      Bus tours from Dublin & other Q's (Photography questions)

      Ireland Jul 14, 2014 at 6:40 PM

      We are basing ourselves in Dublin and we don't drive. Can someone who has used a bus tour company lately (from Dublin) recommend 1 or 2 bus companies that A) do a really good tour of Cork/Blarney/Rock of Cashel (spending a decent amount of time at each so I can spend some time taking decent scenic photos) and B) do a really good overnight tour to Cliffs of Moher/Burren/Poulnabrone Domen and Kylemore/Galway/Cong without staying in a hostel? I'm an older lady traveling with a 77 year old mother and I don't think she'd like the 'openness' of a hostel. We also want to travel economically so a private tour is out. Also, what time of day (or weather) is good for photographing Monasterboice to get some really good 'atmospheric' shots (will be there in early September). Final Q: I have been digging deep online for any bus company (or even private company!) to give us a private tour of Monasterboice and Mellifont (these are the important photography locations I need to shoot) for under 250euros. Has anyone done one of these tours or know of who I can chat with to get prices from? I don't know who even to contact at the tourism office.

    • Car Rentals in Ireland. Confused About What's Included and What is Not

      Ireland Jul 1, 2014 at 11:50 AM

      I am planning a visit to Ireland and I have read many of the posts on this site and other travel sites and find that about five or six car rental companies are recommended. Can someone tell me what their experience has been with the following sites or your rental experience?

      Avis.ie
      Hertz.ie
      Dan-Dooley.ie
      Easytourireland.com (sells Hertz)
      ie.sixt.com
      irishcarrentals.ie

      Several have a fully inclusive rate promoted but in some instances they also have a deductible. Confusing.

      Is there truly a fully inclusive rate with no surprises at the counter?

      Thank you in advance for your response

      Hello, my soon-to-be husband & I are staying in Rathdrum for about 6 days in June and I haven't done much research because it is our honeymoon and I'm otherwise preoccupied with wedding plans. Are there any suggestions on things we should see, pubs with good food/music? Also any other suggestions outside of the area that are good for day trips (we are staying in Dublin for 5 days following our stay in Rathdrum). Thank you!

    • Powerscourt and Glendalough in the same day?

      County Wicklow Feb 3, 2009 at 7:27 PM

      Hello, I will be traveling in Ireland for the first time this March and wondering if it would be easy/difficult/worthwhile to visit Powerscourt house and gardens and Glendalough in the same day? It seems that Powerscourt estate might offer enough to do in one day, but I heard that Glendalough is very picturesque being near the Wicklow mountains. If this is possible what would be the best means of travel?

      Thanks so much for any advice or suggestions!

    • Family History Visit

      County Wicklow Feb 16, 2008 at 11:21 AM

      My family history includes ancestors described as being from "Vale of Avoca" and I have records of some being baptized in Arklow (although I have no parish names). What are the best resources for viewing parish records, as I've read that the parish priests are very covetous of those records and that libraries in Dublin are the best place to look.

      Also, what about visiting cemeteries for headstones? Are they well maintained to the point that markings are visible? We are planning a vacation to the Avoca/Arklow region later this year and I'd like to visit the places of our ancestral home.

    • Seeking suggestions for best town to stay.

      County Wicklow Jan 26, 2006 at 9:29 AM

      Hello

      I'm planning to take my teenage daughters on a holiday in August. We want to visit Dublin but probably not stay there. I'm thinking that County Wicklow would be nice, perhaps somewhere on the Dart rail line.

      I'd like a town that would be a good base from where to explore the area. That means good rail/bus links because we wont be driving. We're looking to visit some nice costal and countyrside spots, plus castles, country house gardens etc.

      I'd be very grateful for any suggestions or advice.

      Thanks, Julian

      Hi,
      Apologies for this being not a travel-related question as such, but I couldn't think of a better place to ask. I am thinking of taking a job in Bray, Co. Wicklow.

      Is Bray an expensive place to rent a flat? How about the crime rate? Any other places I could consider living within a reasonable commute (30 mins max) of Bray? How about Dun Laoghaire ? South Dublin ?

      Also, what about public transport into/around Dublin ?

      Thanks in advance
