    • 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.

    • Older Times in Drogheda

      by CChristineP Online Now Oct 9, 2016 at 5:50 PM

      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!

      Getting to Battle of the Boyne heritage site by foot, bus or bike?

      by Gichuck Online Now May 31, 2010 at 8:59 AM

      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.

      Laytown races...

      by iaint Online Now Aug 29, 2008 at 5:16 AM

      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?
