Ireland Itinerary 2013

Okay, pretty much everything is locked down. This is the way my vacation is going to go – barring any last-minute changes, weather infringements, or errors of transit.

Friday, May 24, 2013

Fly out of Winnipeg. Leave 14:22, about a three-and-a-half-hour layover in Chicago, then on to Dublin. Arrive 9:25 Saturday morning.

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Arrive in Dublin on Saturday. Bus from airport to Grafton Street to set up iPhone/iPad (unless I can get a good roving package at home), then head to train station for train to Belfast. Stay at the Old Rectory (Booked!). Try for dinner at The Barking Dog.

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Get combined ticket from Belfast City Sightseeing for Hop On/Hop Off bus and Giant’s Causeway tour for £30 (booked, including admission for Crumlin Road Gaol tour). Spend today on the city tour. Things to check out:

  • Stormont Parliament Buildings
  • St. Anne’s Cathedral
  • Shankill Road and Falls Road, the Peace Wall and Murals
  • Titanic Quarter. This walking tour looks good, and I can join it at the Titanic Visitor Attraction. I haven’t been able to book this one yet; currently, they’re only booking up to the end of February. 10 £
  • Crumlin Road Jail
  • City Hall
  • Queen’s University

That’s probably enough for my first full day in Ireland.

Monday, May 27, 2013

Continue with the Hop On/Hop Off sightseeing. If there’s time, head out to Belfast Castle1 and climb Cave Hill. Need a whole after noon for that, though.

In the evening, try this ghost walk. £8. I’ve sent an e-mail to try and book this, but no response yet.

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Giant’s Causeway tour. (Booked!)

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Giant’s Circle – This looks like a good way to see this. Check with Mary at the Old Rectory to see if she has other suggestions. Free (bus fare). Can probably fit in a bus trip to Downpatrick and Down Cathedral to round out the day.

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Marble Arch Caves – Looks like a day trip by bus, but easily doable. 8.50 £ (plus bus fare).

Friday, May 31, 2013

Bus to Dublin Airport, change to Galway, change to Doolin. Leave Euorpa Bus Centre 12:00, arrive Doolin 19:45.

Stay at McGann’s Pub – Booked!

Saturday, June 1, 2013

Boat trip to the Aran Islands. Day trip to Inisheer and Cliffs of Moher combined trip from Doolin Ferries looks like a good bet. Booked for the 10:00 am trip!

Music in the pub tonight. Or if full, try one of the other pubs.

Sunday, June 2, 2013

See about getting to the Doolin Cave today, and maybe walk the Burren paths. Can probably walk to the cave, and there are nature paths around it.

Music in the pub tonight. Or if full, try one of the other pubs.

Monday, June 3, 2013

Take the Burren Cliff Walk at 10:00. Takes three hours, leaving and returning from O’Connor’s Pub in Fisher Street.

Music in the pub tonight. Or if full, try one of the other pubs.

Saturday, June 8, 2013

Take the Tynan Walking Tour in the morning (10:30 am). In the afternoon, go visit some of the sites that we didn’t get a lot of time at during the tour, walk the canal, etc.

Sunday, June 9, 2013

Take Kilkenny Taxi out to Dunmore Cave for a tour in the morning. In the afternoon, take Kilkenny Taxi out to Kells Priory.

Monday, June 10, 2013

Train to Dublin. Depart Kilkenny 8:28, arrive Dublin 10:00. Stay at Kilronan House – Booked!

I’ve got day tours booked for the first three days, but depending on when I arrive back in Dublin, I may be able to get in some other activities. Of course, this is getting near the end of the trip, so I may be tired enough to just want to eat and rest.

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Day tour: Wicklow Mountains, Glendalough, Malahide Castle – Booked!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Day tour: Tara, Newgrange, Monasterboice – Booked!

Day tour: Cashel, Blarney, Cork City – Booked!

Friday, June 14, 2013, and Saturday, June 15, 2013

Hop on/Hop off bus tour. Some sites to visit:

  • GPO. I saw the outside last time, but never went in.
  • Natural History Museum
  • Take a tour of Dublin Castle, especially the Chester Beatty library.
  • Take a tour of Christchurch Cathedral.
  • Take a tour of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and visit Marsh’s Library.
  • Take a tour of the Guinness Storehouse.

  • Phoenix Park and Dublin Zoo.
  • Take a tour of the Old Jameson Distillery.
  • Take a tour of the Custom House.

I’ve also booked the Irish Folklore and Storytelling Night at the Brazen Head for the evening of the 14th. Because it looks like fun.

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Fly back to Winnipeg. Leave at 11:25, about a two-hour stopover in Chicago, home in Winnipeg around 19:58.

  1. For some reason, I keep typing Dublin Castle when I want to type Belfast Castle, and have to go back and correct it. []

  10. 因为爱情,简单的生长,依然随时可以为你疯狂。 叶一今年毕业了。她回到桐镇,开始平静而又忙碌的生活。 欧美成人色图 她最爱桐镇的茶,泡出来是淡绿色的,格外的清新。茶的香味,很像莫相身上的味道。叶一不置可否的想起了他,想念后,是淡淡的遗憾。 叶一去书店要结账的时候,迎面不小心撞上了一个人。叶一抬起头,欣喜注入她的眼眸,是莫相。 她的心里一直有他,以至于他忽然出现在叶一的面前,多少有点无所适从。 他和她是同学,那时她16岁。他们总是在无意中遇见,顺其自然的认识。她感冒的时候,他轻轻替她关上北面的窗户。他逃课,陪她去图书馆看书。他不是轻易对别人打开心扉的人,在别人眼中是很冷漠

T中请记得感恩相对 文字:香袭书卷 雨果说:释放无限光明的是人心,制 人妻 造无边黑暗的也是人心。所以,这个世界的黑暗和光明全取决于人心的指向。 我一直想用我的笔墨来临摹世界的美好,写下那些温暖的点滴,我们都是平凡人,也是这些点滴中的暖意打动着我们的内心,让我们对世界充满了爱。也许是一束花香,也许是一句问候,也许是一段诗意,也许是一次邂逅。在你失望时,会有人出现在转角给你一个希望。在你彷徨时,会有人给你一个拥抱。在你哭泣时,会有人陪在你身旁。在你快乐时,有人和你分享。这就是力量,人性的力量。就是这些微不足道的给予,集结成了我们对世界的感知。你是一道光,就会带给别人一份光明。 阅读经典书籍,会发现作家的

  13.   十几年以来,我一直努力的做一个乖宝宝,让大人们觉得我很懂事。以至于,很多时候,我都会强迫自己。   这个暑假,妈妈每天给我的话,都是“快点做作业” 欧美成人色图 “待会晾一下衣服”“待会把衣服洗了”,说实话,我真的很讨厌做家务。但每次妈妈说这话过后,我却总是兴高采烈地答应,然后苦恼的面对那几件脏衣服。   大人们眼里的听话懂事是什么?听话,不过就是百依百顺、唯命是从。他们往往会给小孩定一个标准,只要我们达不到这个标准,那就是不听话、不懂事了。譬如:让我们去干家务,如果我们不去,没有完成他们订的标准,那么,我们就是不懂事了!   所以,违心的时候多了。   而坏孩子,也不是真正的坏孩子,他们不会做什么坏事,
