      Planning a Trip!

      Ireland Sep 8, 2015 at 8:18 PM

      So my husband and I are starting to plan our trip to Ireland :D it will be a like a late honeymoon/early anniversary present. We would like to know what people think is the best time to go? But we are really wanting to rent a car and have our own experience, we aren't the type for the touristy crowd all the time. Even though we want to see the sights so I can take a million pictures, we want to experience Ireland the way we would at home, at the pubs talking to locals, eating food and listening to music. Anyone have any suggestions on places to see, stay, or eat? I'm hoping we can drive the whole Country and hit Some of Scotland, how long do you think would be a good time to stay? We may only have 1-2 weeks to visit.

      Travelling solo

      Dublin Oct 2, 2015 at 12:06 PM

      I'm spending 5 days in Dublin from the 12 th of October until the 17th. I'm staying at the castle hotel. I have some tons of research on how to stay away from tourist traps and plan on seeing the city and outlying villages on my own. I would like to know how easy it is to make ones way around on the dart as well as walking in the city.. I won't have data to access google maps while on the streets.. ( crappy phone company ) I hate being stupid. Haha! Also what kind of reception should i expect in the pubs as a single woman.. I love beer, not that cider stuff that I heard women are supposed to drink.. Thank you for any information in advance .. Sandy

    • Seven days in Ireland

      Ireland Sep 29, 2015 at 10:27 AM

      I have planned a trip to Ireland and I am looking for some of your expert guidance! As usual there is just too much to see and too little time. Please don't worry about adding something you found interesting. Some of our best experiences travelling were from taking advice and doing things we had no intention of doing.
      Day 1. Land at Dublin Airport. By the time we get to our B&B it will be early afternoon with no sleep the night before so I don't anticipate doing anything other than going out for a walk. Our B&B is in Upper Rathmines.
      Day 2. A day in Dublin on the Hop on Hop off bus. Hope to see the Book of Kells.
      Day 3. Drive to New Ross to see the famine ship. Then check in at Slieverue B&B. Hopefully there will be time to visit the Waterford crystal factory.
      Day 4. I wanted to do the Rock of Cahir and Cashel Castle and the Titanic museum at Cobh and the Blarney castle. And that is after cutting back! lol It is obviously not going to happen. What do I eliminate? We are staying near Blarney.
      Day 5. Another dilemma. Do we do the Ring of Kerry or the Dingle peninsula? A friend from Ireland says we MUST do the Ring of Kerry. Is there time to do one of these and Muckross house as well? Beausoleil said she really enjoyed it.
      Day 6. Drive to Limerick, stopping at Adare to sightsee. Spend the evening at Bunratty castle.
      Day 7. Drive back to Dublin via Kilkenny.

      Any advice is greatly appreciated. We are Canadians so driving distances don't bother us. Also we lived in Australia for a few years so driving on the "other" side and sheep on the road don't bother us. It will be great not having to deal with kangaroos!
      Thank you! Dianne

    • Where to stay for 3 Weeks?

      Dublin Sep 22, 2015 at 6:50 AM

      Hy there, I'm staying 3 weeks in Febr. '16 in Dublin for a Language School.
      I'm too old for a Guestfamily but I think it can be nice at a B&B where I can have
      connections to the owners - but not that much as in a family ;)
      Do you have some ideas? Thanks a lot! Sabine

    • Ireland & Scotland on a budget 10 days not driving

      Ireland Sep 13, 2015 at 12:06 AM

      I'm traveling to Ireland and Scotland in a short amount of time on a budget and MUST see both countries without driving. I've done my research and yes, it would be best to stay longer and explore both places deeper but it isn't an option. :( I enjoy seeing sights, castles, architecture, & history. I am limited physically so walking long distances or rocky terrain is out and tours are too restricted and expensive. I also do not desire to spend my time seeing these two destinations and through a plane, train, ferry or bus window. I want to see and do as much as possible while there! Any itinerary suggestions for how best to travel, spend my 10 days and money, cheap but safe places to stay (I am middle aged so no youth hostels), and must do/see things?

      Hi All,

      There is a small group of six coming to Waterford this summer for a long weekend. We are slowly planning our trip and as some of us have never been to Ireland we wanted to go a little bit authentic when we are eating and drinking ;) out. I am after some advise from the locals as usually they know places that are good, not too expensive and traditional. Any other recommendation of things to do would also be great but that is not essential.

    • Help finding name of a bar.

      Waterford Aug 9, 2008 at 11:31 AM

      I had occasion to visit a bar recently in Waterford situated on one of the "quaysides" to the west of Reginald's Tower, I think I crossed at least one road junction to find it.
      It had a black frontage with windows that didn't allow one to see inside, (I seem to remember) being covered to half their height.
      The bar's name looked foriegn and possibly contained the word "america(n)", the name was also framed by two flags, one before and one at the end of the name, which could have been picked out in red.
      It didn't look like the sort of bar a tourist would venture into but myself and two colleagues were made extremely welcome by a quartet of very "colourful" regular customers and within a few minutes were treated like long lost members of their families.
      The reason I need the name of the bar is that I took a number of photographs of the afoementioned regulars and landlord and I promised to send them all copies.
      I know I should have paid more attention to the name of the bar but we were all very "tired" when we finally left the bar to return to the coach, which whisked us on our way.
      If anyone could shed any light on my problem, I would be very grateful.
