heh I guess you could add to that "Dont actually bother visiting Ireland, its not worth it"


Posted by THE_Chris on Jul-28-2006 23:01:

Heres some more Irish ones ->

http://www.buseireann.ie/site/home/ <- Irish Buses, outside of Dublin
http://www.dublinbus.ie/home/ <- Dublin Bus
http://www.luas.ie/ <- Dublins attempt at a tram service

I stand by my original comment though

Bear in mind if you're visiting its better to have someone pick you up at the airport. Neither Dublin nor Cork airports have any rail links, and are served by generally unreliable, dirty buses. Or fork out for a taxi.

And if you're going out by rail from Dublin, bear in mind also that the main stations are NOT connected. Get the bus as its a 30-40 minute walk.

Also note that if you get a hire car etc at Dublin airport, you'll probobly spend up to 2 hours getting out of Dublin, due to traffic on the M50.

And despite the fact that you can buy a ticket for Dublins LUAS tram system from a station on the Red line to one on the Green line, THE TWO LINES ARE NOT ACTUALLY CONNECTED. You have to walk about 500m between them.

I'm landing at Heathrow on the weekend. What's the quickest way to Sheffield from there ?

I would guess train to Paddington (Heathrow Express) then tube to Kings Cross/St Pancras and then train from St. Pancras.

Alternatively if money is tight get the tube from Heathrow to Kings Cross/St Pancras (this would be £5 instead of £15/20 on Heathrow Express).

This would be quicker (just) than the coach although the coach would be direct and cheaper. The coach would be National Express.


Posted by Ian on Apr-03-2007 10:22:

national express do many routes which is handy. about 4.5 hours up to sheffield way. We often use their airport route which is nottingham east midlands. then if you get a bus to long eaton you can get onto a train to sheffield either via derby or nottingham.


Posted by Ian on Apr-03-2007 10:23:

or you could get on the electric line, im not sure which station in london, travel upto east retford which is is nottinghamshire then change & get a local line to sheffield, which is about 25-30 mins more. total journey 3-4 hours ish depending on timings


Posted by Hypersky on Apr-04-2007 07:58:

Thanks for the info guys. I'm wondering if there's any way to fly from London to Sheffield...or is there no airport there ?

its only 4 hours on the coach or 3 on the train, so i'd be surprised if there were flights


Posted by smshnick on Apr-09-2007 21:47:

nightclubs in London?

I'm staying in the West End at the end of May... are there any decent nightclubs there? Is this a really foolish question?

Interesting to hear a few people commenting on how bad the UK is.

I've lived in Australia for about a year now. Trust me - England is a great counrty. I suppose it's a case of "you don't know what you've got until it's gone", or something like that.

Nice weather here but that's about it. Just be thankfull that the UK has an unbeleivable dance scene, and there's plenty of work, transport is briliant etc....


Posted by THE_Chris on Apr-02-2008 10:26:

Brilliant UK transport?

Visit the M25 thesedays, or have a look at the failure of the M6 Toll. Then have a trip down the A3 to Hindhead, and wish the tunnel was open to bypass that place
