Adare Limerick.

I am looking for accommodation in Adare for August and finding it difficult .I will be on my own and ,since the wife will be in the UK, I am not too fussy about "quality".I don't want to pay more than 60 Euro, preferably, but I don't want a dive either.

I know Limerick is not far away but…

Aran islands

Me and my friend are going to Ireland this April and are planning to visit Aran Islands. Is it possible to make a one-day trip to the islands or should we stay for one night? Does anybody have any general tips about the islands? Where we should go and so on?

Connemara

I am traveling to Galway in late May this year. I am very interested in visiting Connemara. Is it best to take a guided tour (via Galway Tour Company) or to just take a bus to Letterfrack and hike the Diamond Hill Trail with my travel companion?
I would really like to do some hiking and exploring at my own pace. Then again, I can see the benefit of a guided tour in that I would be able to see a variety of sites in one day. I just worry about that cattle-like feeling of getting on and off a bus…

I have family history in Limerick and County Clare so that is a must visit. We also want to…

Where to use as a base in southern Northern Ireland?

Hello all,

In a few weeks my husband and I will be spending 8 nights driving around Northern Ireland. We will spend 3 nights in Belfast before hiring a car our last morning in Belfast and leaving for the road-trip bit. I was thinking we'd drive to Derry/Londonderry that day, spend 2 nights there, then spend 3 nights somewhere in the south of the country before returning to Belfast to fly out.

Only question is, where? We don't intend to spend our whole time in the town - just a base to do…

I will start this by mentioning The Lough Derg way near Portroe Tipperary. This is a walk along Lough Derg lake and takes in Dromineer harbour, Castlelough picnic area and forest walk, GarryKennedy harbour with Larkins Bar and forest walk, the Lookout, the Millennium Cross and Graves of the Leinstermen on Tountinna hill.
