    • 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?

      by poet123 Online Now Apr 26, 2006 at 9:39 AM

      We are thinking of using the cheap flights to Shannon for 4 nights late May. I can get nice accomodation in either of the above but not knowing the areas I am unsure which to go for. We want a central place from which to sightsee by car but plenty of pubs etc within walking distance for the evenings. We also need activities for kids and teenagers! So which place is the best for our needs.

      please help - we're flying into shannon airiport, & have no idea where to stay or what to do. I booked a hotel (Clarion) in Limerick, but I hear that Limerick is not that safe or pretty, & I'm worried. Also, I don't know whether to go down to the Killarney area or up to the Galway area to signtsee. Someone mentioned Adare, Bunratty and Ennis as possible places to see, but we'll not have a car, & have to rely on either buses or trains.
      Can anyone suggest a suggested itinerary? also, should we change our Limerick location to something better? PLEASE HELP.

      we have three days to spend, and are flying into shannon airport. We are a couple in our mid-50s, and need to plan some kind of itinerary for these days.It was suggested that we stay in Limerick as a home base, & travel to Adare, Bunratty & maybe even Galway? Does this sound like a good plan? Also, we need to see if buses & trains are readily available, as we don't drive.
      Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated.
