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.

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

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