    Should I just do day tours from Dublin?

    I would choose a day tour of the Ring of Kerry from Killarney. Traveling to the Ring from Dublin for a day tour will put you in the highway for a significant part of the trip. That means they'll have to cut many of the sites and stops along the Ring. Dublin is great for day tours to Wicklow, Glendalough, Newgrange, Kildare. Killarney is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry. Galway is great for Connemara and Clare/Cliffs of Moher. I realize you posted this a while back, so my apologies for not seeing your question sooner. over 2 years ago

    I would like to live in Ireland a month or two on my own at 68 yrs old. Any suggestions where i should start? I could move 1-2 times.

    Spending two or more weeks in one location would be a fantastic way to experience Ireland. If you're renting a car for your time in Ireland, you'll be able to stay anywhere. If you don't, it'll be important to choose locations that have easy access to public transportation and shops. The coastal counties (especially along the west coast - Counties Kerry, Clare, Galway, or Mayo) are very desirable. However, I'd suggest considering an inland county for part of your stay as well (maybe counties Tipperary, Kilkenny, Meath or Cavan). Since you're looking for an extended stay, you could consider a "self-catering" stay over a bed and breakfast for some of your travels. Searching for self-catering + your destination will reveal many properties that you can rent (usually for 7 days at a time)... http://www.ireland.com/en-us/accommodation/. over 2 years ago

    I am going Ireland on March 2014. Can someone tell me if I have to bring Euros or American dollar will be alright to use. Thanks in advance

    You can also use your debit card in an ATM/cash machine to get local currency (double check with your bank for availability and fees). Also note that Northern Ireland's currency is British Pounds Sterling rather than Euros which are used in the Republic of Ireland. almost 6 years ago

    What's the cheapest way to get from Dublin, Ireland to Blarney Castle and Ring of Kerry?

    The cheapest option is usually bus or train from Dublin to Cork then onwards by bus to Blarney. The bus is usually cheaper, but there are often special offers for those who pre-book train tickets. The Ring of Kerry is 180 miles long, so there are lots of spots to where you could meet up with it. Killarney is the main town along the route and a good place to book a day tour... there are also day tours from Cork. You can get a snapshot of transport schedules at http://getthere.ie/ -- you'll see more options putting Dublin to Cork rather than Dublin to Blarney. about 5 years ago

    Free WiFi in Ireland?

    Dublin just unveiled free wifi in several locations ( http://www.rte.ie/news/2013/0131/365427-dublin-city-centre-wifi/ ). As mentioned in the previous answer... free might not always be available. Many libraries, tourist offices, and some restaurants and caf├ęs may offer it. over 5 years ago

    Flying into Dublin. Doing self drive of castles for 8 days any suggestions for meals that must be gluten free? Thank you

    Ireland has one of the highest ratios of celiacs in the world, so most restaurants have gluten free options on the menu, or if they don't, staff are generally well-versed on the topic and will make sure meals are made to suit your restrictions. Compared to many other countries, Ireland very gluten-free friendly. US celiacs I know have been especially pleased because they don't get confused looks from staff when trying to order. almost 6 years ago

    at ashford castle. Will a trip into Galway for shopping be worthwhile? Tripadvisor recommended morans oyster cottage??

    If you're looking for a taste of "town" then Galway is definitely worth the trip. Ashford and the village of Cong are ideally situated for lake activity and driving trips around Connemara. Moran's is good... and it makes all the guidebooks. If you don't make it to Moran's, ask a local where they'd go for great seafood. almost 6 years ago
