    • Dublin airport: B&B overnight

      Ireland 17 hours ago

      Looking for a B&B close to airport for 1 night early September. Have stayed at most hotels in airport area but because of higher prices and some with no breakfast included, looking to stay in B&B that is not far from airport and would prefer one on the city bus route from city. Any recommendations, will be appreciated. Thank you.

    • 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 :-)

    • Should we book our tours before we get to Dublin

      Dublin 12 hours ago

      My wife and I are traveling from Newfoundland to Dublin form Aug 8-16 for my wife 50th birthday. We are wonder if we should book defore or when we get to Dublin. There are so many tour company's and all we want is to book with a good company and have fun.

    • Ordering one way ticket online

      Ireland 20 hours ago

      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

      Car hire in Galway

      Hello all
      I have a couple of French friends who are visiting Galway soon and they would like to know the best option for care hire in the city. Can anyone recommend the best place with the best rates?
      Also, the guys are quite young, early 20's, so is that an issue for them to hire? As long as they have full licenses for over 12 months then it should be ok, right?
      Thank you all :)

I have found a place to stay the first few days, but I am desperate to find a place in the city centre from the 26th of December to the 8th of January. It would be the best Christmas present for us. Anyone knows of a cheap comfy place that could be rented for those days? I hope Santa hears me, we have been very good all year round...

      I plan to visit Letterfrack and Connemara National Park for a few days in the end of February. When I am there I would like to do some hikes and I wonder how easy it is to find good hiking trails walking out of Letterfrack.

      So far I have found out that Diamond Hill is a good hike to do from Letterfrack, but then I don’t know. Are there any other good hikes starting in Letterfrack?

      Kylemore Abbey is situated a few kilometers from Letterfrack. Is there a trail between Letterfrack and Kylemore Abbey?

      One day it would be nice to walk along the coast, but then it must at a place I can reach by bus. Maybe the Sky Road out of Clifden. Any suggestions?
