    • 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?

      I'll be flying into and out of Shannon and have 3 full days. I am on foot - no car. Would like to see towns, music and hiking. Is the bus service from Ennis good enough to get to good hiking (Burrens, coasts, etc) that I can use Ennis as my base town? Thank you :)

      Lisdoonnvara Matchmaker Festival DO or DON'T ?

      Lisdoonvarna Jun 28, 2015 at 7:32 AM

      Hello. I've recently reconnected with my mother's cousin and extended family in Roscommon, Ireland and am planning a trip this September with my sister. We'll be flying out of Shannon Airport after spending some time on the west coast and thought we might end the trip with a stop in Lisdoonvarna while the festival is going on. It looks like it could be alot of fun with great music and such. We're not really interested in the matchmaking angle, but...not totally opposed to that either :) I'd be happy to hear any opinions on this as well as any suggestions as a last night stop before leaving for Shannon Airport in the morning (11 am flight)

      First trip to Ireland coming up in June, and I'm a violinist with a soft spot for Celtic music. Planning to spend a night in Doolin listening to pub music. My question is this--what are some of the most common songs played in this setting? If I were able to convince someone to let me join in, I'd like to learn a few of them in advance! :) Thanks!

      Doolin Feb 23, 2012 at 2:19 PM

      Spending a few days, of the 10 I have in the area, in Doolin this coming Spring, and I'm wondering which pub would be most fun to celebrate my birthday (June 2) at. Hoping for a place that offers good food, good music and a lively crowd. I'm a Canuck (Canadian) and this will be my first time in beautiful Ireland. I have been told that either McGann's or McDermott's would be good bets. Anyone have any opinions on either?
