    • Killarney day tour Gap of Dunloe

      Ireland Jul 28, 2016 at 6:12 PM

      Need some help please in planning a day sightseeing Gap of Dunloe area. Is it better to take this tour with guide or can it be done independently. I have been to Killarney a few times and am familiar with National Park and have some sightseeing tours.
      I read that there is a shuttle bus from tourist office and bus station that drops off tourists who are hiking the trails. I enjoy trails but not sure if I should join a tour or do the hiking and afterwards pick up the shuttle to get back to town or National Park. I will be in Killarney on August 17-18. Thanks for any suggestions.

    • Traveling with tour to Copenhagen, Norway, Sweden returning to Dublin/JFK

      Ireland Aug 8, 2016 at 12:40 PM

      Arriving into Ireland end of next week August and need advice on best method to purchase foreign currencies for my tour. I contacted Irish Bank today which was a waste of time. They could not place my order which I would pay for with Debit in Euros and pick up on arrival. Said I would need to visit the branch and complete order forms. Then advised the bank only handles money to use in Sweden. This did not help either as Stockholm will be the last stopover before leaving on return flight to Dublin and on to JFK.

      Will travel on A/F flight to Copenhagen to join tour. I need to have some money to use in Denmark on arrival in case I take a taxi or train getting to hotel. I am arriving on a Saturday and need advice please on best way to get the currencies.

      I know there are foreign exchange kiosks at most airports but not sure if one can purchase currency using Euros debit card. Some meals are included and paid for on tour. I need to have some money on arrival in Copenhagen. Is it easy to get money at airports?
      Will visit Killarney for 3 nights mid week on arrival, then Donegal Town for 2 and one night near Dublin before I begin the tour. Know that the banks in Ireland are closed on Saturday so greatlyl appreciate help with this matter please. Thank you.

      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?

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?
