Hi Lil J,

I have just got back from ireland and I was thinking of moving over there, so did a tour around to have a look.

Galway is great and has plenty of work opportunities, but West port and Dingle were brilliant too.

We did a tour run by vagabond, it was a 4x4 adventure tour and we had a great time. They took us to loads of beautiful places and gvae masses of information too. Plus some good honest adveice on moving over.

Good luck

I mean it's only going to be a short weekend break type of thing.

westport and dingle are good auld craic thats true, but this time of year they're a tad quiter than galway(though westport is always kinda crazy) its just they're a little smaller, theres an awful lot to do in galway even if it is pissin rain!!!!!!!!! now about this not making sense bit i feel i'm perfectly able to make sense of whatever it is i'm tryin to say! kinda thing, you see!

Ok so is it feasible to fly from london to dublin and then from dublin aiport to get a bus to galway??

Does 16 euro's sound about right for a single from dublin to galway0as somehow i think ive read wrong!

You are in euro's are you not?

hey jas

yeah fly ryanair LDN to DUB....check the website. if you book early and get a morning flight you can get it for about €0.99.

Then you will need to get the Airlink bus into Dublin City Centre...this will drop you at the main bus station. From here you can get hourly buses to Galway.

€16 sounds about right.

are u thinking of coming soon?

(btw havent seen u around for a few days. YOU HAVENT BEEN WORKING HAVE YOU? )
