Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh or Glasgow??

by LeandroPires

Hello everybody!

I’m going to spend some time in London in February; it won’t be y 1st time there.
I’m thinking about going to some other place (country) nearby.
I’ve read something about Scotland and Ireland. Both countries seemed to be really nice, so I’m still in doubt.

Considering the month I’ll be traveling, where would you travel for? Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh or Glasgow??
I am considering those cities now, but if you have any other suggestion, I’d be grateful.

Thanks!!

RE: Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh or Glasgow??

by clivedinburgh

If you fancy seeing a bit of the countryside enroute then try using the train services to either Edinburgh or Glasgow, journeys take 4-5 hours which isn't too much longer than flying when you factor in the journey to & from the airport and check-in times. When using the 1st link below look at the 2 singles could be cheaper tab as they invariably are, tickets are only available for journeys within 3 months so you may have to wait a short while before you can book. There is also a train and ferry offer to Dublin shown on the 2nd link below. As to which city to visit then it's up to your own preferences but you should have a great time in whichever one you choose.

by nathanjrutherford

like previous reply, both are amazing countries, ive lived in edinburgh for couple of years and would have to say is one of most beautiful cities in europe, good nightlife/pubs, history, friendly, easy to get around, also central to get to other places like inverness, isle of skye,stirling and glasgow but not nearly as good,

also checkout megabus.com for cheapest travel around, ive travelled ireland as well, but gun to head, SCOTLAND

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Go see one of the festivals....

by chanzey

Go see one of the festivals. All summer long Edinburgh is full of music, theatre, dance and comedy. There also is a book festival and a film festival and the Military Tattoo on the square in front of the castle.

The Fringe Festival is excellent. The city is really crowded during July and August, but September is much better. And there still are a lot of things worth seeing.

A Romantic Place for a Wedding

by scottishvisitor

Although the tiny St. Margaret's Chaple is the oldest building in Edinburgh Castle it is still very much in use today. In years past it was only officers garrisoned here at the castle who could get married in the chaple but times have changed with troops needed in less peaceful places. So if you fancy a totally different venue for a Wedding - check out the famous Chaple.

South Queensferry

by MalenaN

South Queensferry is a picturesque village between the two Forth Bridges. It is situated on the south shore of Firth and Forth (Forth River) and from here ferries used to cross the river, before the bridges were built. In the village you will find some shops, cafes and pubs. There is a museum, but it is only open a few days a week (it was closed when I was there). In the vicinity there are two Houses to visit, Hopetoun House and Dalmeny House. April to October you can take a ferry over to Incholm Island to visit the ruins of the abbey.
South Queensferry lies 13 km west of Edinburgh city centre and is within the official boundaries of the city

Greyfriars Bobbie which is not...

by Kodi01

Greyfriars Bobbie which is not that far off the Royal Mile. My good friends know how I love dogs and I have a special story that is close to my heart.

The story of the Greyfriars Bobbie is about a dog who was so loyal to his master, that after he died, the dog was seen at the gravesite until he himself died.

Dogs are amazing, I have 2 of them that I love dearly.

Edinburghs Original "Style Bar"

by PA68 about CIty Cafe

The City Cafe is Edinburghs original "style bar". While I hate the term it seems to have been universally adopted so I'll use it to give you an idea of what to expect.

The bar slighly resembles a fifties style diner complete with booths and pool tables. While during daylight hours it may be starting to look a little rough around the edges, during the evening the place is usually so busy that you won't notice.

Sounds are usually some form of dance music with local DJs spinning in the downstairs bar. The place is usually a very popular stop on the pre-club circuit.

If you are hungry while walking about town during the day then there are worse places you could stop off for a club sandwich or a burger. I've never been turned away so it makes me think that there isn't one.
