Too Little Time in Ireland--Advice?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a short trip to Ireland in late October. I get to tag along on my husband's business trip, so 3 nights in Dublin are set: the initial 2 nights, then the last night before flying out. Because this is typically when the weather turns, we are thinking we should stick to another city for the remaining 3 nights, with Galway being the obvious choice. If we have good weather, we will explore the cliffs and whatever else we can fit in. Does that sound like the best choice? (unlikely to return unless there is another work trip, as we are Mediterranean lovers for our personal travels.)
Husband is open to driving after doing it the last three years in Italy, though the left side thing has me a bit nervous. If we pick up the car in Dublin, we could explore en route to Galway--for example driving up to Newgrange to see the neolithic site. Any advice on where to pick up the car? Best area of Galway to stay with a car? Any other suggestions? I am thinking it would be easier to just have the car versus taking the train and then figuring out day rentals.
Thanks in advance for input!
