Quoting ponchik

Buzzcock, maybe you also know what is the best way to arrive to Belfast from Dublin? I tried to look it up on the Translink website, but did not find it. Thanx!

Surprised that you couldn't find details on the Translink site. Alternatively you could try Bus Eireann. In fact here's the Timetable as a pdf.

Alternatively you could go by train.

Belfast - Dublin - Belfast trains....
No need to book on-line. You can buy them at the ticket offices in both cities. The trains are frequent and the fast ones only take a couple of hours or so.

caznemoy, thank you for the car rental websites and for the info! I think we'll manage with the camping somehow. There are two of us, just me and my husband, I will definitely look for apartments, I think it's a very good solution, we did that in Rome and it worked out fine.

I actually had one more question - I heard there's a village, or an island in Ireland (or maybe more than one? forgive me, unfortunately, I'm not that fluent in Irish history), where each family had their own special way of brick-laying, which is preserved until now). We would really love to see that, too.

Thanx again!

Redpaddy, thanx, we won't bother with on-line booking then.

Buzzcock, thank you for the timetable! What would be preferable, actually - a train or a bus?

Rudradeb, thanks for the tip on Donegal and the midges!

As for Scotland - we weren't actually planning a long trip there, just hopping to Edinburgh and back, and then going to Ireland, but if you strongly recommend those places, we might reconsider...

Hi Ponchik..

Im not aware of any places like that really..many counties in Connaght in particular Roscommon and County Galway have stone walls that surround fields (farmers land)..they can be quite asthetically pleasing but i doubt thats what your looking for..

Il ask around and see if any of my friends or work collegues are aware of such a place..

Chat later
