3 Week Trip to Ireland, England, and Scotland- Advice Please!

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip this upcoming summer (2012). It's going to be my friend and I; we're both 20 year old girls from New York and will be traveling from May 30- June 21 in Ireland, England, and Scotland. I have a basic itinerary planned but will be the first to admit i have NO idea what i'm doing. I'd love advice on where to go, where to stay, what to do- everything really.

ABOUT US:
-we love drinking and having fun
-we're on a limited budget, as most college students are
-we love adventure (hiking, swimming, biking, etc.)
-we don't like tourist attractions
-we're up for doing the educational stuff to a degree, but for this trip we're not so educationally inclined
-we love cities as well as hidden gems
-we want to meet tons of fun people, but are afraid of taking a tour purely because we don't want to go from museum to museum, plus we're also very independent

thanks ahead of time!
I have us flying into Dublin, doing a loop of the south, taking a ferry to holyhead, working our way to london, then up to york and a few other places and eventually to edinburgh. From there we're headed back down to london to fly out of. This sounds a bit silly to me, but it seemed to be the cheapest option- i'm open to alternative routes!
