was wondering if any one could help, I'm trying to find a place to stay just for 1 evening in Kilcoole it needs to be as close to there as possible and not cost the earth to stay there.
I'm going over to see sum 1 i should have never have let leave my life and im going to get them back ( thought a little inside info might get your guys thinking caps on )
hope you guys can help, this is a very important trip and need to be as close as possible
Hello, my soon-to-be husband & I are staying in Rathdrum for about 6 days in June and I haven't done much research because it is our honeymoon and I'm otherwise preoccupied with wedding plans. Are there any suggestions on things we should see, pubs with good food/music? Also any other suggestions outside of the area that are good for day trips (we are staying in Dublin for 5 days following our stay in Rathdrum). Thank you!
Hello, I will be traveling in Ireland for the first time this March and wondering if it would be easy/difficult/worthwhile to visit Powerscourt house and gardens and Glendalough in the same day? It seems that Powerscourt estate might offer enough to do in one day, but I heard that Glendalough is very picturesque being near the Wicklow mountains. If this is possible what would be the best means of travel?
Thanks so much for any advice or suggestions!
My family history includes ancestors described as being from "Vale of Avoca" and I have records of some being baptized in Arklow (although I have no parish names). What are the best resources for viewing parish records, as I've read that the parish priests are very covetous of those records and that libraries in Dublin are the best place to look.
Also, what about visiting cemeteries for headstones? Are they well maintained to the point that markings are visible? We are planning a vacation to the Avoca/Arklow region later this year and I'd like to visit the places of our ancestral home.
I'm planning to take my teenage daughters on a holiday in August. We want to visit Dublin but probably not stay there. I'm thinking that County Wicklow would be nice, perhaps somewhere on the Dart rail line.
I'd like a town that would be a good base from where to explore the area. That means good rail/bus links because we wont be driving. We're looking to visit some nice costal and countyrside spots, plus castles, country house gardens etc.
I'd be very grateful for any suggestions or advice.
