Ireland in June

Jump to last reply

I just booked tickets for my mother and I to take a trip to Ireland this summer and I have a few questions.

Neither one of us feels comfortable driving so we will be relying solely on public transport. When we arrive in Dublin, we are going to take the train straight to Belfast (Why didn't we fly into Belfast? It was much cheaper to fly into Dublin).

Skeleton itinerary looks like this:

3 days Belfast
3 days Dublin
1 day/night Aran Islands (specifically, Inis More)
2 days Galway
Fly out of Shannon

***As stated this is a skeleton. If you think we should leave something out, let me know. At this point, I'm flexible.

Does this itinerary seem doable with train travel? Should we stay longer on the Aran Islands? Is Galway worth it or is there another place relatively close to Shannon (we fly out in the afternoon the day we leave, but I'd like to be close so that we do not have to worry about getting to the airport on time, etc.). Also, does anyone have suggestions for place to stay on the Aran Islands? I'm having difficulty finding anything from hotels.com and other online booking sites.

Any and all help will be extremely helpful!

Thank you in advance!
