Husband and I can't find a compromise in our itinerary

Jump to last reply

I have plans to travel to Ireland in April and am trying to decide the direction of how my itinerary is playing out with having to factor in the fact that I was planning on renting a car to travel. I have about 9 days/8 nights which isn't long. I originally thought of exploring the Southwest regions (Visiting the Cliffs/Burren, Galway, Kilkenny, and Glendalough) and ending in Dublin for the last 2 nights before flying home. Then my husband threw in the wrench of liking Northern Ireland because we live in the south and never get to explore the north, and the history is better up north than where we were looking at going in the Southwest (plus he'd rather do the Giant's instead of the Cliffs). I wanted to strangle him for his rationalization over this change, but I did pick the location for our vacation so compromise I'm trying to do. The only thing I know for sure regarding a B&B rental we have already secured is for the last 2 nights before we fly home out of Dublin. I was going to purchase my plane tickets next week and now I don't know where I should fly into seeing as my husband wants to go to Northern Ireland (Belfast, Bushmills, and Londonderry).

What is the easiest way to set this up with a good starting point for flying into?
It seems like the locations that my husband wants to explore can be done in 3-4 days, so what would you recommend doing with the rest of my time?
Given the locations my husband would like to visit, what areas would you recommend we stay in?
Is there a way that we can divide up our times so that I can see some of my list and he can see some of his?
