Awesome! I have a co-worker that just moved to the states a year ago who was born and raised in Cork but I believe he lived in Dublin for for most of his adult life. Heís putting together a list of places to hit up.

I'm currently one of the few RBs over here in Ireland - plenty of interesting stuff popping up here and there beer-wise, and (hopefully!) the decent beer revolution should properly be kicking off in the June of '14! Although MolsonCoors have just bought one of our biggest brewpubs...so who knows what'll happen next! Not sure if I'll still be living in Dublin next year, but if I am then I'll meet you folks for a beer or ten for sure!

Hi - I live in the south west - specifically Killarney in Kerry. Ring of Kerry has great scenery. Dingle peninsula is worth seeing. Can also recommend west Cork. Clare - Burren / Cliffs of Moher have been mentioned and are worth seeing. Also Galway/Mayo and the west generally.

Weíre a bit short of craft beers here in Ireland - Porterhouse(s) in Dublin are about as far as it goes as far as brew pubs go - but some places try ... we have a place here in Killarney that keeps some non-multinational beers(bottles).

Travelling around - your best bet is car Iím afraid - though the rail network is ok.

We should consider splitting shipping cost and send a big ole box of Wisconsin and Florida brews to one of these gents before we leave and put together a nice tasting!

Truth!

However, we can probably just wrap up brews in our suitcases for cheaper/same. Thereís just that whole worry about them busting and messing up our luggage!

My wife and I have been on tours to many different parts of the country. We enjoyed everywhere we went. Have a great time!

Yeah just put them in individual grocery bags or zip lock bags, wrap them in clothes and pop them into your suitcases ! Iíve done it a gazillion times.
