Just wondering if anyone can advise what the weather, especially temperatures are likely to be over Easter and the week following?
What do you suggest packing in terms of clothing and shoes?
My partner & I, early 70's very active still, American, first trip to Ireland, like scenery, music, atmosphere. Thinking of flying into Shannon, early to mid May, staying for 2-2.5 weeks. Three starter questions
I like to bump around so expect to rent a car, but how does one fine lodging when you don't know where you will be at any one time. Are there tourist offices, or simply ask at a pub, or how does this work, is it difficult or easy in May?
Second, since I'm arriving in Shannon, so do I go…
Hi, I'm a mid-twenties girl from Korea and getting ready for a year in Ireland.
I got a working holiday visa this year and can stay and work in any city - I'm attracted to Cork and Galway!
Dublin would be the biggest & busiest city I guess, but I want somewhere more peaceful, green and Irish.
The thing is, I wonder about the safety and atmosphere. Of course I heard A LOT how kind Irish people are and how safe the country is, but for me, it's first time to live alone in Europe and need some advice…
I am considering a trip to Cork in late August early September. Probably would not hire car and drive because of age. Would appreciate recommendations and advise on feasibility of spending 5 - 7 days in and around the city of Cork for a senior couple. We would visit the usual in a new city. We are interested in music, the arts, food, etc and the usual for new visitors. local tour guide recommendations would be appreciated.
We will be in Ireland 2nd half of May. The first week of our stay is a business trip, but we will take some days afterwards. We would have around 6 days extra. The congress is in Dublin so we thought it's maybe best to stay in that region. We are both hikers and are considering doing (part of) the Wicklow way. Would it be best to book with an agency that takes care of everything, or can we better book everything on our own like accommodations and transfers?
Also, if there are other Hiking…
We (me and my partner) are planning a trip to Ireland. We fly into Dublin on the 21st May and fly back home, again from Dublin, on the the 5th June.
We are mainly interested in nice landscapes and scenery, pretty villages and walks (short walks/half day walks) This is the plan till now, the line break means switching accomodation.
Day 1: Fly in late afternoon. Spend the night in Dublin
Day 2: Dublin
Day 3: Our car hire starts. Drive to Kilkenney and see Wicklow and Glendalough on the way…
I am planning my first trip to Ireland (from USA) for this coming May. I have something of an itinerary planned but am worried about over-extending myself. I have eight nights on the isle and have booked lodging for the first four (Dublin and Galway) but it's all refundable/could be canceled. I would love to have time to see Giant's Causeway and the Dark Hedges but don't think it's possible with my limited time so I've focused my itinerary on Dublin (where my flights arrive and depart)…
Hi, we are a family group of six - myself, husband, sister in law and our three sons (ages 23, 20 & 17). Flying in/out of Dublin and picking up a van from airport for the whole time. Know our time is not enough - interested in experiencing 'being in' Ireland rather than rushing around and ticking off sights. Keen to experience good pubs/live music and not too many castles/cathedrals. We have family links to Galway, Limerick, Tipperary and Arklow. Had hoped to get to Killarney and ROK but realise…
I can only get time off for 7 days to travel ireland and I am looking for opinions on where to go and for how long. Belfast is a must because i'm a HUGE Game of Thrones fan. Do I need to go to Killarney or is spending an extra day in Cork worth it? I've heard these three cities and Dublin are awesome. so how many days in each? what do you recommend? i'll be hitting up hostels, i love the party atmosphere. i'll be going alone so i prefer to train it all.
Hello Fellow Travelers!
I have a trip brewing that I'd love any and all ideas about how to make a reality. Here's by romantic vision of what this trip will be....
I land in Dublin, Ireland with a backpack (in which is a hammock of course) and I find a great B&B type place to land my gear and get showered up. Then I head into town (public transportation or walking to get there) and find an amazing meal with fantastic music. I get good and liquored up, enjoy the music, maybe dance a little and…
