All of your posts on these forums have been so helpful to me. But I need your help one more time. My hotels are finally all settled except for cancelling a couple...but here are my last questions:
My itinery is Shannon Airport to Galway to Killarney to Kilkenny to Dublin. Since my husband and I had hard enough time driving in Portugal and Spain, I can't see us doing it on the opposite side of the roads in Ireland--especially in mountains. I would be screaming on the floor of the car (wrong side), and he would be yelling and weaving down the middle of the road. It would not be pleasant. So, we are taking busses and--from Kilkenny to Dublin--the train.
Can I make these bus reservations in each city once we are there...rather than booking on line ahead of time? We'll be there in early April...so I don't see anything being sold out at that time?????
We'll take day trips out of Galway, Killarney and Dublin, and I'm trying to pinpoint the best tour operators and best tours.
In Galway, there's O'Neachtain Tours and Ireland West. Does anyone have a recommendation on which operators are best?
I need to pick from tours of Conamara (might not be spelled right), Clifs of Moher and Arran Islands. Any recommendations?
In Killarney, we have the choice of Ring of Kerry, Dingle Pennisula or Gap of Dunlow. The Gap of Dunlow with the pony and trap and boat sounds fun...but should we miss Ring of Kerry for that? Also, I read lots of raves about Dingle Pennisula. Any recommendations?
In Dublin, I'm trying to decide on either a Wild Wicklow tour or train to Belfast. Any recommendations here?
I'm assuming that we can book the day tours as we arrive in each city.
OH THANK YOU, GREAT GURUS! YOU ARE THE BEST!
