I am trying to help my brother plan his trip to Ireland May 2008. He already purchased tickets and will be traveling with one friend. He is a 21 year old college student seeking economical travel, willing to stay in hostils, and hoping to see many things in Ireland. Any suggestions how/where to start planning. Things to do/look for or not to do/look for? How to find info on Hostils, or travel suggestions? THANKS!

    Sounds good – first of all go to the website of Bord Failte Eireann for hostels, B&Bs etc. Might be best if you can hire a car – public transport beyond the main routes (and on some of them) is still not up to main European standards.

    Things to do? Dublin and Galway are a must, and try to hear Irish traditional music – also, this means you’ll be enjoying some fun pub nights. Go to a GAA hurling or Gaelic football match, try a day’s sea fishing, get to a race meeting if you can.

    That’s just for starters – any ideas, anyone else?

    ok well hire a car as its the best way to get around. make sure you go to dublins sights and take the dublin bus tour. head to galway and go to connemara and cork kerry and clare all have wonderful things kerry is a must go place and there is a nice hostil in killarney kerry(cant remember the name). in kerry do the ring of kerry and the Gap of Dunloe is gorgeous and so is muckross house!! in cork go to the blarney woolen mills for a taste of the old irish culture and go to blarney castle to!!
