    • Killarney day tour Gap of Dunloe

      Ireland 16 hours ago

      Need some help please in planning a day sightseeing Gap of Dunloe area. Is it better to take this tour with guide or can it be done independently. I have been to Killarney a few times and am familiar with National Park and have some sightseeing tours.
      I read that there is a shuttle bus from tourist office and bus station that drops off tourists who are hiking the trails. I enjoy trails but not sure if I should join a tour or do the hiking and afterwards pick up the shuttle to get back to town or National Park. I will be in Killarney on August 17-18. Thanks for any suggestions.

    • 2 Nights B&B suggestions Dublin City 16-18 Aug 2016

      Dublin Jul 24, 2016 at 5:20 AM

      Hi There.

      I'm visiting Dublin City with my 77 year old Irish Mother for 2 day's on the above dates.

      We wont have a car this trip, so a central location (within a 5 mile radius) is very important.

      (Don't want to do any Airbnb, Hostels or Hotels).

      We're just looking for a simple affordable B&B with 2 sinlgle rooms, (if thing's could be busy, then we'd settle for 1 room with 2 single beds type of thing).

      Ideally we'd be looking for something circa €50-€70 each per night

      Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly apprciated.

      TIA :-)

    • Ordering one way ticket online

      Ireland Jul 25, 2016 at 10:42 AM

      I'm trying to buy a one way ticket on Iarnrod Eireann official site without success. Want travel on early train Killarney to Dublin Connolly station where I can connect with express bus service to Donegal. on August 19. I only need a one way ticket so I want to check the fare, standard class and first class since its early morning.

      I have received my Open Roads bus pass already which will cover second leg of journey. If I can order it online I feel I might get a better price. Also the ticket office in Killarney might not be open when I arrive after 7am.

      Had this experience before. Walked to the Killarney station one Saturday morning to buy a ticket to travel next day to Dublin and was told by a conductor that the ticket office is closed all weekend. Did not expect to hear this in summer peak season in a big tourist hub like Killarney.

      Any help please getting my ticket in advance. Thank you. Kate

      Itinerary help please

      Ireland Jul 8, 2016 at 8:07 AM

      My husband and I have 24 nights to travel around Ireland and then spend 4 or 5 nights in Dublin-yeah!! We are mature folks-not into partying except to hear music at the pubs. We have rented a car in Dublin and plan to bring it back there.This will be the end of Aug and mostly September.

      We love exploring and don't want to be rushed. We'd rather spend a few days in one spot and not be in a different place very night. We love to walk, wander, get lost, meet locals, listen to music, hear some stories.Paul's mother was Irish but we don't know much more than that.

      We want to see Newgrange, Connemarra, Cliffs of Moher, Wicklow mountains

      We are thinking of:
      Meath area-2 night
      Sligo-2 night
      Westport-2 nights
      Doolin or Ennis-1 or 2 nights
      Galway-2 nights
      Dingle-5 nights
      Portmagee-3 nights-we booked a Skellig Michael landing tour!
      Kinmare-3 nights
      Cork-3 nights
      Kilkenny-1 night
      Bray-1 night

      Can we combine any of these so not to overlap too much? Any advice is welcome.

      Thank you
      Paula

      Walking near Clifden?

      by Jennyjump79 Online Now Sep 14, 2004 at 5:43 PM

      Hi! I'm heading to Ireland in November and am thinking of spending a night or two in Clifden. I'd really like to get out and do some walking or biking while I'm there (yup, I know-- it's November.) The guide books I've found all suggest walking either the lower or higher Sky Road. Has anyone done this? How strenuous of a walk is it? I'm a pretty avid walker, but I'm not very experienced when it comes to hiking and difficult terrain-- should I stick to the lower road? Lastly, should I be concerned about being alone in this area? I've travelled solo to cities before, but this is my first time venturing outside a metro area by myself. Any advice would be a big help!
