Hi everyone,

I'm going to Dublin for work end of september, and I thought of leaving early to explore Wicklow NP, hiking.
I'll have about 3full days (friday-sunday, including getting there and away) and will be relying on public transport and sleeping in a tent along the way. Any suggestions about an interesting route I'd be able to do in that amount of time?

Thanks!

Hey all…my husband and I are travelling to Ireland this October… I have only been to Donegal (back in 1992) . We are flying in and out of Dublin. We are booking a WagJag deal though Great Value Vacations that gives us 6 B&B coupons (our choice of where to stay) as well as two castle stays - one night at Cabral Castle and one night at Kilronan Castle in Roscommon.
Just looking for any recommended B&B or sights to see along the way.

Our idea is to head south from Dublin all the way around to…

Hi everyone,

I’m planning a honeymoon trip to Ireland next May and want to make sure of a couple things:

  1. I want to make sure that this trip is feasible timewise so that we won’t feel rushed.
  2. I want to have a diverse experience of Ireland. I want to experience the culture and food (fine dining and pub scene), experience a little bit of luxury(spend a few nights in a nice hotel, then stay in less expensive places; I’ve read that B&B’s are an excellent way to experience Ireland), and have…

Hey,
does anyone know how hard it is to get a working holiday visa(WHV) in Ireland? Does Ireland give out many WHV, or are they a country that just take your visa application fee and never give out WHV? Also, how hard is it to find work there?

Hi everyone,

I've done a lot of research lately and trying to find the best itinerary for my friend and I travelling around Ireland for 2 weeks ... I searched through the forum as well to get a better sense of what we should focus on etc. Was wondering if anyone could give feedback!

  • We want to rent a car. I know there is no point in Dublin. Would it be better to rent a car at the airport after Dublin or to take public transport and rent closer towards Glendalough?? My only concern is, do we…

Hello all. I will arrive in Dublin from California early a.m Sep 6. I will spend 2-3 nights in Dublin then rent a car which I will drop off at Dublin Airport Sep 19 for a mid-p.m. flight home. So I will have about ten days on the road.

This will be my first visit and I am sure I will return. I like to not pre-plan more than necessary, not rush to "see it all" and preferably book lodging as I go. More toward the budget side favoring b&b's with local atmosphere. Given that it will still be high…

Hello All!

I am planning a solo trip to Ireland, and unfortunately cannot get a car (the insurance premiums are too high for someone under 25). I'm really interested in Irish music and the beautiful scenery and geology. This is my tentative itinerary, and I'm wondering if it is possible to do sans car, or are there any changes you would suggest. I would love to stay in Dingle, but I hear it is hard to do without a car, so I was thinking staying in Killarney, and then doing a day tour of Dingle…
