An aadition to the now locked "Money" thread posted recently :-

The OP should not take any defaced (pen marks, etc.) or damaged notes. These often will be refused for exchange by banks. Similarly, old, grotty notes may suffer a similar fate.

(I did try to PM the Mod "Cosima1" to add this but sensibly they do not accept certain PM's.)

Solo UK Sept/Oct - Tour Questions

Hello

I'm planning my first solo trip to the UK--it's actually my first solo trip ever (I have no one to go with and I'm tired of waiting so it's finally happening!). I'll be there for 3 weeks: Ireland to Scotland to England then home.

I'm a 27 yo female and to help me get around to all the places that I want to see, I'm looking at booking a couple of tours in Ireland and Scotland. I've pretty much figured out my itinerary and have looked into tours with Shamrocker and Haggis Adventures so…

Dublin Suggestions

I'll be in Dublin for 4 nights in Feb with my 24 yr old daughter. We'd appreciate any suggestions for music or storytelling...or something else. We are adventurous travelers and would like to avoid maudlin versions of "Danny Boy" or anything resembling "Riverdance"...looking for authenticity, if that makes sense. An idea for an afternoon tea or good, moderately priced meals would also help. Staying near Trinity College and we do need an idea for breakfast on our arrival day was we arrive at…

day tours from Derry to north coast and Donegal

My husband and I will be doing an Ireland trip for spring break. Will start in Dublin and take train to Derry (anscestral city). From Derry we want to take day trips to the coast/causeway area, and over into northwest Ireland/Donegal area. I saw that during the low season, there are fewer trips and you need ten people in order to get a tour to go. Any ideas? Also, recommendations for good pubs and restaurants in Derry.

7 days in Ireland

Hi there!

My Husband are planning a 7 day, 7 night trip to Ireland in late May. We are flying into Dublin and out of Shannon, but I don't even know where to start as far as where to stay. Everyone seems to have a different opinion. We are interested in doing half of the southern loop and particularly interested in the southwest and the west. We are in our late twenties early thirties and interested in food, beer, music, history and nature. Basically, want to spend our days being active and our…

I have heard that every Irish place outside Dublin are called Bog-Ireland. But an Irish friend of mine says that is untrue. So what is the truth?
