First time to Ireland - please help!

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Ireland in the fall... Just came up suddenly and I'm getting excited but really have no clue where to start.

We will have 2 weeks in Ireland. We will fly into Dublin and probably spend 2 nights there. Would also like to fly home from Dublin as well.

Through my initial research it seems most people do B&B's with 1 day here, 2 days there, etc. Lots of moving around. That's not our style, we prefer to base ourselves somewhere and then do day trips to visit the surrounding areas. I'm wondering if this is a good idea for Ireland or not?

We would like 2 destinations to base ourselves after Dublin. Some of the places I'm considering are Kinsale (foodie) Dingle, Galway, Killarney or Kilkenny.

I think I'd like to book a cottage, apartment or private home. Somewhere within walking distance to pubs or restaurants would be great. We like to venture out during the day, do sightseeing, but come home to our place either to cook ourselves, or go out somewhere locally where it isn't a big deal to drive or walk home after some wine, or I guess in Ireland it would be pints! We'd love to explore the pub scene!

We like beautiful scenery on our day trips, maybe do some shopping, visit a castle, the cliffs, etc.

So, does anyone have any suggestions?

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you,

Patty
