Five days to get from Kinvara to Dublin - what to see?

Jump to last reply

We have five days to get from Kinvara to Dublin, where we're meeting family who've flown in from the States. We're a family of four, including two boys, a 6-1/2-year-old and a 19-month-old, and we're living in Ireland until June 2014. We're pretty clued in to a lot of the historic sites from the guidebooks, especially in County Clare, but are looking for a special place, or places, to stay that really feels like a destination, such as an organic farm, historic building, place with character but not dumpy (we love good design), etc.—somewhere that is great for kids and for their parents. We can split our trip up anyway we choose, but were hoping to get some ideas from the fine travelers on this site. One thought was that we might ultimately make our way to County Wicklow and spend a couple of days there before heading up to Dublin. Oh, and we've looked into almost all of the castle hotels and they are prohibitively expensive in June.

Does anyone have a special place they'd like to recommend?
