Oh my gosh! I CAN NOT TELL you how wonderful this video was!!! I've been researching and trying to plan a full but inexpensive trip to Ireland for almost two weeks now, and you have taught me all of the things I was struggling to find!!! I wish I could pay you. Really, I just can't say how much relief this information has given me. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Norrie from California traveling alone.
Thank you for this! Was thinking about going to Ireland however I think I will pass for now. My children are still younger (6,11) and I honestly don't want to drive on the left with them. I'm not that great of a driver as it is. We went to Italy and was able to get around fantastic with just public transportation and was hoping to add Ireland in. I will wait until they are older and not fighting as much and distracting me. You sound very professional and I enjoyed watching.
Thank You for sharing....we want to take 2 of our teenage grandchildren to the UK next march (2020) so we are trying to gather all the helpful information. Our trip will be much faster than yours as we only have about 2 weeks. We are going to fly into Edinburgh, then we want to visit London, Dublin then back to Edinburgh. We are trying to find as many ways to enjoy our time and watch the budget. One nice thing Is there are free things to do in every city . I will definetly try the Airbnb as we will be sleeping over in each city and want to find something not too expensive.I will be checking out your other videos..Thanks again!
Amazing video thank you me and dad are going here next year you saved us a lot of time and money plus I’ve basically been doing the same research glad I’m not the only one. Again looks amazing can’t wait to go
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.
