    • Older Times in Drogheda

      Drogheda 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!

      Rent or lease car for 3 weeks in Ireland

      Ireland Sep 21, 2016 at 4:03 PM

      We are going to Ireland for three weeks in November (I know not the best weather ! ) I have heard that leasing a car is often less expensive than renting. Also with a lease insurance is often included and the taxes are far less than renting. Anyone have experience with leasing or other rent/lease advice?

      We arrive in Dublin and will spend most of our time in the North. This is our fourth trip to Ireland. Most of the other trips we didn't need a car. The last time we rented a car there was many years ago in the early 70's.

      Any advice is much appreciated.

      Train from Dublin to Belfast

      Ireland Oct 5, 2016 at 10:09 AM

      We are going to Ireland in November and will be taking Irish Rail train from Dublin to Belfast. Is it necessary or advantageous to book those tickets in advance? I am a little hesitant to do that and lock into a departure time because we will be taking a bus from Dublin Airport to the Dublin train station. While flight is sceduled to arrive at 7AM who knows when we would eventually get to the station. I am thinking it might just be easier to buy tickets at train station. Would the Dubin-Belfast train be that crowded in November? Any advice would be most welcome.

    • Is Ennis a good base for hiking?

      by sandistarr Online Now Aug 16, 2016 at 6:00 AM

      I'll be flying into and out of Shannon and have 3 full days. I am on foot - no car. Would like to see towns, music and hiking. Is the bus service from Ennis good enough to get to good hiking (Burrens, coasts, etc) that I can use Ennis as my base town? Thank you :)

      Im from the united states and I am going to ireland for a few weeks. One of the places that I am staying at is Ennis and I would like to know what the night life is for my sister (17) and I (20). What is the drinking age? How old do you have to be to get into the bars? Is parking a problem? Or anything that you might think to help us enjoy the night life in Ireland.

      Any Cusak Park Events 18 or 19 Aug 2007 ???

      by MikeInPennsylnvania Online Now Feb 17, 2007 at 8:22 AM

      My son and I will be in Ennis on 18 Aug 2007 and are currently scheduled to fly home on 19 Aug. I have not been able to locate any scheduled events for that weekend. An Irish friend states that football games are played mostly on Sundays and that a hurling match may also occur on the same day. If there are no events on the 18th and there would be on the 19th, I am willing to change our flight and leave on the 20th (paying a penalty).

      Any information to help me make a decision would be greatly appreciated.

    • Ennis-Burren area

      by romavick Online Now May 30, 2006 at 9:53 AM

      Hi. My friend and I are planning our trip to Ireland for this summer. I want to make sure that I don't miss the Burren area, including Cliffs of Moher. We will be coming from Killarney or Dingle (not sure yet). I was wondering if Ennis is a good town to use as a home base for a day or two to visit the Cliffs and Burren area. Or--should a different town be used. We'll have three days in Galway, but one of those is probably going to be an Aran Islands day....
      From Killarney, we are still not sure about where to go next--Dingle? Tralee? Ennis? Our main priority is to not lose days on a bus as we get to the next spot....

      Any words of advice? Thanks!

      I will be in Ennis the 2nd week of February. I have my hotel planned and will be walking around the town. I am doing research and would like to get to Ennistymon and Lahinch. I am not renting a car, so I would appreciate any suggestions on the least costly way to travel. If there is a tour that would go to the Burren and Doolin that would also be of interest.

      Any other suggestions about things to do, places to eat are welcome. Thanks
