      Industrial school or Abbey?

      Cork Mar 14, 2015 at 4:33 PM

      My grandmother was born about 1887 in Cork. She stayed in either an industrial school or orphanage in Cork for several years, raised by nuns. I am looking for this school or orphanage/abbey? Does anyone know of such a place in Cork? My email is kathysibley@sbcglobal.net.

    • Hertz or Enterprise Drop Off Location close to Powerscourt

      Dublin 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.

    • Hotel prices - where to stay?

      Dublin Mar 17, 2015 at 12:27 PM

      Hello! I have made let's say a thorough research to find a hotel in Dublin centre. I was really surprised when I discovered that the prices are really HIGH!!! (when compared to other comparable cities in size).

      I am wondering where to stay in Dublin Centre and I'd like to get recommandations for a hotel in the range of 70-100 euros per night. I'll be there for 2 (full) days at the end of June and would like to be in the middle of everything in order to save on transportation time. Thanks for your help.

    • 5 Days in Ireland

      Ireland Mar 12, 2015 at 4:50 PM

      Hello, my friends and I will be spending 5 days in Ireland in mid May. We have managed to narrow down what we want to do to 4 major attractions and would like to know if its doable in the 5 days we have available. This is our tentative itinerary so far:

      Day 1: Spend entire day in Dublin
      Day 2: Drive to Galway and see the Cliffs of Moher. spend night in Galway
      Day 3: Drive to Killarney and tour the Ring of Kerry
      Day 4: Return to dublin, spend day in the city
      Day 5: Tour Giants Causeway

      Is it feasible to do this in 5 days? Or are we crazy thinking this is doable? We haven't decided yet if we will be renting a car and doing it on our own, or using guided tours that take care of the transportation for us.

      restaurant recommendations

      Dublin 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

      Carlingford to Dundalk

      by airkarat Online Now Jan 15, 2007 at 9:10 AM

      Our flight into Belfast was bumped ahead by one day, so we have a day and evening to spend somewhere within access of the *Dublin* airport where we fly out the next morning (need to be at the airport by 10am).

      We will be relying on public transport, and were looking for a smaller town with friendly locals and charm, and are interested in staying in Carlingford. The morning bus doesn't put us in Dundalk in time to catch the express bus to the airport (@ 8:30am). Any idea of what a taxi would cost from C to D? The alternative would be to take the Aircoach out of Newry around the same time - what would a taxi fare be for C to N?

      I hesitate to ask two more questions because they seem silly, but here goes:

      Depending on weather, and since our inbound flights put us at Belfast International airport at an ungodly 5:10am, we were thinking of hopping on a train and doing a quick tour (bus drive) of the north Antrim coast. Doing so would delay our arrival in Carlingford to @ 5pm which in January will be after dark. Likewise, leaving Carlingford at 8am would be before sunrise. Silly question #1: is Carlingford 'pretty' at night - are the ruins lit up? Will it be worth traveling off the beaten track for an evening there? We will be tired, but Scott would like to have a traditional pub meal and some Guinness and conversation.

      Of course if the weather is not conducive to touring the coast then we will be in Carlingford much earlier!

      Silly question #2: Scott thinks that the only place to buy Guinness merchandise is the Guinness storehouse in Dublin - hats, sweaters (jumpers), etc. I would imagine that these things are prevalent throughout Ireland like our Molson Canadian stuff is here in Canada. If so, are there any place to avoid paying 'tourist' prices?

      Any other suggestions?
