Scotland & Ireland - do I HAVE to pick 1 for 7-day trip?

Jump to last reply

I will be in Edinburgh Sept. 21 (Saturday) for a wedding, flying back to NYC the next day. I arrive the morning of Sept. 14 (Saturday). Now this gives us 7 days to check out the area, and I know everyone is going to suggest spending the whole time in Scotland!

BUT... the flight from NYC>Edinburgh and back is MORE expensive and more of a pain than a flight from NYC>Dublin>Edinburgh>NYC. I've also never been to Ireland and would love to see it as well! So my question is what would you suggest we do if we want to do Ireland AND Scotland during this trip?

I understand we won't be able to do everything, but it'd be nice to get a taste of both areas so we can decide if we want a more in-depth visit to one or the other during a future trip. We love to eat, drink, and be merry wherever we go, but with probably more an emphasis on beautiful sights and scenery in that area. Maybe a museum or two, a hike or two, and any "must do"s in the region.

Thanks for your thoughts! Any suggestions appreciated.
