  • i lived in loughrea(it was not too far from galway) for a summer. it was a beautiful place, and the sightseeing was cheaper than in england. better than the scenery was the happiness of the people! take an umbrella, or be sure to have a jacket with a hood! you should have a great time!

  • It's beautiful, I went to Dublin a few years ago for a wedding; the scenery is lovely and the people are very friendly and fun. I love it there.

  • I've been three times, for a total of about 4 months. I loved every bit of it. Dublin is my favorite city in the world. Dublinia, a museum sort of attraction, is a ton of fun, the Guinness Brewery is fantastic and the bus tours are a must. You get to see the main attractions and ride a cool bus. Make sure you take DART out to Dun Laoghaire and Howth. Galway is a great city, too. It's the Irish language capital of the country.

    My best advice is to rent a car and drive throughout the countryside. You will be able to drive right up to ruins! It's amazing.

    Have fun! I'm super jealous.

  • Many times (my husband and kids are US+ Irish citizens). The southwest coast of Ireland (near Shannon) is beautiful. Are you going to Killarney? Doing the Ring of Kerry? Dingle Bay and Inch? I have been all over the Island-
