Visited with my wife and 3 young kids. The estate is a pretty setting by the lake but don't get fooled by the extortionate tourist trap of the "self guided tour". It's basically a 15 minute walk down a tunnel and over a bridge with...More

Ireland for Kids (18 Replies)
Okay, so I go home once a year but almost always by myself. I have been promising my grandkids that when they turned 8 I would take them to Ireland. My twin grandbabies will be turning 8 next year so it is coming time. Do any of you that have kids around that age have suggestions as to what would interest them? I know they would be bored just going around for the scenery and the history. And I know of quite a few things that they might enjoy...such as Bunratty Castle, some of the farms, Lough...More

Galway to Lough Key? (4 Replies)
Hello! I'll be in Galway at the end of July for about a week, and on one of those days we'd love to go up and spend some time at Lough Key Forest Park. We're planning to rent a car and drive, but I just thought I'd check in to see - is this doable? How long would the drive (realistically) be (Google tells me ~2 hours, but is that accurate?), and is there a recommended route? We don't mind time in the car seeing the Irish country! Any other recommendations for the trip would be helpful as...More

Firstly buy your Fuel in the republic before doing the North coast run, Uk fuel tax is nasty. Whilst on the North coast have a look in at the Bushmills Distillery, if you are in or passing Portrush at mealtime the Harbour Bar is Good value. Letterkenny is a good day out Park your car on the underground of the Court Hotel & call in for Food & Drink at DillonsBar the craic is mighty as they say.
