      1st time visit to Ireland

      Ireland 1 hours ago

      I've posted a couple of times before this one for me and my husbands 1st trip to Ireland in September. We have decided to add a bit of extra time to our trip so we won't feel so rushed and can enjoy what Ireland has to offer.

      We'll be arriving in Dublin on Saturday, September 10th at 10:40 a.m., and will stay in Dublin for 2 nights, Saturday and Sunday.

      Here's what I have for a route.....I seem to have an extra day tho and not sure how to fill it. Should I add an extra day to a place I have already, or is there another place I should add into our route?

      Monday - Drive to Kilkenny, stay 1 night Tuesday - Drive to Cork, stay 2 nights Thursday - Drive to Dingle, stay 2 nights Saturday - Drive to Ennis, stay 1 night Sunday - Drive to Galway, stay 2 nights Tuesday - not sure about this day Wednesday - Drive to Dublin, leaving for home the next day

      Thanks so much for your time and any suggestions you may have :)

      Mc Donagh a thatched bar in Oranmore by Galway, is Oranmore worth the stop?

      Oranmore Jan 10, 2016 at 12:47 PM

      Mc Donagh a thatched bar in Oranmore by Galway, is it worth the stop? We love Galway and the area and will be going there on our next trip and want to take in some nice old pubs. Has any one been there? We saw it pictured in a newspaper article and looks great from the outside. Can you recommend a hotel or B&B in Oranmore?

      Hiking this Summer

      Ireland Jan 24, 2016 at 2:51 AM

      We plan to go hiking in Ireland this summer: No specific plan but with the start and finish of a not too distant airport (or possibly a large station).
      Eight days walking with luggage transport would be ideal. Does anyone has any suggestions?

      Identifying Artifacts Christ Church Cathedral

      Dublin Jan 11, 2016 at 4:19 PM

      I recently visited Dublin while on a European vacation. On the sidewalks outside of the Christ Church Cathedral, I noticed painted squares that contained "artifacts" embedded in the sidewalk. I took photos but I have been unable to learn what these are, what they represent or the history behind them. I loved Ireland and hopefully I will be able to visit again; everyone was so friendly and helpful. Thank you!

      1st time visit to Ireland

      Ireland Jan 31, 2016 at 8:36 PM

      I was wondering if I could get some input on the following possible route to cover while my husband and I are in Ireland for our first time.

      We will arrive in Dublin on Sunday, September 11th (10:40am) and plan to spend the Sunday and Monday night there. Then thinking about the following route:

      Dublin > Galway
      Galway > Limerick
      Limerick > Dingle
      Dingle > Kenmare
      Kenmare > Cork
      Cork > Waterford
      Waterford > Dublin

      Staying in Dublin on the 20th as we leave at 7:40 am on the 21st from Dublin to go back home to Ontario, Canada.
      Is this a recommended and do-able route without feeling rushed?? Are we missing something that should absolutely be on our route? Is there a place on that route that really shouldn't be?

      Our interests are seeing the great views, any hidden treasures, listening to the Traditional Music, and of course, enjoying the wonderful food and great pubs!

      Any input, suggestions for sites to visit, accomodations along our way (noting the towns and cities we should stay in and maybe the ones we should avoid??

      I've have been given some wonderful and informative information so far, but, now with doing a bit more research, I'm changing it up a bit and would like any thoughts on it.

      We appreciate any information that is provided and we thank you for that.

      Judy :)

      Castle hotel

      Dublin Jan 18, 2016 at 3:23 AM

      My mother recently had an anniversary and we are planning to make a weekend (3-4 days) trip in June as a celebration. She would like to preferably stay in a castle or on a castle area not to far from Dublin. Even Edinburgh and the area around could be an option. Close proximity to a castle where it is possible to visit is the second best option. could help us narrow down would be great! Does anyone have any suggestions? From what I have seen, we are

      We have started to search around on the internet, but none of the 4 of us know these areas very well and all ideas that looking at something mid to low budget.

      Itinerary for Ireland

      Ireland Jan 22, 2016 at 9:42 AM

      Hi Guys,
      I am just starting my plan for Ireland and I don't really know where to begin. I have done England, France and Italy on my own using public transportation, but I'm not sure if I can do this to visit Ireland. I really know nothing about it, really not even what we would want to see, but would like to take my Mom and the guided tours were very expensive. Thank you for your help.

      Car hire in Galway

      Galway Jan 9, 2016 at 12:03 PM

      Hello all
      I have a couple of French friends who are visiting Galway soon and they would like to know the best option for care hire in the city. Can anyone recommend the best place with the best rates?
      Also, the guys are quite young, early 20's, so is that an issue for them to hire? As long as they have full licenses for over 12 months then it should be ok, right?
      Thank you all :)

      1st time visit to Ireland

      Ireland Jan 18, 2016 at 7:32 PM

      After receiving a few answers to my first question, I have put together an itinerary (not sure about how it works), so, I would like some input to see if it's feasible, if it's a good plan, giving us enough time to see Ireland without feeling rushed (planning to be there 10 or 11 nights), and seeing the most of what Ireland has to offer. Am I missing somewhere that we should absolutely visit? stay?? Once a route has been decided, we will then decide where to stay and for how long.

      Please feel free to offer your opinion on which towns we should spend more times in than others, that will determine where we should look for accomodations.

      • Landing in Dublin on Monday, September 5th, early morning. I think we'd like 2 full days there
      • Over to Bray, then Wicklow.
      • Drive to Kilkenny
      • Drive to Cork
      • Over to Killarney
      • To Shannon
      • Then back to Dublin to fly home (which is Ontario, Canada)

      Thanks every so much for your time and contribution to make a wonderful and memorable trip to Ireland for us! :)

      1st time visit to Ireland

      Ireland Jan 17, 2016 at 11:49 AM

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Ireland in September, 2016. We are wanting to stay 10 or 11 nights, landing in Dublin and wanting to plan a driving route to see Ireland. I'm looking for advice as to what route to take and what places we should visit, without feeling rushed. We are planning to rent a car (but not in Dublin) and would like to see and visit the recommended sites, along with going off the beaten path too.

      One recommended route I've seen in my online travels is Dublin>Bray>Kilkenny>Kenmare>Killarney>Dingle>Shannon, and flying home from Shannon (back to Ontario, Canada). Any thoughts on that route? We definately would like to spend 2 or 3 days in Dublin.

      Any suggested routes would be much appreciated! :)

      Thanks so much!
