Need help with a trip to Ireland planing please

Jump to last reply

New to these forums, and I was hoping for some advice and recommendations for a friend and I who want to plan a trip there soon. We are thinking July or August, and 1-2 weeks to spend there, typical weather that time of year seems good?

Here are what are goals are:
*Not stay in one spot. We want to travel around to see interesting landmarks, natural scenery, coastal
scenery and towns that are worth the effort.
*Definitely visit Dublin for however long is recommended. Galway was also recommended.
*See and possible stay in a few Castles.
*No preference to travel method per say. Switching up between a rental car, train, biking, and hiking a bit
would all be nice.

I really appreciate any advice people can give with the above in mind. We don't want a strict schedule, just want to relax and see cool things at our own pace and try to hit the list.

We are both flying out from the US, any other advice for cheaper tickets or travel tips would also be appreciated. Anything other than a basic passport required?

Thanks!
