Ireland may be bad in the cities but its still worth a visit to the villages around rural Ireland, they at least still hold some of the old ways.

I know many pubs that still stay open till 4am , the local Garda turns a blind eye and the local town drunk stills sings up the Ra.

I think he is better to stay away and keep his memories untainted by the disgusting reality of what we have fallen to.

Well it would be of great interest to hear your account. I assume you have a spouse to accompany you. Otherwise save a few quid and visit Boston. I have met people that got fantastic bargains in the off season. One couple got a long weekend and put into the Park Plaza Hotel for I think he said about 700 euro.

Here you go 1620 dollars . 3 nights in a downtown hotel plus flights for 2 people.

Why go to Tipperary and meet RockofCashel when you can go to Boston and meet Youngdan

I dunno if I would agree. The beach in Brighton is covered with stones.
Perhaps it is the naked bathing area which makes Brighton's beach so special to Plastic Paddy :cool:

Serious question - what would make Boston worth the trip? Do they have any particular tourist attractions?
