Ireland and Scotland in seven nights...

Jump to last reply

Hello! My boyfriend and I land in Dublin Friday August 30 at 3pm and need to take the train from Edinburgh to London on Saturday September 7 in order to catch our flight back to LA. We are trying to decide between flying from Dublin to Edinburgh either Monday or Tuesday. So three nights in Ireland or four?

We want to spend Friday night in Dublin, drive to the Cliffs of Moher, visit Blarney Castle, and see the Ring of Kerry. I was told to allow myself an afternoon to really sit back with a picnic and enjoy the Cliffs of Moher, and to try and stay in Blarney the night before the visit so we can be the first ones in the castle in the morning. In Scotland, we'd like a night or two in Edinburgh, see the Highlands, Isle of Skye, Eilean Donan Castle, Glencoe, and gosh I don't know.

So....fly Monday for an extra night in Scotland?
