Ireland, England, Scotland 2013

Jump to last reply

Hello.. First post here so go easy please.

I am in need of advice and help with an itinerary and plan of how to pull this off.

I am one of five adults ( 30-45) who are looking to visit Ireland, England, and Scotland in August 2013. We are looking to go for 2 weeks. I understand August is a very busy time over there but one of the main things we want to see ( Military tattoo ) goes on on in August. Between the 5 of use we have all compiled a list of things we would like to see. This list I feel is too long and we need to figure out how to cut things out or squeeze them in. I have figured out travel times between these locations by rental car and some are going to be too far away.

We would be flying out of Chicago.

List of things to see in Ireland :
Guinness Storehouse
St. Patricks Cathedral
Waterford Crystal factory
Blarney castle
Ring of Kerry
Cliffs of Moher
Galway area
Giants Causeway

List for Scotland:
Edinburgh Military Tattoo (must see)
Stirling Castle
Arrochar area
Balmoral - Queens Distillery
Loch Ness
Isle of Skye

List for England:
St Pauls Cathedral, Windsor Castle, London Eye
Dover Cliffs
York Cathedral

Yes, quite the list... I assume there is no way to do it all in 2 weeks... Or is it possible??

What's the best way to travel between the 3 countries? Fly?

We would rent cars if necessary.

So I will start with this and any guidance would be helpful. Thanks!
