Feedback on Ireland Itinerary!

Jump to last reply

My sister and I (ages 28 and 20) are in the early planning stages for a trip to Ireland and London in June of 2014. Neither of us have been to Ireland. Our big restriction is that we are really hoping to get by without renting a car in Ireland.

Here is our very rough plan for Ireland:

We'll base out of Dublin for four days, using one day to explore Dublin itself. The other days we are considering doing tours through Irish Day Tours to Blarney Castle, Cliffs of Moher, and either Dingle Peninsula or Ring of Kerry. We want to see a few of the highlights and then just see/experience the countryside.

We are also considering renting a cottage for 2 to 3 days near a town with public transportation. There seem to be some cottage rentals available that are near walking trails. My concern is, is this a plan that is "done" or will we be really missing out by not having a car?

I might consider renting an automatic car for the 3 days we'd be in the cottage, but I'm wondering if the driving in Ireland is comparable to England? I just found it to be so fast, the roads so narrow and then driving on the other side of the road was just too much of a learning curve for me.

Any feedback would be very much appreciated!
