It is so exciting that you and your friend are planning on visiting this summer, and I would love to see what I can do to help! :)
You've chosen some wonderful places to visit, and all of them are easily reached by public transport
. Have you sorted out the schedules and routes yet? If you could use some help, I would be more than happy to point you in the right direction!
For which parts of the journey would you need to bring your large suitcase with you?
When you are travelling on one of the Bus Éireann coaches, or coach services in Northern Ireland
, you can bring your small suitcase on the bus, and your large suitcase can be placed in the luggage compartment. You can read more about the terms and conditions on the Bus Éireann website
, and the Translink website
On the train you can bring your luggage with you, as long as everything is safely put away in the overhead compartments or luggage racks near the carriage ends and in between seats. Take a look at the Irish Rail page
for more information. The same rules apply for travelling by train in Northern Ireland with Translink
Are you thinking of going on guided (bus) tours
around the island as well? It's a great way to see and learn about sightseeing spots and attractions on the island.
I hope this was helpful, and please don't hesitate to get in touch if there is anything else you need.
