    • 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!

      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.

    • Cork or Limerick?

      by midnightfever Online Now Jul 2, 2012 at 1:26 PM

      Hello everybody,

      I have the choice between staying one night in Cork or in Limerick.

      What would you recommend?

      What is important to us:

      budget accomodation
      good nightlife
      good choice of happy hours
      lower price level

      Should we stay in Limerick or Cork for our last night?
      We have a rental car and need to be at Shannon airport by 3 pm, so I thought in case we stay at Cork we need to leave by noon?

      Thank you and greetings!

      Which city is more worth seeing, Galway or Limerick? Unfortunately my time is limited and I can only afford one day in one of this cities.

      I'd spent two nights in the selected city using it as a base for a daytrip to Cliffs of Moher, the other day would be free for sightseeing...

    • Limerick to Shannon Airport Transportation

      by louiserausa Online Now Jul 17, 2009 at 9:28 PM

      Earlier this evening I asked for information about getting from the city of Limerick to the airport in the city of Shannon, in order to make an Aer Lingus flight to London that leaves SHANNON Airport at 0845, on September 3rd. I requested information on reliable shuttle service, taxi or bus, that was reasonably cost effective.

      While I appreciated the detailed reply I received, the directions were to the airport in Dublin and not Shannon. Could I try my question again, please? Thank you.

      day trip limerick to galway: poor idea?

      by oslonewcomer Online Now Jun 24, 2009 at 7:45 PM

      From Limerick, We're planning a couple days for excursions in county clare. The more I read about Bunratty, Adare, etc. the more they sound like tourist traps rather than somewhere I want to spend my few precious days in Ireland. So now we're thinking maybe a day trip to Galway. It looks like a 1 1/2 hour bus ride (can anyone advise CityLink vs. Bus Eireann?)
      We are more interested in people and life than in old castles (at least where it requires the better part of a day) does this seem like a reasonable use of time? Is Galway fairly compact and walkable (child and grandmother included in group)

I would appreciate any advise relating to skate parks in the area, places where skaters gather, rules relating to skating there ( where you can and can not skate ) and any laws relating to street skating in Limerick. I want this to be an awesome trip for them without the hassle of having to search for a place for them to skate and without worrying about breaking laws...(there are so many here in the USA that restrict skateboarding....wonder if it is a problem in Ireland too )..Also the location of skate shops in the area..I really would appreciate any information or advise....
