Help For Trip To Ireland

Fri Oct 20, 2006 7:52 am

I'm crying out to all air netters in ireland. I'm planning a trip to ireland. I want to fly from Prestwick to shannon then fly out of dublin to prestwick. I'm after cheap rooms for 1 person in shannon/limerick for 2 nights and then 2 nights in dublin. Dates 5th dec to the 9th dec.

Any help would be great

You don't need cheap accomodation as the flight costs are virtually nothing with FR !

PIK-SNN, 5/12, dep 1135 arr 1240, total cost stg£ 6.98
DUB-PIK, 9/12, dep 805 or 1220, total cost € 10.98

All available on the FR website just now

For hotels rooms that are relatively inexpensive but clean, try the Jurys Inns - locations in both Dublin and Limerick

Actually, it's presently £6.99 PIK-SNN and 10.99 EUR (£7.35) DUB-PIK. Both including tax and fees. To avoid paying extras, don't pay by credit card, but by debit instead (much smaller fee); don't have checked-in luggage (£3.50 per 1 bag), but rather carry-on; and don't select insurance (£5).

Will you be flying DUB-SNN on EI 330? Not that Limerick and Dublin are far apart by public transportation...

Hi BMED,

I've stayed last year in the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel of Limerick.

www.kilmurrylodge.com

It was not so expensive and had a great service.

About Dublin, I know a cheap hotel. Mount Herbert Hotel, in the 4th District, near the Road Rugby Stadium.

www.mountherberthotel.ie

Hope it helps,

Gerard

Cheers guys. I am now flying FR to and from DUBLIN as because I am travelling on my own it seems expensive for a single room. Managed to find a youth hostel for £6.99 a night. Thanks though for all the advice.

Best of luck BMED - I dread to think what a bed for c. € 10 a night in Dublin will be like !! Enjoy your trip

Eh? I very frequently stay in hostels on my travels, that's why, despite a good job, I can travel for 3+ months a year while still saving £1400/month. Cheap, good fun, nice to meet other people, etc. Better than a boring, sterile hotel environment.

Anyway, for reviews, visit: www.hostelworld.com.

Most hostels are fine. Anyway, you are only there at night and as I'm planning quite a few of these trips while at uni its a lot cheaper.
