    • 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.

      How to get around

      by jpianosi Online Now Jul 29, 2014 at 3:47 AM

      Hi VTs. We are spending about a week in Ireland next summer and will be staying in the countryside about 40km southwest of Sligo. What is the best way for us to travel so we can see the best of Ireland in that week? Driving is OK, but I'd like to be able to do some whiskey tasting, and enjoy the pubs, so alternate ideas are welcome. We will be 4 adults, and at the end of the week, we'll be leaving from Dublin.

      Thank you!

      After spending a week horsebackriding in the Sligo area, we have 5 days to travel to other areas of Ireland. Are there specific modes of travel from Sligo that make it easy to see other areas. We will be arriving from Dublin by train to Sligo, so would like to go to the Spainish Point area, but am not sure how to get there from Sligo since we will not have a car. Or, should we head to another area. We are very flexible. Are there car rentals in Sligo that allow us to drop off the car in Dublin where we will be flying home? ANy type of information or suggestions would be appreciated? This is our first visit abroad to Ireland.

    • lodging near sligo train station

      by seyahat Online Now Jun 7, 2009 at 8:57 PM

      Can anyone recommend a hotel or B&B in Sligo that is not too far from the train station? (Unless the train station is in a dreadful part of town that you'd discourage staying in.) Main concerns are something accessible to my 93-year-old mom who uses a push walker and can't do a lot of stairs at one time. Did you have occasion to use either taxi or bus from the station to the hotel or B&B? Do you recall the approximate cost?

      Going to Co. Sligo for three weeks this summer.I am an assistant to a writer and we will be doing research for a book while there. Where do you suggest we stay? We can stay anywhere in Co Sligo. Ideally, we would like to stay in a house in a village center where we can walk to eat, to a pub. We are open to all accommodations that offer comofort and have charm.

    • Has anyone ever been to Easkey south of Sligo?

      by betsyteeter Online Now Jul 10, 2004 at 9:57 AM

      My husband and I have rented a cottage in Easkey for our base as we explore the coast. I can't find much information on the town except that it's well known for surfing. We also plan on getting up to Killybegs since this is where my ancestors Derry's are from and would love any information on the area from those who have traveled or live there. Thanks! Betsy
