7 nights in Ireland-In/Out Shannon-Itinerary advice for newbie travelers?

Jump to last reply

Hello everybody! First of all, let me say I am completely new to the Fodor website (I've used the books before, though) so I apologize if I break any etiquette I am not aware of! I browsed the forum and did not see a question quite like mine, so hopefully I am not repeating something that's already been asked.

My husband and I are going to Ireland at the end of the month (very spur of the moment), and we are clueless!! I would really appreciate any advice people can give us on how to break down our trip.

We get into Shannon Saturday (10/29) and leave from Shannon on Sunday morning (11/6). We are renting a car, so we'll have transportation.

The only thing we really know we want to see is Dublin. We are completely unfamiliar with the rest of Ireland. I realize now we should have booked our flight into Dublin (or booked out of Dublin) but, like I said, we are total noob travelers. Oh well, we'll know for next time!

Does anybody have any suggestions for us? I was thinking we could meander our way to Dublin (maybe get there around Tuesday?), hitting some sights on the way, then weave our way back on Thursday or Friday, hitting a few more sights. Does this seem doable?

Also, should I book B&B's before I get there, or is it ok to wing it and book B&B's the same day?

I'm sorry if this post is overly long! I'm just excited but also overwhelmed. Thanks so much for all your help!! It is very appreciated :)
