    • 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.

    • Hiring a private driver

      Ireland Nov 22, 2016 at 9:51 AM

      Has anyone ever hired a private driver in Ireland? This would be done in lieu of renting a car. Is it expensive? Recommended? I'm planning a drip that goes from Dublin south around the shore up to Galway and back to Dublin. This would probably be done in a week's time. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

    • Waterford Worth it?

      Ireland Nov 8, 2016 at 5:54 AM

      I am travelling to Ireland next May and will be there for about 10 days. Due to time constraints my friend and I are going to be staying in the southern part of the country. I love Waterford Crystal and would like to go tour the factory and store. However, it seems that there isn't much else there to see so I'm not sure if we'd spend the night there. We will be travelling by train and it doesn't look like there is anywhere to store luggage for a few hours. With our limited time, is it worth it to go to Waterford? Are there other things we shouldn't miss there that I'm missing? Just for reference, we're planning to spend 3 nights in Dublin and then also hit Cork, Limerick, either Ennis or Shannon, visit the Cliffs of Moher, go to Galway and then make our way back to Dublin. What do you think? Should we go to Waterford? Thank you for any help you can give.

      Kilkenny Jan 14, 2009 at 11:57 AM

      Hi, my friend and I plan to travel from Kilkenny to Dingle. We will NOT be renting a car. We will stay 1 night in Kilkenny and next morning go to Rock of Cashel and then onto Dingle. I am hoping there is a bus that goes to Rock of Cashel from Kilkenny. However, I don't know if we should return to Kilkenny to take a train to Tralee, or maybe Killarney? And then bus into Dingle from either of these two cities? Or, is there a bus from Cashel into Dingle?

      Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

      Kilkenny to Dublin by rail - day trip

      Kilkenny Mar 8, 2007 at 9:21 AM

      Hi -we're looking at booking a package from the U.S. that'll be going to Killarney (4 nights) and Kilkenny (3 nights) but not signing up for any of the additional day tours in favor of doing all of our sightseeing on our own. Hate the tours - they herd you through too much. in too short a time, with too many people!

      Anyway, we'll only have two full days in Kilkenny and I figure we'd take one to explore the town, and I'd like to spend the second day in Dublin. I'd like to go by rail as it's probably fastest. Has anyone done this, is it difficult to figure out, and will we have enough time to hit the high spots of Dublin? I figure it may take and hour and a half or so to get there? Am looking at first train out - probably last train back. Appreciate any advice/insight you could throw my way!!

I wanted to find out the name of the group and how I could purchase one of their cd's. I am pretty sure I was there either June 28 or 29. Thank you very much in advance for your help.

    • Summer in Kilkenny

      County Kilkenny May 24, 2006 at 1:00 PM

      Hi everyone,
      I will spent the whole summer in Kilkenny, from June to September.
      I just wanted to ask a few questions about living there.

      Has anybody some tips to find a studio flat or a sharing for this period?
      Do you know some places where I could stay during my first days there (hotel or B&B. What are the average prices of them?).

      I will work in the Industrial & Business Park (Purcellsinch). Is it far from the center or not? Are there any bus services which lead to this area?

      I will welcome any comment or tip which could help me to spend a good summer!
      Thanks a lot!

      Manu.

      Country house accommodation

      County Kilkenny Aug 16, 2005 at 7:59 AM

      We are headed to Cork next week but I would like to stop part way to spend one night (my birthday!) in the Kilkenny area. I would like to stay in a country house type place or perhaps a farmhouse, preferably someplace that does really nice meals (or isn't too far from a good restaurant). Any ideas? I have found a few places but they are either really expensive (we would prefer not to spend more than EUR50 each) or they require a minimum 2 nights.

      Many thanks
