Ireland/Scotland Itinerary for Family Vacation July/Aug 2014

Jump to last reply

Ive bean reading the boards and doing a lot of research and I still need help on planning.
We have about 16-17 days....will have it defined once air is booked, but I want to fly open jaw and I need to still sort that out. Using United miles.

Kids are boys 14 and 11..... Interests...history, culture, adventure, hiking, biking, wildlife, food and drink (mom and dad love beer and pubs and want to learn more about scotch/whiskey)
No interest in Golf

We will rent a car, even though we are concerned about the driving the the opposite side issues.

Thinking...
Flight from US to Dublin.
Ireland - 8 days
Dublin
Dingle
Burren
Cashel

fly Shannon to Edinburgh

Scotland - 8 days
Edinburgh
Tatoo (trip will over lap into beginning of August) - should we go?
Stirling
Then Im not sure -
Isle of Skye looks amazing - but its far....
Ive read there are places for learn about falconry, shear a sheep, see sheepdogs at work - I think the kids would like these types of things...

Fly back to US from Edinburgh

Thanks in advance!!!
