When I was a child my father took us to Ireland where he was from.
he took us to see our uncle (his older brother) Patrick who lived in Drogheda but the pics I see are not how I remember it, it may be that it was on the outskirts I remember is was very quiet not many dwellings in fact my uncles home was very basic single story dwelling and it had an old stem roller outside.
Just wondered if anyone has any clue as to where exactly this might have been long shot I know!
Traveling as a single female, I'm wondering if County Louth is a safe place to stay. Thus far, I see no reason why it wouldn't be.
Q: Should I stay 1 or 2 days?
Q: Is there anything to do other than see castles (which sounds wonderful, anyway)?
Q: I'm planning on starting my trip in Dublin and heading to Louth & Galway. Can I see the sites in Louth on foot, or will I need to drive?
Does anyone know about how much it would be for a taxi from Drogheda to Carlingford?
do you think 1800€net would be enough to live and save some?
Thanks in advance
Hi, I was wondering if Galaxy nightclub is still open in the town?
I've seen 2 websites with 2 different answers for the opening times for this abbey. One says it will close after August 28 2014 and the other says mid-September 2014. I tried emailing them but I don't think anyone is monitoring the emails at this time of year. Anyone know for sure? I'm trying to arrange flights from Canada to Dublin and the date is important since I'd rather come in September and not August. I guess you can't wander about the grounds off-season?
How would get from dundalk to drumcar, I'm really stuck because I've got placement at 8 tomorrow and noone from my class is willing to reply to my post on our class wall on fb. It has been seen -_-.. I know there aren't any direct buses but I would just like to know the route. Just to tell you that I'm from clare and that I know no where in dundalk or anywhere in louth. It's a bit of a short now and any reply between now and 6 in the morning would be much appreciated. Thanks :)
Hi I really want to come to Omeath, but me and my partner will be arriving at Dublin port and will have to make- by public transport- our way to a cottage in Omeath and need direction to get there, is it possible or no?
Just wondering of there are any underage discos for between 10-15 years old? If so, which are more popular?
I am moving to Charleville and I am looking to see if there are buses to drogheda
Advice welcomed. I'm hoping to go from Dublin to the Battle of the Boyne heritage site at Oldbridge, near Drogheda. Is it possible to walk from Drogheda bus or train station, i.e. how far is it? Bus Eireann told me that the Drogheda to Slane bus does not go near the entrance to the site. Also, where exactly is the entrance? Many thanks, GI Chuck, Cabinteely, Dublin 18.
I'm taking a day off work to see something special. I'm going on my own, and then I thought I'd open it up to all VT members. Short notice & unusual event, but who knows...
Laytown is near Drogheda. Once a year it holds a horse race meeting which is the same as anything you'll see at Longchamps, Epsom or Monmouth Park - except that it takes place on the beach at low tide. For more information look at www.goracing.ie and select the Laytown tab on the left.
First race is at 3pm. The 6th and last is at 5.30.
I'll be renting a small car at Dublin airport about 10am, and could take anyone who needs transport. I'll be having lunch somewhere near Drogheda.
Fancy something different?
i would like to visit cooley mountains,is it near to the mountain park carlingford.i am from drogheda co.louth pls give some information about this matter thank you
Our flight into Belfast was bumped ahead by one day, so we have a day and evening to spend somewhere within access of the *Dublin* airport where we fly out the next morning (need to be at the airport by 10am).
We will be relying on public transport, and were looking for a smaller town with friendly locals and charm, and are interested in staying in Carlingford. The morning bus doesn't put us in Dundalk in time to catch the express bus to the airport (@ 8:30am). Any idea of what a taxi would cost from C to D? The alternative would be to take the Aircoach out of Newry around the same time - what would a taxi fare be for C to N?
I hesitate to ask two more questions because they seem silly, but here goes:
Depending on weather, and since our inbound flights put us at Belfast International airport at an ungodly 5:10am, we were thinking of hopping on a train and doing a quick tour (bus drive) of the north Antrim coast. Doing so would delay our arrival in Carlingford to @ 5pm which in January will be after dark. Likewise, leaving Carlingford at 8am would be before sunrise. Silly question #1: is Carlingford 'pretty' at night - are the ruins lit up? Will it be worth traveling off the beaten track for an evening there? We will be tired, but Scott would like to have a traditional pub meal and some Guinness and conversation.
Of course if the weather is not conducive to touring the coast then we will be in Carlingford much earlier!
Silly question #2: Scott thinks that the only place to buy Guinness merchandise is the Guinness storehouse in Dublin - hats, sweaters (jumpers), etc. I would imagine that these things are prevalent throughout Ireland like our Molson Canadian stuff is here in Canada. If so, are there any place to avoid paying 'tourist' prices?
Any other suggestions?
