Best Areas of Ireland To Stay and Make Day Trips

Jump to last reply

My mother (80 y.o.) and I plan to visit Ireland next year would like your input and advice. We plan to rent a self-catering cottage for a week at a time and would like some recommendatons on what areas to look into that would offer the best day trips. My mom needs the benefit of rest and just cannot do the 2 days here and 3 days there kind of itinerary. We did that for weeks in France last year and it really took its toll on her. So, I thought this way she could have plenty of time to rest between outings.

We're thinking about 3 weeks so that would be three different areas of Ireland to stay in. I definitely want to stay a week in the Dingle Peninsula area, so any suggestions for the other two areas would be appreciated. Again we would like to stay where we can easily take day trips (we will have a rental car, but it will be a first for me - driving on the left).

Thanks so much for any advice. Alice
