Stay in Dublin or fit in a daytrip?

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving in Dublin on Sunday, May 4th. Our flight leaves at night out of Boston and arrives at 8AM, so we are likely to be fairly jet lagged. We leave to go on to Bordeaux on Wednesday the 7th at 1PM. I have been to Dublin once before on business and thought my husband would enjoy the city, so we decided to take this route to France since we have a home near Bordeaux and don't have to fly into Paris this way. We are staying at the Conrad hotel at Saint Stephen's Green which I remember being a good location for walking and seeing the city.

My question is whether it is worth trying to see anything outside of Dublin in that time-maybe a guided day tour? If so, any suggestions would be welcome. Our friends are suggesting we rent a car and see more of Ireland, but since we live part time in Europe I feel like we will get back again if we want to do that and the car thing seems like kind of a hassle for such a short time, etc.

Would love thoughts from other folks who have spent time in Ireland
