    Hi Kiersten,

    Thanks for the tips. What are your lodging thoughts? We like to meet local people so we are interested in guest houses or b and bs. We would like smaller places and don’t want anything fancy – just a normal irish breakfast. If travelling in May would we need to do everything in advance or would we be able to find places as we go? I have looked online but it is hard to distinguish touristy from authentic. I appreciate any help you can give. We are not extremely experienced in international travel but we are flexible and are not picky guests.

      Hi Nancy! I would say look into B&Bs as well as Airbnbs. I haven’t stayed at many bed & breakfasts in the area, so I can’t speak on whether you need to book in advance or not. However, in my experience, it’s always helpful to have a reservation, if possible. You may want to inquire in the TBA Travel Tribe on Facebook and see if the ladies there have any insight!


Meet @reserveps — the best kept secret at LAX! ✈️
PS is located in a private terminal at LAX with luxury suites with white glove service before and after your flight.

Concierge will check your bags with the airline and bring you caviar and champagne to enjoy while you wait.

I recommend arriving 3 hours before your flight so you have time to enjoy everything included in your booking—like chef-prepared meals, craft-cocktails, and spa treatments.

Before you head to your flight, you can fill a to-go box from the snack bar.

You’ll be escorted through their private security screening and chauffeured directly to your aircraft!

Now for the details…

Think of this like a Soho House membership for frequent flyers.

To have a private, line-free TSA screening, dedicated customs and immigration services on arrival, and expert drivers trained on the airfield to take guests directly to their aircrafts at one of the world’s busiest airports is a luxury you literally cannot buy anywhere else!

You can sign up for an annual membership for discounted rates on their private suites or salon (perfect for solo travelers). Or you can book on a per-use basis.
