I'm planning on travelling to the UK and Ireland for 4 months. I'm Australian and planning on flying in and out of Edinburgh in Scotland. I am planning to spend 3.5months in Ireland and wondered if the 180day tourist visa you get when entering the UK can be used in Ireland or do I get a new tourist visa when I fly to Dublin?
In saying that, I will be doing short weekend trips to Europe, so is that going to make it difficult to re-enter Ireland each time?
Any info would be great!! I'm…
Does anyone know if it is possible to do a tour of the Maze Prison in Belfast? There are a few links that suggest that it is but no official site or place to book...
So I want to travel to Ireland later this year, maybe August or September and I was looking for some advice by those who have been or are from Ireland. I'd be flying in and first off, not sure whether to go to Cork or Dublin. I obviously won't have a car so what are the public transit systems like? Just need some input and advice. I'm from the US but live in Japan and this would be my first time heading into a country with no connections and solo!
Thanks for whatever advice I can…
I need some help here. My husband and i booked our one way flight from Bristol to Dublin with British Airways for a reasonable price. It says for 1st checked bag no fee for up to 23kg. Is this per person or does it mean if we both have a suitcase only mine will be free and we will have to pay for his checked suitcase?
Secondly we are heading to Manchester from Dublin. The flights from Dublin to Manchester with British Airways are quite expensive so i am looking at Ryanair. I understand carry…
I have reserved a car through AAA. The cost at checkout is $155.00 without any of the insurances. The rental is for 6 days. I want ALL the insurance, a GPS and probably a WIFI hotspot.. What can I expect my total will be? Will that insurance include liability? Thanks
Dear Travellers, let me please ask a few questions about renting a car in Dublin.
I've tried to search for some answers already, though I am not that good with search engine here.
1) Should we rent a car through RyanAir, which we fly with, or should we book directly with the company?
2) We plan to stay the first and last night in Dublin, where we wonť need a car. Should we rent it in a city centre or should we go back to the airport for it?
3) I understand it is better to opt for Theft…
Shortly, I will be traveling to Ireland with my niece for two weeks along the Wild Atlantic Way! I have the route we will drive and most of the places we want to hit up, but the problem is I'm not sure where to spread the time over the two weeks and stop? Aside from Cork and Galway, where would you recommend stopping day-to-day for the night? Are there any areas worth two days of wandering around? We will start in Dublin and head to Cork in our rental car. From there we wish to…
In late June, Is it necessary to book tickets in advance on the ferries between Doolin and Inishmore, or can we count on getting them at the last minute?
And the same question for the ferry from Rossaveal?
I saw an air ticket direct to Dublin for $435 in June. Needless to say, i am very tempted to book it but i am concerned whether i can get around without a car. I know i can take buses from city to city but once i get to the cities....are there local buses to get to the tourist attractions, i.e. Cliff of Moher, etc?
