Traveling with a small group in Ireland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our grown children and spouses to Ireland in August. He'd like to go to Newmarket on Fergus to see his father's family and Ballina in County Mayo to visit his mother's birthplace as well. We'd also like to see the usual sights: Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of Moher, castles etc. Here are a couple of questions:

Do we rent a large 9 passenger van to hold us and our luggage, or do we rent 2 cars for the 6 of us? My husband doesn't want a chauffeur or a bus tour. We drove in Ireland in the late 70's and know the roads are narrow.

Any suggestions for a self guided tour group that will book us rooms along the way? We'll need 3 bedrooms at each site. We are going the first week of August and plan to stay about 8 nights. I'd like the accommodations all set up before we leave the USA.

Should we fly into Shannon or Dublin?

Any suggestions would be welcome! Thank you!
