Hi, I will be moving to Dublin for work in September 2013. Likely to be there for at least 2 years. My office will be located at Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2. Any good suggestions for reasonable accommodation with easy access to public transport and amenities like supermarkets, nightlife, etc? Safety of course is very much a priority also. Much appreciated!
We are also booking a bed-and-breakfast with hired car trip in July for 10 days. That means two Friday nights! We'd like to see the Causeway and visit family homesteads in Leitrim and Ballinskellings. Not sure how many Gathering events are go on during the week so thought we'd head to the Causeway in the beginning of the week. Any suggestions or are we trying to cover too much? Thanks
I have read the forums on travel in and around Dublin, as well as gone to the individual websites to try to get a grasp of the best in public transport options. I have to say that I am so overwhelmed so perhaps I can obtain suggestions on the best option based on my travel. Will be arriving in Dublin on Sept. 14th and staying one week. I don't 'do' rental car, am travelling alone, staying in Parnell Square area, would like to make a day trip to Belfast, North Ireland(bus or train?), and side trips to Howth and perhaps a few other places. my hotel is across a hop on,hop off stop so figured I would purchase a ticket on day of arrival to get a feel for the different areas. Since I am going to be relying on public transport for the week, what would be the most convenient option? I am not so much concerned with the least expensive option but would rather be able to have several options available where I am not purchasing a separate ticket for this trip, that transfer, etc. Is there a ticket that allows u to have the choice of bus, local tram, etc. all in one price? (such as the oyster card in London).
sorry if these appears to be quite a simpleton question but I just can't figure out the difference in all the options and I have read them ad nauseum.
thank you in advance.

We are shortly to travel to Dublin and will arrive in the centre soon after 9.00am. The hotel doesn't allow check-in until 3pm and has no facilities for leaving luggage. Anyone know anywhere in the Grafton Street area where luggage can be left for a few hours at reasonable cost?
I will be in Dublin in Sept. and one of my favorite past times is shopping for all things tea and coffee. Can any tea and coffee connoisseurs point me into the right direction to find lovely and charming tea shops-u know the kind...the big jars or boxes of loose teas on the shelves where you can sniff and ask all kinds of questions to find the ones that suit your tastes. teas and coffees are one of my favorite things to bring back from any trip to sip and enjoy long after the trip is over. I do find 'yelp dublin' helpful with reviews, etc. One place I am interested in is Palais de Thes located on Wicklow street. I know it is a French co. that has shops in other cities worldwide. Interested in opinions on great places to sip a cuppa perhaps not so touristy such as Bewley's.
thank you in advance
Hello! I am excited for my next vacation - leaving on May 23rd for Ireland. We will be there for 11 days -we are taking the "Best of Ireland" which is an organized Tour. that is a first for me! But I am looking for packing suggestions. I checked the extended weather forecast and it looks like it is cold (considering i am from Florida :> ) What type of coats are used at this time of the year-- is it like a trench coat, sweater, a heavier coat..? Any suggestions about packing is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Now that I have decided to visit Belfast, Dublin and will end up in Shannon, I am looking for some places where tourists will be far and few between. I have looked at Cork, Killarney, Galway and these places seem to be nothing but tourist oriented. I would like to find some small towns/cities/villages where I can spend a couple of days and hopefully not see tourists over running the area.
Hello everyone! I'm trying to make my way to Dingle in the best time possible. My plane doesn't arrive in Dublin until 13:20, so I know that I'm missing any plane I might catch to Kerry Airport, but is there any way to fly to Cork airport from Dublin and then take a bus (or train) to Dingle/Tralee? Or if not, is a bus or train faster when leaving from Dublin airport? I realize neither of those options are as fast as a plane--but I DO want to get there sooner rather than later. Thank you so much for anyone taking the time to answer this, I appreciate it a lot!
