Hi everyone! My fiancee & I will be arriving in Shannon on 7/3/6, renting a car and plan to drive from Shannon through all local areas (especially Wexford & Longford since that's where my grandparents are from),making a complete circle and leaving frm Shannon on 7/12. I am a wee bit nervous about not having anything really scheduled (such as hotels), can anyone recommend sites to see or places to stay. I would hate to arrive in Shannon after traveling all the way frm Ft. Lauderdale,Florida and not have a place to stay. HELP!!!

hi, i am a backpacking college student flying into shannon and looking for a cheap place to pitch my tent for this Wednesday night. Anybody know of a good campground or any suggestions at all? thanks so much for any help.
We are thinking of using the cheap flights to Shannon for 4 nights late May. I can get nice accomodation in either of the above but not knowing the areas I am unsure which to go for. We want a central place from which to sightsee by car but plenty of pubs etc within walking distance for the evenings. We also need activities for kids and teenagers! So which place is the best for our needs.
I'll need to drive from Galway on a Tuesday morning to Shannon airport. I have a 10am flight. Assuming I need to be there at 8:30, how long is the drive from Galway ? Is morning traffic an issue ? Thanks! MP
please help - we're flying into shannon airiport, & have no idea where to stay or what to do. I booked a hotel (Clarion) in Limerick, but I hear that Limerick is not that safe or pretty, & I'm worried. Also, I don't know whether to go down to the Killarney area or up to the Galway area to signtsee. Someone mentioned Adare, Bunratty and Ennis as possible places to see, but we'll not have a car, & have to rely on either buses or trains. Can anyone suggest a suggested itinerary? also, should we change our Limerick location to something better? PLEASE HELP. Thanks.
we have three days to spend, and are flying into shannon airport. We are a couple in our mid-50s, and need to plan some kind of itinerary for these days.It was suggested that we stay in Limerick as a home base, & travel to Adare, Bunratty & maybe even Galway? Does this sound like a good plan? Also, we need to see if buses & trains are readily available, as we don't drive. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks,
When is the best time of year to visit Ireland? I don't want to go when it is cold.
Hi there !!! I've just booked 2 plane tickets to Shannon and, as a matter of fact, I don't have a clue where to stay in there. I and my boyfriend are staying only for one night (or two) and we are looking for a really cheap accomodation, as this "trip" was unplanned - the pane tickets were really chep and I wanted to visit Ireland so much ;) We will be in there in the beggining of february, so we have plenty of time to think ... But still I think it would be easier to know a little from you. Greetings, Dagmara
My boyfriend and I have booked flights for a 5 day trip to Shannon at the end of October/start of November. We haven't booked anywhere to stay yet, but have been looking at guesthouses in Limerick. Our price range is about £40-£50 per ROOM, per night. Does anyone recommend anywhere? Also, what must-see attractions are there in the region? We probably won't have a car.
Flying into Shannon day before my travel companion. Any suggestions on what I should do? Also, if there much to see north of Shannon between Clare Island and Dublin or should we just focus on the south part? Will only be there little over 1 week.
Hi all, in my enthusiasm about finding a cheap flight to Ireland I didn't really notice that my return flight is at 7 in the morning from Shannon. Does anybody know if there is a chance to get to the airport that early? If not, how is it to sleep at that airport, any experiences? It's such a great thing to book flights... Steffi
