Train vs. Car - Dublin to Dingle & more...

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to be taking a (much too) short trip to Europe in late April - 5 days in Ireland, 6 days in Italy. (I will be posting questions about Italy travel too.) Having never been to Europe, we are completely without experience, but willing to explore. I would like to do as much reservation making and planning via internet as possible.

We fly into Dublin, late-morning on April 20th. We have heard the suggestions to see Dublin at the end of our visit, instead of the beginning, as we will be flying out of Dublin on the 25th.

One question regards train vs. car travel to Dingle. Should we plan to take the train from Dublin to Dingle, rent a car and slowly make our way back to Dublin? Are there car rental companies which allow pick-up in one city and drop-off in another?

The next question is regarding the timing and stops on the way back. We are not terribly interested in Waterford or Blarney - but more interested in seeing the "true" Ireland, it's countryside and meeting new friends. Friends have told us Killarney is another must-see.

We are also completely open to any great B&B suggestions along the drive back.

Any help that you can give us will be greatly appreciated! And - if you have any of the same knowledge of Ireland that you do of Italy.... please see my post there!

Hopefully this will begin our new "world traveler" status! Thank you !
