I agree Linda, the roundabouts are ridiculously common over here..not to
mention 'mini' roundabouts which you will find on side roads at the end of
many streets!
Rule of thumb is always give way to traffic approaching from the right on
any roundabout and don't worry if there's honking of horns behind you from
impatient people. Take your time, gather your thoughts and off you
the next one!! lol.. Better to be 10 minutes late in this life than 30years
too early in the next!

Hope you have a great time and as I said in a previous email if you require
any help or information don't hesitate to contact me.

All the best

Regarding money, I just kept two 'piles', one in each currency. You don't
need a lot of cash. Plastic works and unless you are in a rural area, there
are ATMs.

The advice about roundabouts was very good. I had forgotten about these. We
have them in New England, but not in Pennsylvania, where I was raised.
Neither I nor my husband knew what they were till one day we were barrelling
up Route 2, exploring New England, when we saw the sign. "What's that?" he
asked. "I don't know," said I. Round and round we went and ended up heading
back up the way we came.

They are more confusing in Ireland since you are on the wrong side and going
the wrong way.

Why are we trying to make cellphoning while driving illegal and not
