Ireland: City or Country?

Jump to last reply

We've rented a house for a week in Galway for a family reunion this Sept. This will be our first time in Ireland. Husband & I will spend another 5 or 6 nights afterwards and are conflicted about where to go. Have a chance to spend 6 nights in a villa near village of Adare, 10 miles from Limerick. We could do a trip to Waterford from there, or a (long) day-trip to Dublin. Or we could spend all of the the time in Dublin instead.

Since we have never been there and I am reading about narrow roads and slow driving, it's hard for me to know how much territory we will have covered in a few days traveling out from Galway. Is it likely that we could arrive in Adare having already seen "the right stuff" of southern Ireland? Or are the chances good there will still be things we can see by ourselves?

Although I've been reading about people "doing" Dublin in 2 or 3 days, I assume we could be quite happy wandering round and seeing different sights for longer. Or not?

Thanks for any/all help.
