is it not 'alt Gr' and '4' at the same time! wolla €!!!

as for buses from dublin, save urself the hassel of gettin a bus into the city centre and changing to another bus, Citylink(should be on the web, try citylink.ie) run direct from the airport into dublin city and onto galway without any hassel and feck all difference in price! worse thing bout galway airport is there is no right bus service so its all bleedin taxi's but it aint that far out should cost less than €10(see i used it), but wouldnt count on those over chargin basts!

Bit of advice Jas. Try and avoid the usual tourist traps of Connemara, Dingle, Blarney and Westport. If you are into "Oirish"ness and leprauchans fire away. If you want to discover the real Ireland stay in or near one of the big towns or cities. Dublin, Galway & Cork are great craic especially if you hook up with other backpackers/tourists. BTW whoever said we're not web-oriented is having a laugh. Ireland is probably the most heavily tech dependent country in the EU with the likes of Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and Intel basing their European HQs here. Another example of the difference between the reality of this country and what you see in tourism ads.

yeh thanks KerranJast-i dont want to go to the tourist places really!

Can anyone recommend any laid back places??? i'm now thinking to make it a lot cheaper and easier to get a plane straight to somewhere-rather than going to dublin then getting a bus/train into galway etc.-its just hassle and i want it to run smooth!

I wish i didnt faff about so much!

sorry that souldve been coras, feckin keyboard and my fat digits i need a dialling wand(please mash key pad to order)!!!

the touristy places are grand people know where they are and if they want to avoid em they do, but if you go to a big town or city its all the same cause there's more to life there than just tourism, its not the sole provider in the place!!!!
