it's me again, tapl / suzy_long :
on 5oct09,we would be reaching dublin at 1320 hrs (after a 17 hrs flight-with one stopover in between-and if the flight is on time), clear immigration & customs and then take the 748 bus to heuston & catch the 1500hrs train to killarney. (no, we cannot alter the itinerary, our tour operator has pre-arranged this & we have already paid them)
now, this being so hectic & tiresome, we are planning to stay overnight at a dublin hotel(at our own expense) close to heuston station. the next day (i.e. 06oct), get a fresh start & catch the 0900hrs train to killarney.
(which is more crowded the 0900hrs or 1100hrs train)
(standard class-should we get reservation,it's tues)
we would be willing to 'splurge' about 70-80 euro for a 3* hotel - preferably near heuston station (breakfast,taxes,vat... all included)
btw: i am always inclined to visit a mercedez showroom & ask to be charged the toyota price - know what i mean...)
