We are planning a 5 day trip to Donegal in late August. We'll fly in to Belfast I think as it seems the closest airport that is also cheap, and is quicker to get there than from Dublin?
Once there, are there any recommendations for an itinerary given that a) we will be reliant on public transport and b) we are keen photographers?
Hello TTF Friends,
I will be travelling with 4 other adults throughout Ireland from May 28- June 8th. We will start in Dublin and stay until the 31st, at which point we will need to book a car rental for the rest of our trip. I checked out Enterprise and Hertz. They were somewhat expensive. I was hoping I could get some car rental tips from any folks out there that may have figured out the trick to getting a cheap (but reliable) car rental in Ireland. We would be picking the car up in Dublin on…
Hi, my wife and I are traveling with our daughter (who will be @ 1 and a half) to Ireland this August for about 2 weeks. We're flying into Dublin and flying out of Shannon. I've been toying around with intineraries and wanted to get some feedback /ideas on this possible plan:
Day 1: arrive in Dublin, sleep in Dublin
Day 2: Dublin, sleep in Dublin
Day 3: rent car, Dublin to Belfast, sleep Belfast
Day 4: Belfast, sleep Belfast
Day 5: Belfast - Giants Causeway - Derry, sleep Derry
Day 6: Derry…
We'll fly to Dublin from Southampton. We'll have checked bags. We are US citizens. What are the customs and immigration procedures? Roughly how long might the process take, not incl waiting to collect our bags? We're planning to take a bus to Galway from the airport and I'm trying to gauge how long it might take us to get out of the customs area and head toward our bus.
Can anyone share their experiences with me on the following cities in Ireland:
I'd be interested in your recommendations, as well as the best places to see/visit/experience in any of these cities:
Is it neccessary to have a car in Dublin?
I have a very good offer to Rent a car. Thinking about to Rent it directly at the Airport After arrival instead of taking the Public Transport to the Center. How is the Parking Situation in Dublin ?
Planning on taking a trip to Ireland in the fall, and still working on two potential itineraries. The one below is on actually taking the seemingly less popular Northern side. If anyone is willing to review it and/or answer any of my questions, my thanks in advace.
Arrive at Airport around 10:30AM.
Dublin (2 nights)
- Explore the city the rest of the first day, second day either explore more and relax or visit somewhere in the environs (i.e. Newgrange)
Galway City (2 nights)
I've got a congress in Dublin at the beginning of July and I'd like to take the opportunity to see a bit of the country as well while I'm there.
Will be arriving the Saturday before and leaving the following Sunday. So will have the 2 weekends to explore. Any suggestions for what to do in Dublin, is a hop on hop off type tour sufficient? and if there is an overnight stay that somebody can recommend in the countryside. Big outdoors person who enjoys hiking and exploring.
Can someone tell me what the border-crossing experiences are between Ireland and Northern Ireland at Strathabane and at Belleek?
I am planning a trip and I want to do a very jam-packed day and if border-crossings can be time consuming at these places, I may have to re-think how to do this day.
