Short trip to Ireland

Jump to last reply

Hello.

I'm in the early stages of planning a possible trip to Ireland around Easter. However I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by choices and am unsure how to proceed. I'm a woman in her mid-twenties who will probably be traveling alone. I'm interested in natural beauty and historical sights. I'll be flying into Dublin but I'm not particularly interested in Dublin. I don't drink and am not interested in pubs or nightlife and am really keen on visiting Ireland to see the natural beauty like the Cliffs of Moher or Giants' Causeway. I can't drive so at first, I was looking at spending 3 days in Dublin, then using one of those days for a guided tour to the Cliffs of Moher, hitting a few other highlights on the way or possibly doing a guided tour where you spend the night in Galway and visit the Cliffs of Moher and other parts of the North in 2 days.

However on another site, I heard that it's better to go to Galway or Cork and when asking people I know in real life who have been to Ireland, they recommended Howth, the Aran Islands and Wicklow National Park to me. However I can only allocate at most 6 days in Ireland because I'm also hoping to visit Amsterdam for 4 days and part of the reason, I considered going to Dublin is because I can get a cheap flight to Amsterdam from there which is a lot harder to come by from Madrid.

I'm just wondering, weather-wise, does it make sense trying to visit the national park in March? Should I take the time to visit Howth? Should I base myself in Galway instead of Dublin? I'd have to return to Dublin anyway for the flight to Amsterdam though. Will I be able to see the natural beauty of Ireland in March or should I wait until summer? I'm on a student's budget and have been told that Ireland is expensive. How expensive is it? I know a lot of the people on here are older and have bigger budgets but I'd prefer to not spend more than 200 euros, not counting accommodation, while there.

Should I try to do Ireland and Amsterdam at the same time? I'm already cringing at possibly having to spend 150 euros in accommodation for Amsterdam, even staying at hostels. I've never been to Ireland before but have briefly been to Amsterdam (but I saw very little as I was only there for a few hours). Do you think I should focus on Ireland and leave Amsterdam to a long weekend instead? I know the weather won't be great there in March either. Initially I had intended to visit Amsterdam in May but the flight for that weekend has already gone up to 200 euros. When you add 150 euros in accommodation to that, it's already at the top end of my budget.
