Your opinion is based on using one or looking at a catalog?

I think I would have hiked if the bus dropped me in Killarney ("only" 10km)

comment Why do Eurotunnel do cheaper fares for shorter trips
@monkjack start with this wikipedia article about pricing and follow the links. In short, companies have a Revenue Management department where people's job is to figure any way to "optimize" the price of your tickets in order to get the maximum revenue out of you. So if there is any single thing that went through your mind to explain the increase, I am certain someone tried it to see if it brought money.

comment Why do Eurotunnel do cheaper fares for shorter trips
@monkjack in his answer, jpatokal mentions "different markets", and while it is not detailed, it is not limited to business and non-business travellers, as the linked answer suggests. I suppose if you stay 5 days, you have a budget of say 5x100 euros, if you stay 1 day you have a budget of 1x100 euros (these amounts are examples). So the traveller for 5 days is more likely to accept to pay a higher price for his train ticket (say 20 extra euros in 500 is OK). There are probably other "markets" some people are paid to determine.

comment Which car should we rent to visit several European countries?
The only issue would be to fit 5 people in the car, so just don't take the smallest, all the rest is good.

comment Do I still need my Garmin Etrex Vista GPS or can I just use my iPhone with an App?
It is probably slower, but I have used my phone's GPS on multiple occasions in the wilderness or in cities in North America without real issues (I usually have a signal within 10 seconds). I have no mobile data at all, I just use WiFi (I don't know if it is really used for approximate position). And overall, the precision my phone pretends to have is 20-30m (with a reasonable battery usage)

comment Renting a car in the USA — how to know costs for the legal minimum liability insurance, before arriving for pickup?
I think he talks about liability insurance (when you are responsible for an accident), not the damage waiver (when you break/damage the car)
