Ireland by Public Transportation

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in our seventies and I am an anxious passenger in any car. Don't let the age fool you- we are very active with no handicaps but we just don't like the hassle of a car unless we have to. We have done some great trips using public transportation with limited use of a car. We did Scotland, Wales and the Uk. The only time we had a car was for one day in the Cotswalds. We did Greece including Crete, Santorinii,Naxos, Mykonos and Athens with only a car for three days in Crete. I am trying to decide whether to do Ireland on our own or do a tour. We don't usually do tours. The only two tours we ever went on were to China and India. We are adventurous - love to hike, enjoy nature, eat, spend time with the locals and museums and we travel light usually just a backpack. I was thinking of flying into Dublin and out of Shannon . My question is can a "car-less couple " see the key sights in about 20 days by choosing several main cities (accessible by public transportation) and do day trips from these cities?
