Ireland - Whale and Dolphin Watching

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Ireland in August and would like to book a whale and dolphin watching trip. Any suggestions on where to go from? specific operators to use? I am familiar with Fungie, the Dingle Dolphin and I have decided to pass on that excursion because we hope to see both whales and pairs/pods of dolphins, not just a single dolphin. We have children ages 8 and 11. We will have our own car and our current route takes us mostly along the outside parts of the country, first along the north coast (Giant's Causeway area, over to and down the west coast, then the southern areas and finally up the east coast. So, we could do it in any part of the country. We are hoping to devote 1/2 a day (or less) to this activity. Time and quality are more important than budget. Whale Watch West Cork looks good to me, if you have used them, could you give me your feedback?

Also, a more general question pertaining to the whole of our trip. I have read that driving in Ireland is slow-going. If I use maps.google.com, will it give me pretty accurate drive times? If you have any experience comparing Google Maps drive times to actual drive times, how much time should I add to the times that Google gives me? 10%? 25%? 100%? more?

Thanks
