8 Nights in Ireland with my two daughters (age 22 & 18)

Jump to last reply

A very warm hello. Will be travelling in August 2013. My original thought was arrive in Shannon, depart from Dublin (or visa versa), rent a car and visit: Dublin, Cork, Killarney and Galway. Then I saw the distances and realized I would be driving 3 - 4 hours daily : (. I then shopped around for escorted motor coaches which brought up the price as well as staying at hotels that I perhaps would have found a little further away from city centers, which I am quite sure my daughters would enjoy. I wish so much that I had more than 8 days to visit this amazing country that all three of us want to visit so bad. One of my concerns driving on our own was nightly accommodations without advanced reservations.
I guess my biggest question is: Do I bite the bullet and drive, or would a motorcoach tour be better even though a little more restrictive as to where we would stop, but would allow me to relax and not get lost : )....I know I can stay in Ireland a lifetime to visit all of its beauty, but am I biting too much wanting to see the above? Thanks for your guidance and advice.
