Oh I am so happy I found this video. I have wants to go to Ireland for many years and thought it would be out of my reach. You have shown me it is affordable and I'm looking forward to booking my trip. Thank you
I wish I would have seen this a year ago. We did round trip on the QM2. Stayed 2 nights in Windsor then flew to Ireland for 7 days. Flew back to London for one more night and then back to Southampton to catch the ship back to NYC. We stayed for 3 days before flying back to STL. Between the multiple flights, TA crossings, hotels etc., we spent over $40k. It will be a while before we get another vacation.
This is really great info. I was looking into Air BandB and was trying to centralize my family and I for the most part near trains so we can avoid driving (OMG I just know I will drive on the wrong side!).
Hint: When we were there the locals told us to go to a gas station and purchase a sticker which was simply a capital letter "L" on a white background about 6" x 8" which you could put in you car to signify you were a learner at driving. (I forget where it needed to be placed, but ask, they will tell you.) Other drivers will go out of their way to be courteous and extra patient with you, especially when you are learning to navigate roundabouts the first few times. Think this is one of the best ideas ever that should be adopted universally!
One tip you didn't mention is that if you're visiting multiple historical sites owned by the Irish state you can buy a card giving you entry to all for a potentially lower price http://www.heritageireland.ie/en/info/heritagecards/
My husband and I are planning on going to Ireland in a few months and are struggling on whether or not to rent a car. That's what our initial plans were but we got concerned about the insurance. What did you do to avoid the car rental place ripping you off.
You won't be ripped off, we have strict laws for that, but without a car you are very limited. Public transport in Ireland is not very effective and you will have to depend on taxis. Just rent a car and if you can't afford that, look into organized bus tours. You will be driven around the country and visit the usual tourist traps but it might be a bit cheaper.
What a great video! Mike, you hit on so many important areas. I loved the photos! I'm so glad you and Elly got to go on this trip. She will remember it forever. As will you, but the youngin' you know.... I still tell stories of when me and Dad did.... Thanks for the video and sharing the great memories with us. Now it's time for a family trip!! LOL!
Fantastic video and a lot of your travel tips apply for most of Europe as we did similar in terms of planning for italy recently. New role as travel vlog channel for your retirement plans I think! You can tell that a lot of care was taken in the voice over, well done. 💖
Thank you for sharing this wonderful video of your trip to Ireland. I really enjoyed it! It warmed my heart! I am happy that you both enjoyed yourselves. And, I appreciate all of your tips and the resources you discovered and shared. You are gifted photographers and editors....
Move over Rick Steves your replacement is on his way! Seriously Mike, you may have missed your calling. I can definitely see your PBS roots. Your attention to detail is shining bright. It's good to see this facet of your talent. Beautiful job! Very informative.
Many thanks Mike and Elly! What a pleasent video. Thank's for all the information and tips, what to do and not to do! I have never been to Ireland but it would be quite easy to go there without getting a JET LAG for me, Sweden is just 1 hour ahead from Ireland and 1700$ for 3 1/2 weeks vacation here in Europe is quite a nice sum. So thank's again!
Excellent video. Your narration as well as the videos were fantastic. You made me want to go there. I’m glad you got to spend that amount of time and experiences with your daughter. What wonderful memories she will have to tell her children.
You sounded like a professional travel announcer... did a wonderful job. Loved the pics of you daughter and that is a life long memory for her. Knorpp and South family of 9 are in Ireland right now too.. :)
Is it possible to cut other costs out of your life while you save? some examples: makes meals at home rather than eat out, cut cable and use the only the internet, don't buy daily coffee, plan your meals in advance to cut down and store trips and food waste cut down on alcohol, cigarettes or other unnecessary expenses. my friends And I do not exchange presents for birthdays and Christmas, we give each other treats like a homemade card and cakes (I really don't need anything, I'd rather save my money for travel), these are just some ideas, depends on your situation.
