Comparing scenic areas on Atlantic coast in Ireland

Jump to last reply

My wife and I want to see rural, not urban Ireland when we're there in July. We have no interest at all in city tours, pub crawls, etc. We are much more interested in getting out and about and walking around places like the Burren than in hop on-hop off bus tours of Dublin; no offense intended; that's just who we are.

I will NOT rent a car! I can't watch the scenery and watch the road at the same time.

I like the idea of making our way to Galway and taking some day tours around Connemara and the Burren.

If we do tour those areas, I'm curious whether also touring some place like the Dingle peninsula (which I strongly prefer over the Ring of Kerry) would just be too much of the same sort of scenery. True, it'd all be beautiful, but are there other rural scenic areas elsewhere that we should prefer, if we start with Connemara and Burren and then have 2-3 more days before we have to head onward?

Thanks.

Tom
