Ireland Drive in Feb.Hello! I am traveling with my boyfriend on a quick trip to Ireland in Feb. and am trying to see as much as possible without exhausting myself. We are in town for 3 days flying into Dublin.
The plan so far is to stay in Dublin for the 1st night and then head to County Wicklow either via the train to Bray and then rent a car or a bus to Glendalough or Enniskerry and then get a rental car there. I am assuming there are car rental places at each location so please correct me if I am wrong.
Next we plan to drive from County Wicklow to Kilkenny, I am curious to know if this is wise due to winding roads and/or weather so please opinions are welcome.
On the way back to Dublin from there we will drop the rental from the same location we got it from and head back. Overall we are looking to get a taste of country and city but in the smaller areas if would be nice to be some what close to town or at least a pub to have a pint with out the worry of driving. Please share any advice, suggestions or concerns and thanks for your time!

2I'd say it would be way easier, cheaper and all around more enjoyable to just rent a car from Dublin, a 3 day rent will be about 100 euros and about the same in gas. buses and train are not really cheap in ireland. just add on the GPS and you should be grand. i visited most of Ireland that way. Take about 30-1h to really get used to driving on the other side of the road and of the car the first time. Can you or your boyfriend drive stick shift? hard and more expensive to find automatics to rent.
