      Hi. I will be staying in Kyrenia but will need to go back and forth to Nicosia about 5 or 6 times. I will not have a car or be driving. Do the buses run regularly or is it better to get cabs? Thanks.

      by silverlady2 Online Now Jul 30, 2014 at 11:46 AM

      I am travelling to Kyrenia for a week from 28/9/14 to 5/10/14. With a party of amateur artists, (5 in all) we were to be accompanied by an English Art teacher who has unfortunately become unwell and can no longer join us. Is there any possibility of a few hours of art tuition in painting from a Kyrenian tutor on two or three occasions during this week.?

    • How has Kyrenia changed?

      by lilacwings Online Now Feb 18, 2010 at 7:52 AM

      Am planning to visit Kyrenia in June. Last visited about 10 years ago and found it a lovely, enchanting place. However... have just read a scarey couple of postings on TA which say that Kyrenia is much changed and not for the better, in particular, the poster said how run down it has become in recent years etc etc. Could anyone give me an honest appraisal of the situation before I make my final booking?

      Also, I was intending staying at Sammy's Hotel (can't stand 'posh' 5* ones!). Any comments on the hotel? And is it a walkable distance from the harbour? (Looks OK on the map, but maps can be misleading!).

      Any information you can give would be very, very gratefully received.

      Car hire advices?

      by petrkar Online Now Aug 25, 2005 at 6:20 AM

      We will go for holidays to northern Cyprus on Sep/Oct break. Browsing this discussion I came to conclusion that car hire is almost essential to spend time in TRNC meaningfuly. There are several companies tendering car-hire service on the web in Kyrenia vicinity, but some personal experience would be of great value. Is it better to make reservartion through net in advance or I would negotiate personally after arrival? Are the prices comparable or incommensurable? Which traps I would be aware of? Let me know, please, if somebody has really surpassing or awesome adventures.
      ... and the last, although petty question: what is the actual petrol price?

      Asking for tips from experienced...

      by petrkar Online Now Jul 26, 2005 at 9:23 AM

      We booked stay in Acapulco resort 8km from Kyrenia for this september. We choosed the north Cyprus hoping that touristic 'heavy-industry' doesn't touched it too irreconcilably. Nevertheless, we would like to have some information how to travel from that place (which appears to be remote spot, may be rather the sort of "touristic ghetto") to the Kyrenia, at least. We would prefer local public transportation, but we plan also to hire car for one/two days, if it is not too complicated or too expensive. Any advices (not only covering transportation) will be greatly appreciated!

      I am looking to book a holiday to Kyrenia at the end of November, and have a very reasonable quote from the "Villa Club Holiday Village". It looks great from the website, but does anyone have any first hand experience? Also, are there plenty of good restaurants in the vicinity (we're very keen eaters when we're on holiday!). Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks
