We're arriving around noon in DUB on Wednesday where we'll stay though Sunday. We'll be travelling with a 2 year old and an 8 month old. We want to go to Belfast to see the Titanic museum. Does it make sense to just go for the day, or does it make more sense to spend the night and come back on Friday?

FWIW there are same day return train tickets that are cheaper than a return ticket on different days.

I don't know what else there is to do in Belfast (do some research to see), but if nothing else, you can come back that night. Museum takes a nice amount of hours if you go slowly (which for a fan, makes sense). You'll be cutting it close to missing closing time of the next-door shipyard where the ship was actually built. We missed it when we went, so can't comment on how worth it it is.

Thanks. As of now we'll just say in DUB. Thanks.

Anyone ever spend shabbos in Dublin with kids who can't walk (ie you're stuck inside all shabbos with them)? Where did you stay? What did you do for meals? Were you able to walk to a shul?

This might be a useful site for those looking http://www.jewishireland.org/ The site includes a section on where to buy kosher food (very limited) and places to stay near the only active shul in Dublin. There is a chabad rabbi in Dublin who might be able to help the last poster with his query on where to stay with kids who can't walk although as far as I am aware there is no Eruv.

You're quite right. I know of that site and even have a handbook out together by the shul specific to summer 2018. Unfortunately it doesn't list a place to stay with kids near shul.

Does anyone know of any place near the shul that's suitable for kids on shabbos? Airbnb has practically nothing, and the few things they do have are really expensive. There are a few cheap guest houses listed on the shul's official list, but most look really bad. Has anyone here ever even stayed in Dublin for shabbos?
