London & Dublin Honeymoon Advice & Help

Jump to last reply

Hello all. First time poster but I figured it was time to get some help planning for my honeymoon.

My fiance and I are tying the knot in April of 2013. We are thinking of doing our honeymoon in London and then Dublin in early May 2013.

We have a solid 7 days in Europe with 2 days of travel. So 9 days total.

We would fly into London from the east coast of the US and arrive Saturday morning in London. We would spend about 3 days London, maybe a flex day or travel day by rail from London to Dublin and then finish up our trip in Dublin for 3 days fly out of Dublin late morning/early afternoon on the 9th day.

Major Questions:

Ratio of stay?

How long should we stay in Dublin vs London? Right now I have it split evenly (3 days each) with a day to travel between cities. Does that sound right?

Also would it be worth it to spend a day or two Euro Staring it to Paris for a day trip to Pairs? or tour busing it to Stonehenge/Bath for a day?

Where to stay?

We were thinking of getting an apartment through onefinestay.com for our stay in London and booking a hotel/bed and breakfast for Dublin. Any lodging recommendations for newlyweds?

How much to budget for food?

We want to have at least one romantic night out at a nice romantic restaurant in each of the cities and wouldn't mind casual/pub dining the rest of the trip.

Any advice would be helpful really. What would your budget for food for about 7 days be like? Any hotel recommendations for newlyweds in either London or Dublin?

Getting around?

London seems easy enough with the underground and the buses however I am unfamiliar with Dublin. What would be a good budget for getting around the two cities?

Also I have the trip to Dublin from London costing about $60 /person or about $38 Sterling pounds if my research is right.

What to do?

I am really not that concerned with this because my fiance and I are pretty easy going when it comes to the sight seeing but we are worried about not planning properly budget wise. Anything we need to reserve/get on waiting list to see?
What are good things to do for newly weds in both London and Dublin who are trying to make the most of their time?

Like I said earlier I was playing with the idea of maybe a day trip to Paris or Stonehenge while in London or maybe a day trip to someplace while in Dublin.

Extra Info
This is our first time traveling abroad. We are both in our mid to late twenties and have I mentioned we will be newly weds? :)

So what say you? Am I trying to do to much in 7 days? Any advice? What would be your recommended budget be for a middle class couple? I will try to fill in any blanks I left as far as info you may need to give me a better idea.
