When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

German family in Ireland

Post by fkott » Sat Jun 02, 2012 6:38 am

Hi all,

we are a german family ( 8) :x :o :) ), who want's to discover Ireland via Geocaching. We travel this summer trough south Ireland. We start in Dublin and travel along the coast to Kenmare. We don't want to go all the same way as all the other tourist, but we would like to dicover beautiful regions/views or historical interesting places/buildings or must gone hiking trails with geocaching.

Therefore we would kindly ask you all, for your recommendations. Our interest are single or multi caches, Mysteries are a bit difficulty in a foreign language and we don't have internet access during our trip.

Thanks for all your help and I think we will report after our trip about our experiences and impressions.

You are very welcome. One that is in a tourist area, even a geocaching tourist area is Europe's First, but I will still recommend it as the area is also beautiful.

Welcome and hope you enjoy your stay.

Internet access is available in all McDonalds (you just have to load a webpage and click on the link to gain access), most hotels and some camp sites so if you have a laptop or tablet then you will be online.

How will you travel? I second Balder in saying GC43 is definitely one you should search for even if only for its history (oldest cache outside USA). Are you a premium member? I will keep an eye here and see if I can add to the enjoyment of your trip.

This is one of five caches placed in the Devil's Glen Woodland. It is a nice walk and the Glen has a number of strange sculptures placed along the trails through the Glen.

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... ?wp=GCVGEJ

At the Hook Head lighthouse. One of my personal favourite caches in the SE

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC12B44 (Great bit of history and a cache to boot)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC1438T (one of the better earth caches)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC1JN06 (interesting geology park)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC2AZ9H (cache is only okay but the castle is worth visiting)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC2DT29 (Fort is well worth a look)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... ?wp=GC810F (great History off the beaten track)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC1GJTF (nice walk, great views)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... ?wp=GCG7Q3 (very close to the last one, highly rated)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC2R5A8 (little field puzzle for something different)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... wp=GC27N02 (nice waterfall, short but steep walk)

Kept my choices close to the coast and with a variety of walks, views and history. Plenty of other good ones.

Dear friends,

thanks for the replay. We have checked out the cache list and most of the recommendations, we will go for.
If somebody has more caches, we should discover, please don't hesitate to post them.

But we have another question. We got a tablet and need a prepaid card, just for an internet connection.
What's the best, we can get in case of availability and price?

Thanks for your help.

I work in IT and we have vodafone and 02

O2 tends to have best signal. Does your tablet have a built in gsm?
