    • Charlie's Bar

      Cork Yesterday

      I visited Charlie's Bar back in the early 80's. I would like to go back there if it is still open. I'm from Texas and hope to make a trip to Ireland in 2015. A visit to Cork is in my plans. Who can tell me about Charlie's Bar?

      Where to go at night (particularly interested in Christmas night)

      Dublin Dec 9, 2014 at 2:47 AM

      We (me and my wife) are going to visit Dublin from 21st of December to 28th of December. We don't know where to go at Christmas Eve and at Christmas. We want to go to some pub os something alike and celebrate with other people to feel the Spirit of Christmas.
      We are not Irish :)

    • Great place to settle in Ireland for a few years with 3 preschool toddlers

      Ireland Dec 12, 2014 at 9:35 AM

      We're traveling to Ireland for one to three years and want to set up in a small kid friendly town or quiet neighborhood of a city. We're partial to beaches over mountains, but with three kids we work from home (slow internet is fine) and stay close to home. So things like nightlife, restaurants, etc are all nice to have, but really not part of our equation. We'd trade a more kid friendly spot for one single adults might desire.

      As for the neighborhood, I think many of us have a common vision of an idyllic child-friendly town or neighborhood. It would have people of all ages, and be as diverse as possible in Ireland. It would not be too crowded, nor too spread out. It would be a nice place to take a walk or ride a bike. It would be fine to drive to the grocery store once a week, ideally one with healthy, even organic food available.

      As for further socializing the kids we would rent a home close to a nearby preschool. We have two boys and a girl, and would want them to all be able to attend the same school - with little drive time, if any. We are only talking preschool and kindergarten at this point. We want open minded and progressive, but not so open minded that one's brains fall out. We'd rather religion not play a big role in the school, but are not afraid of that as long as no one is too rigid. We like a school in a natural setting so the kids are in nature when possible, and a style that leans montessori as opposed to a teacher up front with a ruler...

      Hope this helps bring some places to mind. Thanks in advance.

    • Planning the first trip

      Ireland Dec 7, 2014 at 10:55 AM

      My wife, teenage son and myself are planning a trip to Ireland for June of 2015. This will be our first trip to Ireland, and we're looking for any advice that would help us not make the usual mistakes common for first-time visitors.

      Our basic itinerary, as things stand now:

      * Dublin; 3 nights, arriving on a Sunday and departing Wednesday
      * Cork; 1 night
      * Killarney; 2 nights
      * Galway; 2 nights

      We'd be especially interested in understanding if we are allocating too much or little time in any particular area- I've a nagging thought that the 3d night in Dublin might be better spent elsewhere.

      Our plan is to travel by rental car between cities. We're arriving at Dublin and departing from Shannon- again, as things are planned right now.

      Any suggestions of places to visit outside of the standard "must see" attractions would be very welcome.

      Thanks in advance for any and all responses.

      Getting to Battle of the Boyne heritage site by foot, bus or bike?

      by Gichuck Online Now May 31, 2010 at 8:59 AM

      Advice welcomed. I'm hoping to go from Dublin to the Battle of the Boyne heritage site at Oldbridge, near Drogheda. Is it possible to walk from Drogheda bus or train station, i.e. how far is it? Bus Eireann told me that the Drogheda to Slane bus does not go near the entrance to the site. Also, where exactly is the entrance? Many thanks, GI Chuck, Cabinteely, Dublin 18.

      Laytown races...

      by iaint Online Now Aug 29, 2008 at 5:16 AM

      I'm taking a day off work to see something special. I'm going on my own, and then I thought I'd open it up to all VT members. Short notice & unusual event, but who knows...

      Laytown is near Drogheda. Once a year it holds a horse race meeting which is the same as anything you'll see at Longchamps, Epsom or Monmouth Park - except that it takes place on the beach at low tide. For more information look at www.goracing.ie and select the Laytown tab on the left.

      First race is at 3pm. The 6th and last is at 5.30.

      I'll be renting a small car at Dublin airport about 10am, and could take anyone who needs transport. I'll be having lunch somewhere near Drogheda.

      Fancy something different?
