I'll have to disappoint you regarding Dungeon quests. 90% of them do not give any Loremaster increases, frustratingly. The few that do are the chain quests and tier gear quests iirc.
Totally agree regarding Kalimdor. It is a real pain. And the area where you will get the most frustrated.
Some, if not all, of the festival quests do count towards Loremaster. So these are worth checking out when they come around.
Outland is not bad at all especially with flying. The only one that can prove a little troublesome is Blades Edge. You will probably find you need to tackle some elites to finish this zone.
Definitely get the addons Akee has linked. I did most of the old world before I found Everyquest. What a difference that addon made. But, be prepared to do a lot of reading. There are numerous quests you will not be able to do that the addon shows as available due to your race/profession/other quets you have done.
Do not make getting Loremaster your main objective. Do it while waiting for randoms/raids/other things. If you have not done a lot of the quests, they can be either fun/stupid/dreary. The one benefit of doing the old world when at 80 is the speed you can get through the quests.
All in all, just have fun. Once Cata comes out, the old world will never be the same. So enjoy your travels here while it's still in one piece.
