    • Mountjoy Street - Dublin

      Dublin Nov 14, 2016 at 6:35 AM

      I will be visiting Dublin starting tomorrow. My hostel is located on Mountjoy street, and recently I've read mixed review about the location. Generally this doesn't affect me, since I'm mostly a daytime traveler and tend to avoid unsafe areas/crowds. However, tomorrow I would be arriving around 9pm. My initial plan was to walk on foot from O'Connel Bridge, but in the light of the reviews I've read, I'm not so sure anymore. What do you recommend? Is there a real risk of getting mugged/attacked?

      Also, any other safety advice would be highly appreciated.

      Thanks a lot.

      Using Aircoach from Dublin airport to Fitzpatrick Castle

      Dalkey Aug 30, 2016 at 9:44 AM

      I will be visiting Dublin in a couple of weeks and was wanting to possibly use the Aircoach from the airport. My wife, daughter and their luggage (a lot) will be coming...along with my carry-on. I was wondering if the Aircoach to Fitzpaterick Castle goes to the hotel lobby parking area or drops people off at the bottom of hill...if so, taxi or Uber it is...we're talking about a lot of luggage.
      Thanks, Walt

    • 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 :-)

      Immigrating to Dublin Questions

      Dublin Mar 29, 2016 at 5:29 AM

      Good day,

      I'm Immigrating to Ireland from South Africa with my husband and 4 year old. We will be living in Dublin, and my son and I will arrive end of June.

      South Africa gets really hot so my closet is filled with clothes for hot weather (30 degrees Celsius). I need to decide which of our clothes we will need to take with as we only have 2 suitcases of 23kg each to take with and need to plan according to Dublin weather.

      I know winters get really cold, so my winter clothes i will definitely take, but is it worth taking summer clothes at all?

      Sorry all for the strange question :)

      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!
