    • Dublin and....

      Dublin Feb 19, 2015 at 10:41 AM

      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.

      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!

      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

      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.

      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!

      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)
