Transit UK without visa  (9 Answers)

Going through Stansted airport from Dublin to La Rochelle in France and back the same way. i'm a Belarusian citizen but currently live in Ireland and have a D type Irish visa. Have read on the UK website the new regulations allow me to travel through UK without transit visa even when crossing the border (going through customs|). Can't get to anyone to confirm it - keep kicking me from embassy to airport to visa issuing guys. Anyone could help? don't wanna be deported or something. Thanks a mil in advance

Car hire in Galway  (8 Answers)

Hello all
I have a couple of French friends who are visiting Galway soon and they would like to know the best option for care hire in the city. Can anyone recommend the best place with the best rates?
Also, the guys are quite young, early 20's, so is that an issue for them to hire? As long as they have full licenses for over 12 months then it should be ok, right?
Thank you all :)

Galway emergency holiday apartment/room  (5 Answers)

Hi, I have a very big problem here; me and my boyfriend had planned to spend the holidays together after 2 months apart (I had to move to England for study reasons), but his new housemate does not want me in their house (with very short notice). I have found a place to stay the first few days, but I am desperate to find a place in the city centre from the 26th of December to the 8th of January. It would be the best Christmas present for us. Anyone knows of a cheap comfy place that could be rented for those days? I hope Santa hears me, we have been very good all year round...

Good Friday Evening  (3 Answers)

Myself and a few friends are going to be on a Guided Tour of Ireland next week and will be spending the night in Galway on Good Friday. I just found out that ALL Pubs and Clubs are required to be closed on Good Friday. The tour operators must have forgotten to mention this when we booked :-)
Any recommendations as to what to do on this night??
Someone said that the Hotel bars are the only ones allowed to be open?? In the USA the hotel bars are consistently boring. Is the same true in Galway?? Am i allowed to go to another hotel bar if one is known to be better than the others - or am i restricted to only my hotel bar?

Thank you in advance. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Getting between Salthill and Galway City Center?  (9 Answers)

I'm thinking about staying in the Salthill area rather than the city center, as it looks like a wonderful part of town.

How easy is it to get to the city center from there? I'll have a car but would rather not drive around the city, so would be walking (during daylight hours), taking a bus or getting a cab.

I'm basing myself in Galway for 3 days, with one day reserved for exploring the city, one day reserved for driving around Connemara, and the third day for a trip to the Aran Islands, so I don't know that I really *need* to be in the city center for convenience.

How long a walk is it, do you think? I walk at a good clip. Is there a frequent bus that goes between the two?

Thanks!

Bikes in Galway  (4 Answers)

My girlfriend and I are staying in a B&B about 4 kilometers from Galway city in April. We were thinking of hiring bicycles so that we could park our car at the B&B and ride the bikes to and from town. Does anyone know if that's a good idea? Is it generally safe for cyclists on the roads/sidewalks inside and just outside the city? Is it safe to lock a bike around the city? Is it safe to ride at night?

Thanks for any advice or answers to my multiple questions!

Galway or Limerick

Which city is more worth seeing, Galway or Limerick? Unfortunately my time is limited and I can only afford one day in one of this cities.

I'd spent two nights in the selected city using it as a base for a daytrip to Cliffs of Moher, the other day would be free for sightseeing...

Accomodations in Galway City Center?  (4 Answers)

I'm looking for a centrally located hotel or B & B - for about a five night stay. I'd like to pay about 75 - 85 Euros per night on average. I'll be traveling alone so I'm looking for somewhere I'll feel comfortable coming and going. Also, is the Salthill area walking distance of the city center? That looks like it would have some moderately priced places to stay.. Thanks for the feedback!

Need an address  (2 Answers)

We stopped at Joyces Craft Shop and had a delightful time talking with the owner. He was a world of information - we made sure to stop at everything he said "Don't miss." I've got a book of Washington State I want to send him. I figure he shared his country with us - I'd love to share my state with him. If anyone has an address, I'd really appreciate it! Loved Ireland - loved the people - would love to go back again some time!
