4 Days in July - Arrive Dublin Leave Shannon - tips?

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites,

Would so appreciate your help as this is our first trip to Ireland. We arrive Thursday morning into Dublin and fly out Monday morning out of Shannon. No interest in pubs so heard we could do Dublin the first day.

1) Is it best to get a car and drive the rest of the trip?

2) What suggestions would you have for an itinerary? Are B&B's the way to go outside of Dublin?

3) Would like to go to Glendalough - better to go by car or bus? If we had a car, could we go there and then head over to Kilkenny or is it too hard to get to?

2) Saw recommendations on the forum here to go to Galway. Same question on better to do the train or car to see sites around that area? Can we easily get ourselves down to Shannon if we didn't have a car for Sunday night?

Thank you!!
