Planning Ireland Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hey everybody! This forum I'm starting is a branch off of another one that I have, regarding a European vacation. I will be in London until July 27,2016, and would then like to travel to Ireland. I would be leaving Irealnd on August 5th. Everything is flexible and open to suggestions, as nothing in Ireland is booked. I have absolutely no idea where to begin, as I have never been outside of the US. What is the best way to get from London to Ireland? I am also looking for suggestions on how to go about seeing Ireland. Do I get a rental car, do I join an escorted tour? As I don't know what is worth seeing and what is not, I am relying on my fellow travelers to help me out to put together an itinerary. I am open to any and all suggestions, and will start to build an itinerary for this part of the tour based on everybody's input. Thank you!

    You need to tag this Ireland. I only found it via your link.

    I never recommend a guided tour to anyone capable of getting around by themselves.

    The Itinerary I gave before would work flying into Cork as a start point:

    Standard 7 day itinerary for Ireland given a flight into Cork.

    Land Cork Night 1 Cork, Blarney is a bus ride out from the city no need to pay for a tour.

    Day 2, Bus to Killarney see Killarney local options, National Park, Muckross house/gardens Gap of Dunloe Jaunting cart ride Cathedral lots of options

    Day 3, Ring of Kerry or Dingle tour.

    Day 4, early bus to Galway, see Galway

    Day 5, Tour from Galway, Cliffs of Moher and Burren, or Connemara with either Kylemore Abbey or Cong, or Inis Mor Aran Isle tour.

    Day 6, early express bus to Dublin, hop on/off Bus tour

    Day 7, More Dublin or a tour, either Newgrange and Boyne to the North or Glendalough and Wicklow mountains to the South

    Day 8 Departure.

    By car you can add points more remote than bus tours or take a more logistical route.

    In the mean time have a look through some decent guide books you should find some in the local library, check out a few Tour operator tours, but remember these are achieved by long days with professional drivers. avoid the Rick Steves guides you have your own mind you don't need to be dictated to.
