    Ireland: How expensive to visit?

    So Ireland is my dream location. It's the one place in the whole world I want to visit. Alright, there are a couple of others (Paris, Australia) but if I could only visit one last country, it would be Ireland. I got a guide book out from the library the other day and it got me all excited about finally planning my trip for it.

    I'm trying to find some accurate estimates of how much things cost there...hotels, food, car rental, etc, but this will be my first trip I'm planning alone, so I'm not really sure how to go about doing that. So I was wondering if there was anyone on here who'd visited Ireland and could give me a bit of an idea of what to expect?

    Re: Ireland: How expensive to visit?

    Ireland is one place that I want to visit too. It's a beautifully picturesque place, the countrysides look fabulous. I wanted to study in Dublin because I've heard it's one of the best cities in the world for students, but then the "euro" living costs made me change my mind.


    Anyway here are some links, hope they help.

    Google is your best friend. It also depends where exactly you want to go to. In bigger cities you might find cheap hostels whereas on the countryside it might be some kind of a bed & breakfast thing which will be a lot better quality but maybe a bit more expensive.

    Anyway, it's not going to be super expensive compared to the rest of Europe so the price shouldn't stop you.

    Ireland is right at the top of my list, too. So gorgeous and rich in history. I agree about Google....only you know the specifics of what you really want, what you can afford, etc. Just put in the time and research and I'm sure it'll work out just fine .

    Re: Ireland: How expensive to visit?

    Thanks everyone! And thanks Eudora13 for the links! If anyone's been to Ireland, I'd love any recommendations on where to go and what to see. The guide book I got from the library had an interesting suggestion that's it best to stay in Dublin, then say Belfast which was the other place I was considering, as there's more in Dublin, easier to get to other places from there, plus apparently it's not too expensive to take the train from there up to Belfast so it's a much better central location so to speak.

    I've never been to Ireland but usually the capital city is a good central location. They are tourist friendly and the transportation is almost certainly a lot better than in other regions. On top of that, just like I said earlier, you should be able to find some low quality hostels if you are traveling on a tight budget.

    Re: Ireland: How expensive to visit?

    Ireland is one of my dream vacations as well. I want to take my mother and father there one day. I don't think it's that expensive, because I had a teacher's assistant at school who was still in school, and him and a friend went on a trip and got a pretty cozy bed and breakfast to stay in at a very low cost. It was so cool because wild animals would come right up to his door and say hello. It's so much different than here in the US!

    I'm an American currently living in Ireland. It's not much pricier than other places. Yes Dublin tends to be a bit more expensive than other cities in Europe, but you just need to know where to go, there are tons of places, like little pizza or sandwich shops, where you can get a decent dinner for five euro. hHostels are also a cheap way to go, depending how old you are, of course they don't have age limits, but I've found anyone over 30 prefers to spring for the bed and breakfasts even though they're a bit more pricey. You can also get a bus to pretty much anywhere from dublin for pretty cheap, it will take longer, but its cost effective. Try to avoid tourist traps like temple bar. A pint will cost you about 4-5 euro elsewhere but maybe even up to 10 in super touristy places because they assume tourists din't know any better. Local pubs tend to be the way to go.

    Re: Ireland: How expensive to visit?

    I fly to Ireland on a budget airline (I think it was Easyjet) and stayed at a friend's house while I was there. The prices weren't that high compared to England. But as others have pointed out, you can easily estimate your costs if you look up the prices on google. By the way if you get to Ireland, I wouldn't recommend swimming in the ocean.. I saw locals in the water and thought it would be fun to go for a swim as well and almost froze to death

    Ireland is dream world i know but i think its little bit expensive now most museums and many art galleries are free. If you make a rough plan of where you would like to visit but peoples and culture of this Land is fantastic, checking websites will tell you about prices

    Pricing always needs to be adorable for the person and most importantly 2 day tour from new york to niagara falls is there which is a factor and that is when we get to have ideas with many concepts which are generally existing.
