    • 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.

      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

      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

      Dublin 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

      Where to visit for 6 days in Ireland

      Ireland Feb 9, 2015 at 7:10 PM

      Hello my friends,

      My wife and I are coming to your beautiful country at the end of March. We heard the weather is great (just joking). We can fly into either Cork, Shannon or Dublin (Ryanair). We must fly out of Dublin.

      So, if we fly into Cork, rent a car and travel south to Kinsale for the night.

      Day 2 drive on N71 towards Killarney

      Day 3 drive either the Kerry Ring or Dingle Ring (which one?)

      Day 4 drive toward Dublin (Rock of Cashel)

      Day 5 in Dublin

      Day 6 in Dublin

      Day 7 fly out early.

      How does that sound? Any suggestions, we assume that alot of hotels, etc. maybe closed in Kinsale, Killarney, etc.

      Thanks in advance!

      QUICK TOUR - THEN WANT TO EXTEND TRIP A FEW DAYS - NEED SUGGESTIONS

      Ireland Feb 5, 2015 at 10:31 AM

      Hi all

      I have the opportunity to get a very good deal for 5 days in Ireland. Well, really 4 since we arrive Dublin Day 2.

      spend that day in Dublin, then on to County Cork - see Blarney Castle, Woolen Mills

      Day 4 - do Ring of Kerry

      Day 5 on way to Dublin do Rock of Cashel

      Since this is such a quick tour, we decided if we go we'd like to extend our trip a few days. But we really are up in the air as to what to do & how to go about it.

      First time for both my husband & I.

      We like history, wandering interesting & unique areas. beautiful scenery. Honestly, we've both always loved Irish music & the country looks so beautiful -- but aren't really up on what are great things to do there.
