    • 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.

      Skerries 100 races

      by Musquy Online Now Apr 18, 2006 at 4:06 PM

      Thanks to those who've posted here & elsewhere, I now know how & when to get to Skerries, have a map of the town, an idea of where the racing takes place, and a map. of sorts, of the course.
      I've also found websites for the local tourist office and for the club that runs the racing.
      What I still need to know is what time the racing takes place (even approx., i.e. is it all day, all afternoon, evening only?), a map showing the route from town to the races (I've sort of worked it out, but I'd like to know from which side I approach the racing), and are all parts of the course generally accessible, i.e. can I walk round to various vantage points, go & have a nosey around the paddock, etc.?
      Any info & advice welcome. IoM TT veteran, but new to the Irish races.

      (Also posted in Co. Dublin forum, as I wasn't sure Skerries would be listed separately - & didn't look; first indication of need for advice!)
      I fancy going to the Skerries motorcycle races in 2006. I'm a veteran of the IOM TT and have heard good things about the Skerries.
      I'll be using public transport, rather than a bike. I understand it's possible to do this by Ferry from Holyhead, then train from Dun Laoghaire, and to fit this into a (long) day. I'd prefer to make a weekend of it. Any advice re accommodation and transport links? Does everything get booked up early? Is camping an option, and if so where?

      Any advice would be welcome. Thanks
