Hi to all the Irish contingent.

I shall be coming across to view the beauty that is your home next month. Me my better half and Messie.

Anyone got any suggestions as to where to go, what to do, and where to stay (cheap).

Will be over on 21st and going back on the 26th of August.


Cheers.

Si.

Default N or S

Where are you arriving? North or South of the border? There are so many places to go and so many things to see. I always recommend the Antrim coast road from Belfast to Portrush and stop off at "Joeys Pub" etc.

Sorry to Hijack your thread Ape.

Liz and I are going over the first week in October. Liz has relatives in Southern Ireland. Near Sligo I think she said.

We're staying in a cottage on Lough Derg.

I've never been to Northern Ireland I've been to Southern before. Stayed in Waterford for a weekend.

Im going from Holyhead to Dublin. Messie is organizing the Ireland side of the trip, whilst I sort out timings ferry and such on this side. Messie has friends in a couple of places, not sure if that involves North of the border or not. But I will keep that route in mind.

Cheers

Hi Guys

Thanks for the info so far.

I'm looking more to the west coast. I'd like to go (roughly) Dublin, Killarney, Ring of Kerry, then Limerick (ish) to Galway then Conemarra, then back to Dublin.

Any advice on roads and specially biker friendly B & B would be welcome

And if we should bump into any of you we'll buy you a pint of the black stuff!

Enjoy your trip anyway folks. Hope you get good weather for it. I'm sure somebody who knows the area will be along to advise you on roads and accomodation.
