      Hi. I am heading to Athlone with my children for a few days next month. I am looking for somewhere that I can take them that is suitable for their different ages. They are 16, 14 and 9. I know there are the historic sites ant the cruises but I am wondering is there anything else that would interest them? Also I don't drive so it has to be easy to get to.

      Day trips from Dublin

      Ireland Mar 27, 2014 at 1:28 PM

      I am in Dublin for 5 nights (4 days). I am limited to public transportation. I intend to do bus tours from Dublin to the following: Cork/Blarney, Galway overnight tour (includes Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Cong, Kylemore Abbey), taxi tour to Monasterboice/Mellifont Abbey (a.m.) & walking tour of Dublin (p.m). This is a photo assignment for me, and I'm tasked with photographing iconic scenery of Ireland. I decided to go with this list and had to weed out places like Kilkenny, Kerry, Limerick, and Waterford because there is simply not enough time. Was this the right selection of spots?

      Hello everybody,

      I have the choice between staying one night in Cork or in Limerick.

      What would you recommend?

      What is important to us:

      budget accomodation
      good nightlife
      good choice of happy hours
      lower price level

      Should we stay in Limerick or Cork for our last night?
      We have a rental car and need to be at Shannon airport by 3 pm, so I thought in case we stay at Cork we need to leave by noon?

      Thank you and greetings!

      Earlier this evening I asked for information about getting from the city of Limerick to the airport in the city of Shannon, in order to make an Aer Lingus flight to London that leaves SHANNON Airport at 0845, on September 3rd. I requested information on reliable shuttle service, taxi or bus, that was reasonably cost effective.

      While I appreciated the detailed reply I received, the directions were to the airport in Dublin and not Shannon. Could I try my question again, please? Thank you.

      day trip limerick to galway: poor idea?

      by oslonewcomer Online Now Jun 24, 2009 at 7:45 PM

      From Limerick, We're planning a couple days for excursions in county clare. The more I read about Bunratty, Adare, etc. the more they sound like tourist traps rather than somewhere I want to spend my few precious days in Ireland. So now we're thinking maybe a day trip to Galway. It looks like a 1 1/2 hour bus ride (can anyone advise CityLink vs. Bus Eireann?)
      We are more interested in people and life than in old castles (at least where it requires the better part of a day) does this seem like a reasonable use of time? Is Galway fairly compact and walkable (child and grandmother included in group)
