Itinerary Help - 8 Nights in Dublin / Scotland

Jump to last reply

My friend and I will be flying RT NYC to Dublin in March for a quick trip to Ireland and Scotland. It's our first time - and we know this is way too short to see everything, but we hope to get a feel for Dublin (and hopefully a few other Irish sights) and maybe one region of Scotland.

Any Ireland / Scotland travel experts want to drop some itinerary help on us? :)

Here's what we're thinking so far:

Mar 16 - take train to the cliffs of Howth
Mar 17 - explore Dublin, celebrate St. Patrick's Day
Mar 18 - Fly to Edinborough, rent car, drive up to Speyside region - stay there
Mar 19 - Tour villages / whisky distilleries - continue stay in Speyside
Mar 20 - Drive to another region of Scotland - highlands? galoway? - stay the night there
Mar 21 - continue exploring
Mar 22 - Drive back to Edinborough - explore the city
Mar 23 - Fly back to Dublin, tour the city / Glendalough?
Mar 24 - home

Questions:

1) Any suggestions for our 5 nights in Scotland? We'll have at least 1 night in Edinborough - and we're thinking 2 in Speyside? 2 somewhere else?

2) Would you take 2 nights in Scotland and trade them for 2 nights in Ireland? I know it's a quick trip- and we'll surely be back, but any ideas what's best for a super-quick trip like this?

Thanks soooo much. We're finding it difficult to plan such a quick trip, of course, and think we should probably just focus on 2-3 places. If you have any suggestions as to where those 2-3 places should be, we'd really appreciate it.
