County Cork Comments
In August of 2008, I spent well over five thousand American dollars, including flight and B&B places in just two weeks. I also took a train from Cobh to Dublin, expensive but it was worth it. I did not bring enough cash for the conversion from dollars to Euros and then to sterlings for England. Your minimum should be six thousand, in my humble view -- limit your visits to restaurants and consider Sentra markets and stick to hostels. As for places to visit, anywhere you visit will be a good choice. I had a nice time in Blarney, Cobh, Dublin's Grafton Street, and Trinity College. Avoid cab rides, as they can be costly.
City is great but avoid ordering anything from a restaurant that is not a local flavor. If you visit Cobh, see the White Star line historical landmarks/cemetery (Lusitania) and grab a great homemade pie at the Cobh Bakery, great deal.
I visited with my mom, sis, and uncle way back in 1979 and am finally getting to return with my husband and daughters this summer. I can't wait.
/Ballydonegan is the the birthplace of my maternal grandmother, Anna Shea. I am so looking forward to showing my girls their heritage in such a beautiful place.
I have visited
on two trips and will go there again.
is a beautiful spot. Yes, it's great craic, too. You can take the drink or leave it, but just enjoy the relaxation and beauty of the place.
I have just been able to determine that
is the ancestral home of our family, with the head being Nathan Capron Davis. My mother who is deceased tried to determine this for years, but never succeeded. I certainly would plan on visiting the area to make her wish come true.
I traveled from one end of Ireland to the other this past month and I have to say that my FAVORITE part of the trip was my stay in a little town outside
named Adrigole. The most beautiful countryside I have ever seen. Also I would be remiss if I did not mention the most wonderful person we met in Ireland...his name is Gene O'Sullivan and he is the owner of Glengarriff Cabs & Coach Services, He was the most accommodating, informative, charming individual that we met in Ireland and he gives the most fantastic tours. My family and I agree that he was definitely the HIGHLIGHT of our trip. If you are ever in the area or are planning to visit, Gene is the man to call if you want to see the BEST of Ireland. His number in Ireland is 027 63060. From the US you would dial 011 353 27 63060. He will take you places you would never think of driving. Thanks Gene for a wonderful first visit to Ireland. We will be back!!
