I received the following PM overnight and feel the individual concerned would be better served by posting their query on the forum:
We are staying at the Adare Manor Villas in July. We are 4 adults in our 60's. We know that the manor will be closed. Suggestions of activities---is there water nearby? I have to look at a map to calculate driving distances. We fly into Dublin and it looks it will take us about 2.5 hours to get to Adare. What unit of currency does Ireland use? I am assuming we can change money after we get off the plane. Any suggestions for the best place to do this?
Any suggestions to visit? Would it make sesne to go to see the Atlantic Ocean ( are there beaches?) or would that be too far? THanks for your help.
This is my response -
I can't understand why you didn't post this on the forum considering you have already posted on the forums. You would be far better served.
I also think you need to start looking at guide books. If you don't know what currency Ireland uses (the Euro is used in the Republic, Sterling is used in Northern Ireland) then you need to do more research.
I'm going to post this on the forums for a number of reasons:
1. More people will chip in and give you better ideas.
2. Others will benefit from the advice.
3. A few years ago I made a decision not to engage in providing information via PM that was not private and personal.
As promised I will respond with information.
