Ireland

Travel Across Ireland

Alright so im wondering what the transportation situation is for Ireland. Im looking into including Galway and Shannon into the Irish portion of my trip (Link Below, check it out i would love some feed back and ideas to fill up my itinerary!) and i am wondering what is the quickest most cost effective route from Galway or Shannon to Dublin. Any insight would be appreciated! Smile

May Euro trip help!!-- Rome, Barcelona, Figueres, Dublin, Galway!

Hey! So I’ve been dying to do a Euro Trip. I spent the majority of last winter scouring travel books, sites, and anything else I could get my hands on. I decided upon a handful of places to hit in May. I get off from college the 2nd of May and am willing to travel up until the 24th or so.

I was leaning more or so the 8th to the 23rd (dates can be flexible).

Would it be plausible to hit Rome, Italy first. Then fly to Barcelona to spend time there and take a day trip to Figueres to see Salvador Dalí`s museum. Then I would fly to Ireland to see friends from the summer who live there.

Itinerary help- Ireland, England, Scotland

I’m planning a trip this upcoming summer (2012). It’s going to be my and my friend; we’re both 20 year old girls from New York and will be traveling from May 30- June 21 in Ireland, England, and Scotland. I have a basic itinerary planned but will be the first to admit i have NO idea what i’m doing.

Travelling while studying abroad

Hi!

I’m studying abroad in Florence in the spring. Planning on going to Venice for Part of Carnevale. It starts on my 20th birthday which also happens to be my friends 21st. Also, I was thinking about going to Dublin for St. Patrick’s day then to London, Liverpool, and Edinburgh because the week after is our spring break. I was wondering if Dublin on St. Patrick’s day is worth it because hostels alone are like triple the price. Would it be better to reverse the plan and start in London and end in Dublin? Also looking for tips on hostels and booking with ryanair (ie.

Italy and Ireland in 12 days-are we crazy?!

My husband and I are visiting Europe for the first time ever in October, and we can’t wait! I already purchased our airfare (because the price was just too good!) so we fly out of Washington, DC on Oct. 1 and land in London on Oct. 2. Since we have never been there before, and don’t know many people who have, I had a few questions I am hoping you all can help me out with!

1. Is 11 days really enough time to do a southern Italy tour and a southern Ireland tour? Rome is an absolute must, but we also would like to see Pompei, Venice, Florence, and the Amalfi Coast.

Ireland Advice?

Hello! I just finished my first Europe trip and I loved it! We went to six different destinations and I enjoyed each and everyone of them. But my favorite place by far was Ireland. We stayed a quick two nights in Dingle, Ireland and on the way home (we got home this Saturday haha) I promised myself I would dedicate a full trip to Ireland and explore it’s coasts and etc. My question for those who have been and toured Ireland, what was the most beautiful/fun experience or places you would suggest? Is car rental the way to go (thats what I’m thinking of doing.

Tour Britain and Ireland On Line (Video + Stills)

The film “My Pub Runneth Over” presents a comprehensive journey to Britain and Ireland, including England (London, Stonehenge, walled cities & a castle), Wales, Ireland (kiss the Blarney Stone, Dublin, Cliffs of Moher), and Scotland (Edinburgh, the highlands, bagpipes & Loch Ness), plus interviews, and, of course, pubs.

The video can be seen on the web, if you have a high speed internet connection.

This is a free, non-commercial, streaming video on the Windows Media Player. No ads and no strings attached. I still sell absolutely nothing.

Favorite places Ireland?

So I’m probably going to be in Ireland for 3 or 4 days and I’ve been to Dublin once before about 5 years ago and me and my mom did some driving around. It was beautiful! I don’t really remember getting so much out of hanging in Dublin, I kind of enjoyed the driving and seeing the countryside more than being in Dublin. Of course it was September when I went. Now I’ll be there in mid or late April. Are there any places that are especially worth seeing? And does anyone know if it’s just going to be nothing but rainy so it wouldn’t be worth finding places to hike?

Party Hostels in England, Ireland, Am'dam, Belgium??

I have just come back from backpacking through Australia for 6 months and i am hopefully leaving for Europe in late march, april-ish and i was hopeful that the European hostels would stand up to the same party atmosphere as i have come used to in oz like waking up at 11:00am and people already going jagerbombs in the common room and im on a super tight budget since i just came home i don’t really have enough saved up to be leaving again but i really need to get back to traveling!

So any suggestions ????
