I'll be traveling to Ireland in mid-may. I have a general outline of where I want to go, but only two defined stops as I want to leave room for exploration depending on available time. My flight into Dublin arrives early a.m. Here's what I am planning for travel:
Arrival - Walking tour/explore Dublin; overnight in Dublin
Day 1 - Pick up a rental car (Dublin airport), drive to Donegal with stop at New Grange; stay in Donegal
Day 2 - Drive to Slieve League; stay in Donegal
Day 3 - Drive from Donegal…
Hi, I'm from Portugal. I am thinking of making the trip that I have always dreamed of in Ireland more properly in the city of Dublin between the days 14 and 20 of July, because its culture fascinates me immensely, someone is interested in joining this my journey?
I'll be landing in Dublin in early July and then going to Kilkenny. I'm looking at two options for my first night there:
a) Stay in Dublin and drive to Kilkenny the following morning
b) Drive to Kilkenny the same day I land
I'm worried about what kind of traffic I'll hit if I choose option b. By the time I get off the plane and to my rental car, it should be 5 p.m. or so on a Thursday. Am I going to get stuck in traffic during that time? If that's the case, maybe I should go with…
Hello! I am planning a road trip around Ireland and Northern Ireland in September for about 10 days. I have an itinerary put together but Ireland is rather expensive and I don't think I can afford to go. Plus, travel experiences are fun with someone else! I will be 29 soon and looking for preferably another younger female to travel with. Anyone know of good websites to use or anyone interested?
Hello! My husband and I are taking our second trip to Ireland in August. I've put together a rough itinerary and wanted to get some feedback on it.
We have 9 full days to spend and I wanted to visit the southwest this time. I've been contemplating a day trip to Northern Ireland but with the distance, I'm wondering if it would be more wise to save NI for another trip and focus on the southwest for this one.
Here are two possible itineraries I've put together. All constructive input…
Hi all! Traveling to Ireland in October and this is the plan. We’re planning on being up early and out late each night, and like to go so that’s no problem, but are we taking on to much? If so what should we cut/change?
Day 1: Fly into Belfast early in the AM(from Edinburgh), using public transport visit Dunluce Castle, Carrick-a-Rede bridge, end in Giants Causeway(staying there).
Day 2: Using public transport, visit Dark Hedges, then spend end of the day in Dublin. Spend night in Dublin.
I'm planning a trip to Ireland with my father for late September-early October. We're both very active, and looking to see as much as we possibly can with the limited time we have. He's already been to Dublin, and is excited to show me around (we're Irish, but he's only been once). We like to hike, and are primarily looking to spend time outside (even if it's pouring rain!!). Two years ago I did a Scotland trek, two weeks across the whole island. I'm looking for an equally packed…
I will be traveling to Ireland from the middle to the end of May 2018. I'm a poor University student, so I'm trying to keep costs as low as possible. I was wondering what the current situation is for Hitchhikers throughout Ireland. I'm planning to fly into Cork, travel up the east coast and potentially make it to Glasgow before coming back down through central Ireland and the west coast and back to Cork. With an open mind, and a willingness to do some walking, how realistic is it to…
My husband and I are planning our 2nd trip to Ireland in August (9 full days). I want to visit the southeast this time, mainly Kerry and Cork. There are SO MANY things on my "want to-do" list but I know it's not possible.
Does anyone have any suggestions on things to do in these areas, especially in August? Where are the best towns to stay in that are perhaps close to many things but is also a lovely place (not like those are hard to find in Ireland!)?
Some places on my radar:
- Day trip to…
My wife and I just got back from a 15 night trip to Ireland. We absolutely loved every minute of it and tried our best to soak up as much about Ireland as we could. I did encounter a few instances of Irish rivalry and stereotypes. These were not tourist or foreigner related, but amongst the Irish.
When in Galway, talking about Cork was a sensitive subject. When I asked, the bartender told me it was best to not bring it up. I believe it may be sports related, but I'm not for sure.
