Awful experience. The only notable unpleasant experience in Ireland mind you. Many issues here. Trying to pull money from the automated teller machine was denied repeatedly, so we went inside to get money from the teller using the same card. The outside machine did not...More
We visited Dublin partly to see this exhibition and boy, was it worth it. Much care and attention to detail has been put into this project as well as seemingly a large amount of financial resource and the result does Heaney's memory proud. Well worth...More
Sauntered into town, and took in this lovely exhibition. and was very happily surprised. It takes under 30 mins and is well documented and very well displayed, including letters, diaries, photographs from this Nobel Prize winner. It is situated at the Bank of Ireland Cultural...More
This building was built as a Parliament house containing the House of Lords and House of Commons. In 1729 the present structure was commenced. This consisted only of the central part wrapping around a courtyard. It has no windows.
it was called the 'goose pie'...More
Well worth a visit to this spectacular building. And when you walk in you are met to a beautiful coal fire. House of Lords very interesting but would love a guided tour. The banking hall is so bright. Highly recommend calling in here
Does anyone know if guided tours of the Bank of Ireland are offered and if so on what days, at what times, by whom , where the meeting point is and if reserving in advance is required. Lots of questions for one sentence! Thank you for any help you are able to give! Jan-Cartersville Ga-USA

There are free tours of the former House of Lords at the Bank of Ireland in College Green on Tuesdays only. Tours start at 10.30am, 11.30am and 12.30pm. Just go into through the main entrance of the bank and ask for the House of Lords.

Changing Northern Ireland pounds into Lats (3 Replies)
Has anyone travelling from Northern Ireland had any trouble changing their money into Lats? I've read that the best place to get your money changed is at Riga airport on arrival, but I'm wondering if they accept our NI notes (Northern Bank, Ulster Bank, Bank of Ireland, First Trust etc)... I mean, most businesses in England don't even accept them!!! Would we have to take out Bank of England notes?

They definitely will not be accepted. Northern Irish bank notes aren't legal tender in England and if English people don't know what they are then you definitely won't be able to find anyone who will accept them in Latvia. Scottish bank notes are accepted in some currency exchanges here but at a seriously bad rate (usually they take 20-25% commission). My advice : either head to the bank there and change them over for bank of england or head to the cashpoint in front of belfast city hall...More
Dublin on a Sunday (10 Replies)
My husband & I will have only one full day, Sunday, September 13, to explore Dublin before heading for the airport early Monday morning. We will arrive mid afternoon on Sat. Sept. 12. Staying at the Shelbourne and want to make best use of what little time we have. I know there will be Sunday closings and limited opening times. Need advice on how to get in the following without spending needless time backtracking: St Patrick's and Christ Church Cathedrals Trinity College (Book of...More

Is this your proposed itinerary for one day ? It's an awful lot. The Bank of Ireland won't be open on Saturday or Sunday. The National Gallery won't open until 12pm and the Chester Beatty until 2pm. The Writers' Museum opens at 11am. Christchurch and St. Patrick's will be busy with services on Sunday morning (Protestant/Church of Ireland services which you would be very welcome to attend) so if you don't want to attend the services you'll have to factor in your visit at another time. ...More
