    • Shipping a pet and luggage

      Dublin Jan 30, 2017 at 1:42 AM

      Hello dear friends! In few weeks i will be traveling to Dublin and i will stay there for 3 months so i have to take my dogs (2 German Shepards) and a lot of stuff to the destination place. As i will be traveling from germany i guess taking it all on the plane would cost fortune. So I'm planning to ship my pets and majority of clothes etc ahead (my friend will be already there). I never shiped an animal so I dont hace any idea how to do it. Have you ever done this before?

    • Boat-Tour Cork harbour

      by Schulzi Online Now May 4, 2016 at 6:05 AM

      I am looking for a boat-tour from cork or near by. Also maybe even from cobh or crosshaven
      I want to see something from the river lee and the cork harbour, the area near cobh, and - if its possible - maybe even a little from the coast of the Celtic sea.

      Do you know some providers of such tours?

      In the web, i only found
      Cork Sea Safari (, but need to be a minimum of 10 persons.
      South Cost Tours (, but need to be a minimum of 5 persons.

      But we are only two people.
      Can you help me to find providers of boat-tours, that are something similar like this?

      with many thanks and greetings

We'll go to pubs in the evening then night clubs. But then I wonder if there would be some places open until very late (i mean until it's day time again) cause we plan to really party all night. Can you name some places which will be open all night long that night ?

    • Fota Island Sheraton

      by linneak Online Now Jul 19, 2013 at 8:26 AM

      We will be staying at the golf resort for a week, playing three days and exploring Cork, Kinsale, Cobh on the other days. One reason we picked the resort was the close proximity to the rail station, however we thought we'd be able to walk from the hotel to the rail station. Does anyone know if this is possible? Does the hotel have a shuttle, when does it run? If we spend the day in Cork will we be able to get back in the evening after dinner? or will we need a car after all?

    • Limerick or Cork ?

      by midnightfever Online Now Jul 2, 2012 at 1:23 PM

      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!
