    • 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?

    • Great Atlantic Way day tour

      Donegal Jun 16, 2016 at 10:43 AM

      Hoping to include a few days in Donegal end of August. Have been to Donegal previously and enjoyed a day tour which was very scenic years ago.

      I recently discovered the Great Atlantic Way day tour which is listed on Buseireann tourist pass site. Has anyone taken this day trip? There is little availability in hotels in Donegal town end of August so hoping to find accommodation at B&B for one night. Also interested in visiting Glenveagh National Park as I enjoy hiking trails and photography. Looks like Glenveagh is closer to Letterkenny and have spoken to tourist who spent several days in Donegal on escorted tour that had Letterkenny as base. Said hotel was good and a short walk into town. I will not have a car rental and need help planning for the 2 day trips I hope to accomplish.

      I will be traveling from Killarney/Dublin to Donegal. If I can arrive Letterkenny with time to spend several hours in Glenveagh then continue late evening to Donegal town I might be able to join the Great Atlantic tour next morning. If necessary I would spend overnight in Donegal or close to route returning towards Dublin.
      Thanks to all the experts for any help available.

    • Ferry Timetable

      Tory Island Nov 27, 2010 at 8:30 PM

      Sorry the only web info from the ferry company seems to be in Gaelic.
      Can you please tell me (in English) the timetable for ferrying between Magheroarty and Tory Island in June 2011, in particular Monday 13/6/11.

      Is Magheroarty the same place as "Meenlaragh"?

      It seems the loop walk on the island is about 4 Km - ie 1 and a half hours.
      what abbreviated versions of a walk can to suggest?

      Thank you

      Could anyone please give me more info on car hire because I've realized the buses don't run too often, I'm afraid. What is the approximate price? I'm looking for the cheapest versions, so smaller car, for example. What's the daily/weekly rate?

      Also, could anyone please give me some more info on Carrigart. How come the bus runs only once a day? I hope I am mistaken. Also, are there any larger supermarkets in this village?

      Thank you in advance :)
