My girlfriend and I are going to Eire in August for a week, and I'd love some suggestions. I thought we would spend 3-4 days in Dublin and then take the train to Galway for a couple more days. But the only thing set in stone is that we arrive in Dublin on one Saturday, and depart from Dublin the following Saturday. We have not yet booked places to stay. What's the best use of our time?

Can I still check through a bag from US to Dublin Airport to Rome Airport if I leave the Dublin International Terminal 2 for a seven-hour layover at a Dublin airport hotel? [more inside]
I'll be in Dublin for just one day next month on my way to southern Ireland. I'd like to stay someplace good enough, but not super spiffy, since my stay is so short. I got the name of one place but it's $210 per night. I'd love to find something just a bit cheaper. Since I'm only there a day, central location is key, as I expect I'll just wander around. Any firsthand recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I’ll be in Ireland in October, but won’t be able to rent a car (no license). Is it enough of a disadvantage that I’d be better off visiting just Dublin, leaving other areas to be properly explored with a car on my next trip? [more inside]

We are looking to take advantage of the current extraordinary airfare rates to Ireland. We would like to plan a trip similar to our week in the Cotswolds a few years ago, but we don't know enough about Ireland to be secure in our choices. [more inside]

We are planning a trip to Ireland in late August and had a high-level question for the world-travelers here. Our flights are both in and out of Dublin and have accommodations for both ends of the trip in Dublin. My question is regarding the rest of the trip and how important it is to book rooms for every night of our stay. [more inside]

We are docking in Cobh in mid-June and have about 7-9 hours in the area. We would love to see the famous Irish greenery and landscape but aren't interested in the really touristy things like Blarney. Cork and Cobh both sound worth seeing, but will we get a flavor of the countryside in that area, or should we travel to the Ring of Kerry and try to see some highlights there? Thanks, hive mind!

What to do/where to stay for 24 hours near Shannon Airport in September. We're two adults flying from the U.S. into Shannon early Sunday morning and need to be back at the airport on Monday to meet with a group of people. Basically, trying to figure out where we should go for the day, spend the night, and (hopefully) something interesting to do on Sunday while we get used to the time change. Transport info would be nice, too.

Which pay as you go SIMs should we buy in Ireland that will allow us to access data in the UK as well? We are spending time in both Ireland and the UK (flying into Shannon), so we would like one service that will work in both countries. [more inside]

We're planning an 8 to 12 day vacation in Ireland this summer (late June / early July) for 11 people (mostly Canadian) ages 1 through 70. Looking for suggestions for family-friendly places to stay, things to see, ways to get about. [more inside]

I know nothing of Ireland. I've been reading past questions and asking the Internet. Will be landing in Dublin with SO and 9month old kid. Have car hired. Have 2.5 weeks. Need to be in Limerick for a work thing at some point but otherwise we can go anywhere driveable. [more inside]

My (almost) 70 year old father and I will be travelling to Dublin for ten days next week on the (unexpectedly!) second anniversary of a father/daughter trip in which he golfs and I occupy myself with books and booze. Help me not miss the best parts [more inside]

I will be renting a car at Dublin airport in mid-july, and driving to near Galway. The prices online are insanely low. I frankly do not believe them. [more inside]

Thanks to the UK border agency inconveniently scheduling my visa start date, I have to leave the UK and re-enter after 15 Dec. Since flights were very cheap to Dublin, I decided to book a flight to Dublin, stay an evening, then fly back. I'll be by myself. I've never been to Dublin. What should I do? [more inside]

You know when you get a recommendation on travel and you go in a place in a random city and there are locals there and they say something like "yeah, we love this place, but how did YOU know about it?" Well, do you have any current suggestions like that - food, drink, or other - for Dublin, Ireland, tonight through this weekend? Even the touristy places are great here but I'd love any insider info. Cheers and thank you in advance for any advice.

By mistake my company has booked me double baggage allowance for my flight to Dublin for a conference, so I have a capacity of 46kg. I live in London. What kind of heavy yet-hard-to-get in the UK thing should I buy to make the most of this? My only thought was a case of whisky or possibly a very large amount of Guinness. I only have one free morning (Thursday), which is also the day I fly out. Is there anything I'm not thinking of?

We have one day in Dublin on Friday (flight gets in at 8:30 am, have to be back at the airport by 5pm). Can we reasonably find interesting things to do in that time? Parks to walk through, a good place for a pub lunch (and World Cup watching?) or just interesting things to see in the vicinity such that we could get back to the airport in time would be great.
