Are there recommended types of transportation from London to Dublin (land +cruise)?
Interesting views on the way?
Thanks in advance!
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 :)
HI everyone. I love nature views ang great atmosphire so I think Ireland will be very interesting for a visit. I wanna go next year in June but I want to order flights and hostels in advanced. 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 looking for a good hotel (not B&B) in Dublin close to the good tourist areas, restaurants and pubs though, quiet and quiet rooms with NO room to room noise. It should be a minimum 3 or 4 Star and if you have a specific hotel, please advise. We looked at a recent VT posting for the Camden Court Hotel, 4 star and it looked good, thanks to Beausoleil. All other suggestions are appreciated. Thanks to all VT comments.
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.
Thanks anyway...we are really looking forward the trip!!
Hello all...it is going to be our first time in Ireland.
We'll land in Dublin, then we´ll pick up our hired car and we would like to drive some kilometres to the north(not many, just to scape from the airport...) Do you have any suggestion for a nice hotel in that direction?
Next day we plan to stop in Bru No Boinne in our way to Belfast. Any suggestion on the itinerary is very welcomed.
Is this a nice place/area to stay and is it relatively safe to walk to Temple Bar etc from there?
I'm in the fair city at the end of October for 3 days, looking for some recommendations to see the local side of Dublin (good food, drink, and atmosphere), and also if anyone can recommend where to get a sports massage (after the run, otherwise no dancing!!)
Fellow travelers, I'm looking for a good place to stay fairly close to Dublin Airport the night before we leave for home. we are currently booked at one of the on-site hotels at the airport, but feel like that mauy not be the best end to what we hope will be a spectacular 10 day exploring Ireland. If anyone has any good recommendations I would appreciate your feedback!
Also, when arriving in Dublin where is the best place to convert US dollars to Euros to get the best rate?
My wife and 2 adult children will arrive in Dublin on August 5th. I know there are a lot of "must see" items on the tourist guides, but should we try to hit them or just wander aimlessly about town and seek out the local places to eat and sip a Guiness or two?
I don't want to be a rude visitor. What is considered rude behavior by tourists in Ireland?
Me and my friends, we're all females ( early to late 20s) plan on going to Dublin for one day. We we be there all day and night Thursday, Any good spots to go to? To embrace the culture and night life ! !

Is a day trip doable from dublin to Edinburgh? What about customs?
My son is going to Ireland on a "work holiday" through SWAP organization. I can't find anything on line from anyone who's done this recently. I think it's done through their Irish partner called USIT - does anyone know anything about this and whether it works well?
We will be in Dublin on Friday, May 16th from noon to 10 pm. We have not been there before. What would be your recommendation for the day?
Any suggestion for a decent hotel or B&B in Central Dublin around mid June? It should be for two persons (my wife and myself) and should have a private bathroom. Help me out please. Thank you,
Hi, My daughter is arriving from Holyhead to Dublin next week and I have no idea if I can drive onto the ferry port if I am not actually using the ferry myself. Can someone please tell me if I can get close to the terminal building so I can pick her up. She has just had an operation and doesnt need more stress not knowing where I will be.

This summer we are planning a visit round the Uk. We booked a flight from Liverpool to Dublin for the 27th -28th July .We want to spend a night there .What was our surprise we couldnt find a decent place at a good price . As you can imagine we are on a budget so could anyone suggest a place to stay near ther centre . That weekend most places are sold out the day we need to stay or are very expensive .
Also while I am here I would be grateful for any information to help us during our day and half stay . thank you very much :)
We are flying into Dublin for two days, then taking a short flight to Scotland for four days, then come back to Ireland for a driving tour outside Dublin. The flight to Scotland only allows for a small bag on the flight. Is there somewhere safe to store our larger bags while we are out of the country that's cheap/safe? We won't be staying in the same hotel after our return to Ireland.
Hi fellow VTs
I am taking 3 fourteen year old boys for weekend and I an looking for reasonably priced 2 bed roomed accommodation but maybe not a hostel preferably around the location of AM concert in Rathfarnum,,
My friend is arriving at Dublin airport and wants to know the number of the Bus that will take him close to Lower Abbey Street where his hotel is situated.
I know the 747 goes to the centre but have forgotten the others that are cheaper.
After a night at a hotel close to the airport in Dublin, I have a 6.50 am flight on Aer Lingus to Lyon FR. How much time do I need to reserve for check-in and security? The flight is on a Saturday if that makes any difference. Thanks!
I will be traveling to Dublin later in the year and was hoping to stay in a hotel/guesthouse I saw once on a favourite tv show. I have no idea about the name but am hoping that someone on the forum may be able to help me identify it by recognising any of the following features:
- Traditional style (high ceilings, chandeliers, dado rails on walls, fancy cornices and high kickboards)
- The specific room featured in the show was a suite (started with a D - I think it may have been 'The Director's Suite'??)
- Wallpaper was of a cream colour and had handwriting on it
- Above the dado rail there was a strip of small prints (two different recurring images of fairies or angels??)
- Three large windows next to each other (from ceiling down to dado) - the top of a large tree is visible from here
- Bed has a high arched blue upholstered headboard
- Blue carpet with a pattern of recurring pale mark
- Curtains are cream with gold lines making a diamond pattern
- Seems to be a fairly large room
- White bathroom with double vanity and a small black chandelier
- Note: As you open the door to the suite, there is a tiny alcove and you have the door to the bathroom directly in front of you and a door to the bedroom to your right.
- Wall above dado rail painted creamy tan
- Wall below dado rail painted deep red
- White trims and doors
- Mirrors and artwork decorations
- Small straight hall (just a lift opening to approx. 6 doors, inc. fire escape)
- The suite is at the end of the hall - directly facing the lift.
- Silver wallpaper above dado rail (sort of a floral diamond pattern)
- Painted a deep red below dado rail
- White trims and doors
- Unlike the other hallway this one (which I think is on a lower floor) has alcoves and other halls leading off in different directions.
- Relatively small and seems to have doors that open on either side
- Side interior walls are mirrored
I have trawled through countless Dublin accommodation websites trying to find the right hotel/guesthouse from the hundreds on offer with no luck and would be very grateful for any suggestions from fellow 'forumers' who may be able to help me identify this place. Thanks!!!
Will the shops in Grafton Street be open on Sunday (29/12/13), Do they close early on Sundays ?
Is it possible to purchase a ticket for the Hop on-hop off bus from the driver, Do you know the price.

Many thanks & a Happy Christmas
I will be in Dublin for 5 days at the end of this month. Any do's and dont's?
