      We are going to be in Dublin for 5 days in September. We are planning on doing a hop on and off bus tour on our first day; the second day a trip out of Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher; the 3rd day spent back in Dublin, 4th day another trip out to the countryside and the 5th day free to decide when we are there. We would like suggestions of anything you think are musts for us to see or do? We love the pictures of Kylemore Abbey and wondering if that trip would be good to take?
      Any suggestions of tour companies for day trips?
      Thanks in advance. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

      My family and I are in Dublin from the 19. of juni to the 23. of june. Unfortunately much too little time.
      ButI have read, that the left wing and the museum of Kilmainham Gaol can be closed during the summer, because of renovation. Does anyone know, if it will be in the periode, where we are visiting the city?
      I also read, that the Riverdance Show is coming to Dublin on the date, we are leaving. I am very sad about that. But I would like to know if there are any possibilities to see some Riverdance anyhow?

    • Hertz or Enterprise Drop Off Location close to Powerscourt

      by Sister229 Online Now Mar 24, 2015 at 7:20 AM

      Hello from Colorado. We will be arriving at Shannon Airport and hope to rent a car there for a few nights in the Dingle Peninsula. We will then drive to the Powerscourt Hotel, Enniskerry. At that point we will need to find a drop off location as close to the hotel as possible. We'd like to avoid driving in Dublin. It looks like Enterprise has a drop off location in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown. We might also consider Hertz. Have tried working with the hotel concierge, who has been helpful, but need some specific information. How long a drive would it be from car drop off to hotel? What would taxi fare be? Best route from Dingle to Powerscourt, spending one night to see the Rock of Cashel? Thanks for your suggestions.

      restaurant recommendations

      by hevbell Online Now Mar 16, 2015 at 9:11 AM

      I'm travelling to Dublin with my parents next week and looking for recommendations for places to eat. I know there are a ton of reviews on here but its a lot to trawl through and many won't suit my dads tastes.

      We are arriving probably around 6pm to our accomodation (near Jervis Centre) so will be looking to go out and eat pretty soon after our arrival and it would be good to have some ideas at least for that first night as we won't want to spend ages looking around for somewhere. My dad is quite fussy with food, very much a meat and two veg kind of guy so somewhere that does traditional pub grub or carvery style would be ideal. I have been to O'Neills on a previous visit and enjoyed it but not sure if it is even still there or not.

      any recommendations appreciated

      by bean4bean4 Online Now Feb 19, 2015 at 10:41 AM

      I will spend 5 days in Ireland at the end of June. It's my first trip to Ireland.
      I intend to stay in Dublin for 2 days and then spend the other 3 days exploring. Considering that I have decided that I won't rent a car, I am wondering what part of Ireland I should visit. Is it possible, considering that I would use trains and buses, to visit Galway, the Cliffs of Moher and around in 3 days? I am hesitating between this area and the Ring of Kerry. I believe I cannot do both even partly, because of time constraints (3 days).

      Your help will be very much appreciated.

      daytrip to Glendalough

      by hevbell Online Now Feb 10, 2015 at 6:25 AM

      Background - I am spending a few days in Dublin during march with my parents for a belated birthday trip for them. I have been to Dublin several times but they have never been. I was thinking of day trips we could do that would let them see something of the Irish countryside and preferably something that I have never done on my previous trips so Glendalough sprang to mind.

      Reading other posts it doesn't seem like there is much choice in public transport?? but my concern with an organised tour is booking it and then finding its pouring with rain that day...

      How much time would it take on average to see Glendalough? And if taking a tour do they give you time to take it in, take (lots in my case) photos etc or are you just rushed about? Would we be able to turn up for a tour on the day or must they be booked in advance?

      Any advice appreciated! thanks

I don't want to rent a car... I checked and saw this company paddywagon for day tours from dublin... Do you know by any chance if thats the best tour company there? should I book a hostel for 10 days in dublin and go each day for a tour? I first thought to book also a hostel in belfast but I see they're taking a day tour to the giant cosway and belfast too... should I book a hostel in galway for the aran islands? I wasn't sure if they're taking to that place from the day tour.... also someone recommended me to go to the hill of tara and they don't go there... do you know if it's possible to go there from dublin to a day trip by public trasportation? thanks!!

      We are searching for an hotel in Dublin for our final leg of our trip to Ireland. I don´t know if it is normal, but many hotels are fully booked that night, and prices are very high...then the day after everything is available and less expensive. Is there any special event that is causing this, or is it normal? Or maybe it is just me and a case of "bad luck in my search?".
      It is not a big problem as we´ll have a hired car, so we can spend that night out of Dublin and arrive the day after, but we would like to know.
