Subject: Easter in Ireland
Hello folks,

I've just been to the travel agent to book our flight to Ireland. We were planning to leave home on Apr.21 and fly into Shannon. It is going to make the difference of $150 per person to leave home no later than Apr. 17. Unfortunately, this is Easter weekend. Can anyone who has been there at Easter tell me if a lot of places are closed, and if tourist places are exceptionally busy with local people travelling around?

I'd rather spend the extra $300 over there than on the ticket, but I don't want to get there and find everything closed.

Regards, Nancy Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada
