Ireland for Elderly Couple, Advice Needed

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Ireland for his elderly parents. This is to be an eightieth birthday gift for his dad. The specifics: They can stay about 10 days. They don't want to drive, but hate group tours. They enjoy small, intimate bed and breakfasts or inns over generic hotels. They have some mobility issues - Parkinson's, polymyalgia, back surgery, etc., so can't walk too far. They enjoy the countryside and sea, history and castles, meeting people. Any preliminary suggestions?

Thanks, Guys!
