    I'd like some recommendations for hostels and/or budget hotel in Dublin. For me, the most important things are cleanness and location.

    Globetrotters Hostel is my favorite... partly because of their fantastic breakfast. Had good luck at Isaacs & Jacobs as well. Avalon House is in a cool, old building. almost 9 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. over 7 years ago

    What is the best time of year to visit Ireland?

    Spring's got budding flowers and baby animals. Summers got looooong hours of sunlight and higher prices and some locations have a lot of tourists. Fall usually has good temperatures with some sites cutting back on open times. Winter doesn't has very short days, so pubbing practically becomes a requirement :) Here's a post you might find helpful http://irishfireside.com/2012/03/04/when-is-the-best-time-to-visit-ireland/ over 8 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 7 years ago

    What to do in southwest Ireland in late April?

    Definitely get over to the Dingle Peninsula. Limerick City is nearby - Hunt Museum and the Saturday Milk Market are nice. Plan a day for the Shannon Estuary - http://irishfireside.com/2010/03/29/dolphin-watching-along-irelands-shannon-river/ about 8 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/. about 4 years ago

    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. about 4 years ago

    What is the best boat company to get to skellig islands?

    It's also important to determine which port you want to leave from; there are four. Where you leave from can affect your travel time. Check with the local tourism office for the most up-to-date info - http://www.ringofkerrytourism.com/. Because of the limited access, the boat operators are quite consistent. Just make sure you're getting on a boat that stops on the island.
