I am spending one week in Galway July 2014, doing the Connemara & Burren coach tours & Corrib Princess Cruise but would really like to find a 3rd coach tour (not including the open top Galway bus and not to the Islands). Also if there is an interesting manor house to visit. Any suggestions. We don't drive.
Is there a bus service between Kiltimagh and Ballinrobe
I will be in Dublin for 5 days at the end of this month. Any do's and dont's?
we are a group of 7 girls going to Dublin in january 14.
a friend has booked our hotel, but I´m now not sure if it is in the " wrong" area.
she booked St. Georges hotel located at the top of O´Connell street?
we would like to go out in the evening...
are we okay or should we find another hotel?
Wasn't sure where it would be best to post this....We are going to Ireland for 1 week with our sons. My husband and I would like to fly someplace on the Mediterranean for 4-5 days before returning to New York. We would like to have a little beach time and scenery and enjoy the culture, food and sites of a place we have not yet seen. Lots of possibilities since we have only been to several areas of Italy. Since our time is limited, we probably should stay relatively near an airport. Some places that may be considered are Portugal - where?, Barcelona, Sardinia, Genoa, Nice, Croatia. Do you have any recommendations regarding these locations or have other suggestions?
I'm arriving in Dublin on Wednesday. Is anyone willing to take me in a one day tour in Wicklow Mountains National Park?
All the best,
How would get from dundalk to drumcar, I'm really stuck because I've got placement at 8 tomorrow and noone from my class is willing to reply to my post on our class wall on fb. It has been seen -_-.. I know there aren't any direct buses but I would just like to know the route. Just to tell you that I'm from clare and that I know no where in dundalk or anywhere in louth. It's a bit of a short now and any reply between now and 6 in the morning would be much appreciated. Thanks :)
Is there any service apartment around the Molesworth Street? or any other area close to St Stephens Green and bus station?
I will be traveling to Dublin for business trip from 8-13 and later will take 1 week off to explore Dublin/Ireland. I need help with below:
1. What is the best area to stay in Dublin for easy access to attraction and shopping by walking.
2. Is there any tourist bus for city sightseeing?
3. Is it advisable to travel to Belfast by train?
4. Is it good to take ferry during winter?
5. Where to shop Ireland product?
Hello, I am planning a self drive trip for myself and most of the B&B's have responded to my emails, but I have to say that several have not responded in over a week. Did anyone else have this experience? Should I be concerned, even though they are B&B's with good reputations?
Just want to finish planning - trip is in April, and I understand it gets quite busy in places during the weeks before and after Easter.
Go raibh maith agat.
These are square pillows with a lamb's head on top. Bought some in Dingle a couple years ago and the grandchildren have worn them out. Need to purchase more so they can sleep!
where can i find good night life on Sunday Night
Hi everyone :)! I'm planning a trip to Dublin for a week (exactly for a Christmas time!). I’m visiting my brother, but he isn’t good tourist guide :/ Can you recommend me interesting places in Dublin for a Christmas time? Have you ever been in Guinness Storehouse? Do you like it?
Is there any memory to Mr Dan and Mrs Jo O'Neill left in Kealkill? They owned the pub in the 60's and I lived with them when I was a child of 7 for about 7 months. Went back to see them in 1989 - Dan was so old and frail, Jo was a bit younger. Nellie still lived with them. I know they are now all deceased, of course. The pub was called The Brown Pub in 1989 and I don't think that's what it was called in the 60's. I want to come back to Ireland (from Australia of course) and Kealkill will be the most important stop for me. I lived all over the world as a child, but Ireland is my spiritual home, I am sure of that.

I plan on studying abroad in Ireland next fall (2014) and cannot decide between Galway, Cork, and Limerick. I have been tossing around Dublin, but I think it would be too big of a city.
They all sound like good population sizes to me.
I am an accounting major, but plan to only take two business related courses, so no one school stands out more than the other to me.
I want to experience all of Ireland (sightseeing, nightlife, pubs, culture) Really at this point its a toss up for me, but wanted to see if anyone had any additional advice.
Right now I'm leaning towards the way the atmosphere of Galway sounds, but I'm concerned the population may be too small for me. However, Cork sounds too big (I live in a city of 50,000).
The cheapest way to get there from Dublin airport via public transport
What - or where - is it cheaper to exchange US dollars for Euros. I'm trying to avoid fees if possible - should I go to a bank, exchange at the airport....or where? Also, should I use travelers checks when possible? Is the American Express credit card accepted in most parts of Ireland? Thanks very much for your help!
