First time to Ireland - traveling w 2 teens

Jump to last reply

Our family of 4 goes "somewhere" in Europe every summer. This summer, we'll spend a week in Ireland (after a week in Holland ... Don't ask!). We are open to all recommendations as we have no itinerary at all at this point. We are flying in and out of Dublin. Already have plane tix, so now way to change to an open jaw option.

Usually we base ourselves somewhere for at least a week and travel around that area, but someome suggested driving cross country to Galway, which they find to be the prettiest part of the country, making some stops along the way. Sounds like a lot for one week, but she says it's manageable.

We enjoy exploring beautiful towns, trying the food and drink, shopping for unique items/crafts, the very occasional museum. We also like the beach and staying in seaside resorts/coastal areas. Our girls are 13 and 17.

I know this is a wide open question, but where would you recommend we visit on our first trip to Ireland? Thanks!
