yay! i get to go to Ireland and Scotland in a week..just hoping ppl know good places i could go see in my free time there after all the stuff my mom already planned...i should be in Ireland for a week and then flying over to Scotland...cause we are going to a World Science Fiction convention ^_^

so if anybody knows some cool places to check out let me know.

Dank coo! :bow:
 
I don't know about Ireland but for the time that you're in Scotland I recommend seeing Stirling Castle for the excellent history on view.
Other places to see would be:
Loch Lomand
Glasgow
Edinburgh Castle
Edinburgh itself - Ha, ha that goes without saying, Edinburgh seems to be the tourist hotspot of Scotland.
Also if you travel outside of urban Scotland into the rural areas availible then you want to take a look at the various hills that can be walked such as the Campsie Hills.
Glengoyne distillery is popular too, it's only worth seeing if you like whiskey though. It's about twenty to thirty miles outside of Glasgow in the direction of Stirling.

hey, you are going to my home, thats great news

well, there are many things to see and do in ireland,
of course there is a lot of beautiful architecture in dublin such as the customs house

st patricks cathedral
ireland52.jpg

dublin castle and the list goes on

most of the museums are free to enter, including the national art and history museums

of course trinity library and go to irish pubs

if you have time to travel around ireland there are daytrips to glendalough where you can see a round tower and other very old irish buildings

Glendalough.megalithomania.jpg


its in wicklow where i am from and is called the garden of ireland and rightly so , but november is cold and dark so go early

if you can travel a bit farther you should see the rock of cashel in tipperary
it is one of my favorite places in ireland and it is historically one of the most important castles in ireland, without that castle ireland might be a viking nation today

closer to dublin is Newgrange, which is a fantasic place and they say its 5000 years old - the oldest building in europe

further away on the west coast there ar the cliffs of moher

Cliffs%20of%20Moher%2004.jpg


even yoda has visited there apparently
images


there are other places of course, i dont have time to name them all
but the Curragh is famous for racehorse and there is a japanese garden there
its also where many scenes from braveheart and saving private ryan were filmed

kilkenny is a beautiful city with an old castle and where i went to school

also bunratty castle
Bunratty,%20Co%20Clare.jpg


galway is famous for being the friendliest city in ireland

youll be able to see many traditional thatched cottages evebn today

and on a cold winter evening if you dont know what to do you should check out the - arthouse cinema , even if you dont watch a movie the atmosphere in the glass roofed courtyard is great and the food is pretty reasonable

you should go to bewleys oriental cafe for tea or coffee, not the one on grafton street though as it has gone a bit upmarket
bewleys is an irish instituiona nd there ued to be a branch in harajuku
sadly it is now an irish pub

temple bar is the dublin tourist spot and is quite cool but a bit more expensive than other places

irish food is nothing to brag about so please try the many foreign food retaurants

if you like chocolate, butlers could well be the most delicious in the world, so whatever you dont miss out, and the prices are reasonable too

ireland has become a little expensive though so bring plenty of cash or eat supermarket food

well, enjoy, all who are going to ireland :p

I'd love to visit the Giants Causeway, however, I will only be in Dublin and its surroundings....

I can only just IMAGINE myself standing on the rocks looking at the sunset... :wave:
 
I've been meaning to travel Ireland for sooo long now, it's quite sad I couldn't get to it yet.


The Cliffs of Moher look very impressive. I love great cliffs. There is something so very primal and simple to them that attracts me I think.


Just added another point on my travel list. :)
 
well,i ve never been in ireland or scotland,but i ve heard that people especially in ireland are much more friendly than th most people of europe.i m sure about that cause i ve watched some documantaries about this countries and both of them,i mean people from both countries seem to be very openhearted.i ve got to go sometime to both of countries in any case!

Hi,

I am about to move to Aberdeen for work and was trying to get some more info about where to live. I want somewhere inner city and quite trendy, near bars, restaurants cinema etc.

Any suggestions or general descriptions of the areas in Aberdeen?