I am planning for a 2 full days trip to Southern Ireland. I will be travelling from London. I require help in tourist places inside Dublin on Day 1 and then somewhere out (less than 50 to 100kms) where I can see the non-city places.
I will be travelling with my wife and 2 daughters (aged 8 and 4). I also plan to rent a car atleast for day 2, are there any specific road rules or fees that I need to be concerned about. Request your help for travel tips.
I was thinking of going to Dublin for New Year's with my girlfriend. I was wondering how safe it would be cos I'm British and cos of all the people that will be drunk and maybe looking for fights. Thanks.
I will be arriving on Thursday Feb 19, 2014 in Dublin as a stop over before going on to London. It is my first time to Dublin and I only have 3 days. I have been to southwestern Ireland before.
At this time of year what would be excellent sights, hotel, restaurants and experiences?
My husband and I had hoped to go to Ireland for our honeymoon. We never made It and are now planning a trip in July and including our sons who are both in their mid 20's so we can all get a taste of our Irish heritage. The four of us would all be there for 7 days; my husband and I may stay longer. We would fly in to Dublin and stay a night or two in a Hilton where we have points. I was then thinking going west toward Galway would be best. Not sure if we should stay in 1 place after Dublin or 2 (southwest and northwest). I think bed and breakfasts would give us a the hospitality we're looking for - any recommendations? Would like to experience the small towns and pubs and see the Cliffs of Mohrer, Donnegal and Dingle. Thoughts and recommendations? Middleton distillery? Guinness brewery?
what place in Kilkenny would you recommend for women in their early 40's
Would you recommend I take a holiday in Roscrea, seems like there's very little to do for families.
Is the gaol in cork worth visiting? What is there to see there?
My husband and I will be in Dublin for 3 days, and want to visit the Harley Davidson in Red Cow Retail Center area, and I was wondering which is the best transport to take us there, we only have 1 1/2 hours free to get there.
And the prices if possible
Is there a list of campsites or overnight parking spots for the racing Festival in 2014?
Coming over from England for a holiday in the motorhome and wish to include the racing festival?
Me and my girlfriend (30s). We are planning our trip to enjoy Halloween. After a lot of research I narrowed it down to two places in Ireland, Derry and Meath. I am still not sure which one to choose. Derry feels more like a carnival but looks more organised. Meath not so organised but feels more Halloween.
Please give me your opinion. I'm looking forward to enjoy Halloween.
Best B&B on Inishmore?
I am 24, and I just got out of an engagement. I also took care of my grandmother for two years while she had cancer. In that time I had to quit college in order to do what was best for her and my mentally handicapped uncle. Now I am totally lost as to what to do with my life. I love to travel, go biking, read, and I am a pretty sufficient person in general. I guess what I am looking for in a get away is some where that I can recollect, figure things out; enjoy life again. I need to regain some sense of peace and direction. I am definitely the type who would've joined Peace Corps when I had finished University or taken a trip strictly to help children who cannot help themselves. Whether it was here in the US, Asia, Africa; It wouldn't matter where to me. Now I need to help myself though, and I don't quite know how. I also know my answer won't be found just traveling, but I do need time to think. (And a girl can hope for a miracle right?! :)) SO that leads me to this. I've been to almost every US state, but never outside of it. I was supposed to go to Nigeria, Africa right before my grandmother passed away to help with Children who needed books, and other things of that nature last year. That obviously did not happen, but my grandma was a huge part of my life. She raised me, and was for the most part all I had. So I never thought twice about not going when she started to get more ill, and I've never regretted my decision to put my life on hold. Places I have always wanted to visit are Italy, Greece, Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, New Zealand, Finland, London, and many more! I love to travel... See new cultures... Experience new things. I also love small coastal towns with old charm, friendly people, fishing towns. I have thought about railroad passes once in these places, and thought about staying in hostels. I am going to be a female traveling alone for the first time out the US though. Therefore I worry about hostels. So what I mainly looking for is recommendations on places to go for what I need at the moment. I would like to be able to meet people my own age along the way, and I only speak english unfortunately. I love the outdoors, art, architecture, music, culture, and history. My time at the moment is unlimited and I would like to do as much as I can. If there are any recommendations to get me in the direction I need to be. I would love to have your help. I also understand that this is very broad, and not at all pinpointing where I would like to go. That is mainly due to me not knowing which place or places would benefit what I am looking for the most. I would be extremely grateful if anyone knows just what to do... Or can guide me in the right direction. Thanks!
Hi, anyone know of free parking walking distance from Cork Kent train station? I am not in a hurry - can walk up to an hour. Thanks
