Guest Houses are a good way to go. The Irish Tourist Board has offices in most towns and are very helpful. They will make the phone calls to get you a place in your next town, which gives you great flexibility. If you go the B+B route, always ask to see the room and bathroom before you accept and bring you suitcase in. If it is not up to the usual Irish standards set by the Tourist Board, or your standards, walk. It means breakfast won't be worth eating either. The best seaside resort in Ireland is Ennsicrone, Sligo, my home town and a fabulous place for golf, right over the ocean.

It's the HSE here not the NHS, if your income is under a certain level then you can receive free health care/medical card, however this only applies to certain people and they have become ridiculously strict. As far as i'm aware students are not eligible for example. Medical care in this country can be expensive as well.
Depending on what part of july... Galway is magical at that time. There are 3 major festivals,
The Film Fleadh http://www.galwayfilmfleadh.com/
The Galway Arts Festival (my favourite, the city is just buzzing at this time)
You get loads of various cultural events, street performers, plays, parades, music, buskers. etc The formal events aren't even the big attraction, its the bit of eccentric madness that
This is the famous Macnas parade from the festival from last year.
Then you have the Galway Races, even if you aren't into Horses, the town is wedged and just one big party. The population of the city at least doubles maybe even triples for the week.
People in their thousands milling around the streets and pubs, and full of atmosphere. (although if you are going at this point, make sure to prearrange accomadation as its very hard to get with the crowds.
Plus galway is a good spot in order to see connemara, the burren, the cliffs of moher etc.

Avoid the 6 counties of Down Derry Antrim Fermanagh Tyrone Armagh if your coming over between the 9-13th of July. I would hit the west coast, discover ireland.com the official tourism site has all the registered accommodation.

This site would be a good place to start... http://www.discoverireland.ie/
There is plenty of hotels, B&B's around the country so depends on where you want to go.
All the usual car hire companies have desks in Dublin airport, the choice is yours.
Not sure how this site would suit you but have a look anyway..http://www.paddywagontours.com/index.php
And another one for you.. http://www.goireland.com/ireland/self-ca...
Enjoy your stay.

The only reason that Ireland votes on this kind of thing is that someone to a case against the state (or maybe the EU) to force a referendum on all EU matters that change the Irish constitution. Therefore, these changes would have come into effect as soon as all governments ratified them had it not been for this stumbling block.
All governments agreed to the Lisbon treaty. There is a need to streamline decision making as there are now 27 states in the union. Extending qualified majority voting makes sense. If unanimity was needed for every decision, it would take forever for anything to be passed. Protection for small states still exists in this arrangement, as a proposal can be blocked if (I think it's) 4 countries, regardless of size, say no. By population, smaller countries are over-represented in decision making too.
The main reason behind the Yes vote was fear of a worsening of economic conditions if there was another rejection. I think a major problem in both campaigns was that the majority of Irish people don't have a good knowledge of how the EU works on a day-to-day basis, let alone its powers over taxation, defense and social issues. When changes to these powers are made, there is much room for scare-mongering from both Yes and No camps. Also, the European Central Bank under Jean-Claude Trichet has more or less bankrolled the Irish government in this crisis. Even in the efforts to clean up the financial system, the banks will cash the government debt they receive for their loans at the ECB.
What must be remembered is that 25 countries and the parliaments of the two other countries have ratified this treaty, which was negotiated by the 27 countries. The only person realistically standing in the way is the Czech president. The treaty does give the EU more power, but not in the USA-type scenario made by the No side. Why would it be that all of these governments have signed off on the treaty, if it made their role obsolete.
I do not want to see a USA style structure to the EU. This treaty has both good and bad elements, but at the present moment, it is the best/only way forward for Ireland. That's why I voted yes.
