  1. Thanks Irish Eileen. I've been to the Cliffs of Moher myself; not been to Inishmore. Taking the family to Ireland for the first time. Our itinerary is a bit aggressive and I was looking to cut out a visit to the Cliffs of Moher because they're a bit out of the way from our main route. Some say if you see the cliffs of Inishmore, then you can safely give the Cliffs of Moher a miss. What do people think?
  2. Can anyone recommend a pub and/or restaurant on the Aran Island Inishmore? Also, can anyone recommend a good tour once on Inishmore and what are the going prices? We are driving directly to the ferry, and so won't be departing from Galway by bus. Around the web, I've seen Flaherty Tours recommended. But the tour operator's web site is currently suspended.
  3. Some reviews of Aran Island Ferries mention being able to see the Cliffs of Moher. I plan on taking the ferry from Rossaveal to Inishmore. Can you see the Cliffs of Moher on this route, or might people be confusing things with ferries to Inishmore out of Doolin?
  4. Thanks CB. Wasn't expecting anything spectacular out of CJ's; just something convenient (walking distance from the Kimpton Seafire Resort) and affordable (relatively speaking for Grand Cayman). :-)
  5. I've gotten good results here, but thanks for the TripAdvisor link. I'll check it out. Yep, taxi from the airport seems like the best choice for me personally.
  6. Thanks TB. It’s just two of us and we’ll be flying in. Decided on doing an overland holiday vs. a cruise this time. Glad to hear Calico Jack’s is so close. Seems like a popular place among CCers.
  7. That's great info, thanks bookbabe. Not bad at all. Great! Thanks again. I'm probably willing to walk 25 minutes or so to get to a restaurant. Anyone got any favorites in that area? My wife likes seafood and sushi but I don't like seafood of any kind. Neither do I have expensive tastes--prefer good casual food, and am always on a quest for the perfect pizza or burger.
  8. Thanks bookbabe. Will check out taxi fares. I rented a car once in Ireland for a week and never got used to it—told myself never again. My stay at the Kimpton is free using hotel points. Flights are free via frequent flyer miles. So I’m still very much on a budget. :-) My main concern is lack of affordable restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.
  9. Does anyone have photos or links to menus from the restaurants at the Kimpton Seafire Resort and Calico Jack's? Considering an overland trip to the Kimpton and it seems it's out of the way. Wanting to know what I'm getting into food wise. I won't have a rental car because I can't easily drive on the left side of the road. Assuming taxis are expensive as well. Or are they? Can anyone suggest restaurants not far from the Kimpton? And if so, do you have images of, or links to, menus. Hoping for more than just seafood as I'm not a seafood person.
  10. I'm planning an overland trip to Grand Cayman. Can I take a public bus from the airport to or near the Kimpton Seafire Resort? I won't have much luggage. I hear it's about a 15 to 20 minute ride. If not, approximately how much would a taxi cost and are the rides fixed or metered? Considered renting a car, as the Kimpton Seafire has free valet parking, but I can't get the hang of driving on the left side of the road.
  11. Thanks Cherie. Turns out we didn’t snorkel at all and mostly just enjoyed hanging out at our resort.
