    • Shipping a pet and luggage

      Dublin Jan 30, 2017 at 1:42 AM

      Hello dear friends! In few weeks i will be traveling to Dublin and i will stay there for 3 months so i have to take my dogs (2 German Shepards) and a lot of stuff to the destination place. As i will be traveling from germany i guess taking it all on the plane would cost fortune. So I'm planning to ship my pets and majority of clothes etc ahead (my friend will be already there). I never shiped an animal so I dont hace any idea how to do it. Have you ever done this before?

      How to get from Dublin to Dingle

      by Keely27 Online Now Jun 6, 2013 at 11:36 PM

      Hello everyone! I'm trying to make my way to Dingle in the best time possible. My plane doesn't arrive in Dublin until 13:20, so I know that I'm missing any plane I might catch to Kerry Airport, but is there any way to fly to Cork airport from Dublin and then take a bus (or train) to Dingle/Tralee? Or if not, is a bus or train faster when leaving from Dublin airport? I realize neither of those options are as fast as a plane--but I DO want to get there sooner rather than later. Thank you so much for anyone taking the time to answer this, I appreciate it a lot!

    • Booking accomodation as you go

      by Jefpit Online Now Apr 28, 2013 at 6:39 PM

      Will it be hard to find decent accomodation in the west coast area if you book as you go? We're travelling there in august and worry if we book now we'll not be able to go to places we might discover on the way, or if we like a place and would stay longer, we'd be out of luck if we booked ahead.

      Lodging in Dingle

      by nalmassy Online Now Jun 16, 2012 at 11:16 AM

      We are planning a trip to Ireland, and want to stay in Dingle for two nights in July. Would it be recommend to stay in town, or on the outskirts? Would being in town not allow for a peaceful nights sleep? And is parking difficult? One lodging I'm looking into is on Connor Pass, another in Milltown, another in The Wood. Any suggestions as to the "best" spot?

    • Trying to find the Dingle gift shop that sells Wooden Sheep with Sheep's Wool

      by gram2aandj Online Now Dec 18, 2010 at 5:14 PM

      I was in Ireland with my husband in November 2010 and saw the sweetest sheep in a craft/gift shop window. The shop was closing and I didn't want to intrude, so I left not getting one of those adorable little guys!

      Since I've been home I could just kick myself for not going ahead and getting one right then. I can't remember the name of the shop. If anyone knows where I can find them or the name of the store would be would be so appreciated!! Hopefully I can order one.

    • Transportation Help! Kilkenny to Dingle

      by jenjuhn Online Now Jan 14, 2009 at 11:56 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!

      Honeymoon in Dingle

      by dikfox Online Now Feb 9, 2007 at 11:06 AM

      I went through Dingle a couple years ago and fell in love. I have convinced the bride to be to spend 4 or 5 days here in the middle of March. How is the weather this time of year (we are both from sunny Florida) and is it better to fly into Shannon or Cork? I have never rented a car in Ireland (was too young before) but have decided to have a go this time round. What would be a couple great day trips from this area? She loves towns lined with old, beautiful buildings. This is her first time out of the country, so I want this trip to convince her to come back the following year for a couple of weeks. Thank you for any suggestions or advice.

      Drive Dingle Peninsula or Ring of Kerry - Pick one or the other...

      by DWMMLM Online Now Jun 29, 2006 at 9:28 AM

      We will be traveling to Ireland in Oct. and would like to know if we should skip the Ring of Kerry for a more manageable drive of the Dingle Peninsula. Time is really not an issue, but if our experience will be similar with several hours less in the car, then I would choose to use those other hours for more productive items like pub crawling.
