the Sligo area this month and would very much like to visit the Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery. The trouble is that all of the information I am finding says that the area is only open April through October. Is the entire area gated, fenced, or otherwise closed off in during the 'off season'? Is it possible for me to just park and walk around so long as I understand that the visitor's center is not in operation? Thank you in advance to anyone who can help :-)
      Cheers!

      After spending a week horsebackriding in the Sligo area, we have 5 days to travel to other areas of Ireland. Are there specific modes of travel from Sligo that make it easy to see other areas. We will be arriving from Dublin by train to Sligo, so would like to go to the Spainish Point area, but am not sure how to get there from Sligo since we will not have a car. Or, should we head to another area. We are very flexible. Are there car rentals in Sligo that allow us to drop off the car in Dublin where we will be flying home? ANy type of information or suggestions would be appreciated? This is our first visit abroad to Ireland.

    • lodging near sligo train station

      Sligo Jun 7, 2009 at 8:57 PM

      Can anyone recommend a hotel or B&B in Sligo that is not too far from the train station? (Unless the train station is in a dreadful part of town that you'd discourage staying in.) Main concerns are something accessible to my 93-year-old mom who uses a push walker and can't do a lot of stairs at one time. Did you have occasion to use either taxi or bus from the station to the hotel or B&B? Do you recall the approximate cost?

And what other POs serve the peninsula that consists of an area shown as Drumcliff on some maps (not the town or village of Drumcliff, which holds the remains of William B. Yeats)? And finally, what PO delivers the mail to Dunleavy's Market and to Ellen's Pub and to the immedaite area around the Carrigans cemetery? Help!!!!
