    • 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.

    • Hiring a private driver

      Ireland Nov 22, 2016 at 9:51 AM

      Has anyone ever hired a private driver in Ireland? This would be done in lieu of renting a car. Is it expensive? Recommended? I'm planning a drip that goes from Dublin south around the shore up to Galway and back to Dublin. This would probably be done in a week's time. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

    • Waterford Worth it?

      Ireland Nov 8, 2016 at 5:54 AM

      I am travelling to Ireland next May and will be there for about 10 days. Due to time constraints my friend and I are going to be staying in the southern part of the country. I love Waterford Crystal and would like to go tour the factory and store. However, it seems that there isn't much else there to see so I'm not sure if we'd spend the night there. We will be travelling by train and it doesn't look like there is anywhere to store luggage for a few hours. With our limited time, is it worth it to go to Waterford? Are there other things we shouldn't miss there that I'm missing? Just for reference, we're planning to spend 3 nights in Dublin and then also hit Cork, Limerick, either Ennis or Shannon, visit the Cliffs of Moher, go to Galway and then make our way back to Dublin. What do you think? Should we go to Waterford? Thank you for any help you can give.

    • Ferry Timetable

      by dohertyj Online Now Nov 27, 2010 at 8:30 PM

      Sorry the only web info from the ferry company seems to be in Gaelic.
      Can you please tell me (in English) the timetable for ferrying between Magheroarty and Tory Island in June 2011, in particular Monday 13/6/11.

      Is Magheroarty the same place as "Meenlaragh"?

      It seems the loop walk on the island is about 4 Km - ie 1 and a half hours.
      what abbreviated versions of a walk can to suggest?

      Thank you

      John Doherty

      (We are Melbourne Australia and (4 of us) will spend the month of June travelling in Ireland 2011 - we look forward to your hospitality and general assistance)

      Hi, we're considering Tory Island in early October. Do you know if the water is generally more turbulent around that time than, say, in August? Thanks!!

      Hello,

      I'm trying to find email or web contact info for a B&B on Tory Island with no luck (all I can get is telephone #s and I'm trying to avoid an international call). Can anybody help me here, or are the B&Bs on the island just not internet-connected? Thank you.
