Ireland or England? 10 days in Aug

Jump to last reply

I'm in the planning stages and want advice on what to see this trip. We did France in 10 days last year (just the Loire and Paris) and I learned the hard way to underplan! We did maybe 3/4 of what I planned to do! Anyway we have a tight budget of $3500, 10-12 days in Aug and a babysitter! We made the same budget work in France, I'm hoping we can do it again.

I found cheapest airfare to Dublin- should we stay the whole time in Ireland and if so can anyone suggest a great itinerary? We love countryside, castles, quaint towns, and archelogy- pubs and late nights and big cities not so much. (For example we loved Chinon, Paris scared the crap out of me!)

Or should we take the cheap ferry/train from Dublin to England do a day or 2 in London and see Bath and the lake district? I can't decide. Would a little of each be feasible? Which side of the channel would be more budget friendly? I'd love tips and advice! thanks!
