My friend and I are traveling to Dublin from the US in October 2013. My friends family has ties to Ballymalis Castle. I am wondering if anyone could help us decide which is the best way for us to travel from Dublin to the castle (ruins). We are not planning on renting a car (not comfortable driving a stick shift and on the other side of the road) would there be a one-way trip to Killarney that someone would suggest. Also, need some advise on where to stay once we get there. We will need to get back to Dublin after a couple of days in Kerry/Cork to catch an early flight out back to Heathrow. We should probably get back to Dublin the night before our flight/stay at teh airport that night?
Thank you in advance for all your help and suggestions....oh one more question. Do the Irish celebrate OCTOBER FEST??? Thanks, Glasgowgal
