Hello everyone,

I'm surprising my wife with a trip to Ireland in the middle of May, 2017. I've designed a trip to suit our interests, but I was wondering if I'm cramming too many things into 8 days. When I look at guide books, they suggest taking a week for what I have planned in two days. Here's my plan, and I appreciate any and all advice from those who have been to, or live in Ireland.

Day 1 - Dublin
Arrive in Dublin, tour the city (probably hop-on hop-off to maximize time)

Day 2 -…

We'll be in Ireland in November. Our next to the last night will be at the Cliff House Hotel near Waterford. We have a 10:00 am flight out of Dublin. I'm hoping to get a few recommendations:

What should we plan to see on that last day as we drive between Waterford and Dublin? Waterford? Kilkenny? Something Wicklow Mountains National Park?

Where should we stay for our last night? We plan to drop off the car at the airport that evening. Should we head back to Dublin for one night? We will…

Hi,

My wife and our 2y/o will be going to Ireland this coming October and need some help determining the specific towns we should stay in.

So far we fly in and out of Dublin and we make plans to stay in a castle at Wexford for the last 3 nights of our trip. Working counterclockwise I was hoping to be in a position to stay at 2 or 3 more places max.

I'm still on the fence if Dublin is worth a night or if we should just drive straight west towards Galway region.
We'd love to be in driving…

Hello! I have one night left to book on my 9 days in Ireland and I'm struggling a bit. We will be relying on public transportation, spending two nights in Dublin, then two nights in Galway with a night to spend along route and then two nights in Dingle then back to Dublin. Going straight from Galway to Dingle seems a bit much, so we would like to spend one night South of Galway a bit to give us a "head start" on the travel and stopover in one more city. Any suggestions of where to stopover for a…

I'm curious to know about Dublin on St. Patrick's Day. I had heard a while ago that it's absolutely not a big deal thing to those living in Dublin. I'm assuming though it might be a big deal thing for American tourists.
I'm not interested in flying across the USA and the Atlantic to get sloshed in Dublin on St. Patrick's Day, but thought it'd be interesting to go there especially if nothing special happens.

Thoughts?

Three of us will be making our way from Westport to Dublin via Clare and Kerry, and we'd like to stay two nights somewhere after Dingle. We were thinking Kinsale in Cork, but some of what I read makes it sound a bit more upscale than we'd like. Or, is there an area near Kinsale that isn't all about the restaurants and wine? We like good food and drink, but we prefer a more casual, foot-tapping ambiance. We'd be glad to hear ideas and opinions. It doesn't have to be in Cork. Lodging ideas will be…

Silly post.
Go on, have a good laugh. As a Southern Californian I feel most comfortable in shorts and t-shirts. I will be in Ireland 5-19 Sep with a rental car. I hear September is a very wet month. I'm told I should concentrate on the West Coast but could end up elsewhere. I'll have rain gear, an umbrella, a couple of sweaters and a light down jacket. OK I know there aren't any palm trees in Ireland. But could at any time I regret not having brought a pair of shorts? For hiking, an unexpected…

I am visiting Ireland for the first time in a month. Spending the first two nights and last night in Dublin (flying in & out here), the second two nights (Monday through Wednesday) in Galway, but can't decide where to go for the remaining 3 nights/4 days. Some have advised to continue South and stop along some towns to Killarney, others have mentioned to go back Northeast towards Belfast and the Antrim Coast. Really open for anything as long as a mix of trains and buses can get us there. Any…
