day trips from Dublin

I will be in Dublin at the beginning of June for three days and would like suggestions for day trips outside the city. We were thinking of renting a car, so a nice countryside drive would be perfect.

Head for the Wicklow Mountains, in particular the Vale of Avoca.

Also, on your way, stop at Powerscourt.

Amy,
Any of the following are doable in day trips with or without a car

Kilkenny City and Castle and its wonderful shops - a 2 hr train ride (see www.cie.ie and the Irish Rail link)

Wicklow Mts and Glendalough - escorted bus trip with Bus Eireann or doable on your own in a car - watch out for the sheep and the mists on nthe mountains

Newgrange and its ancient passage graves and the Castle at Trim and the Hill of Tara etc - see the Bus Eireann web site via www.cie.ie for details of tours etc and regular bus services. Also doable by car.

One piece of advise re car hire in Dublin - the city is a nightmare to drive in and especially at rush hour (7.00-10.00) and rush hour extends.

Hope this helps you make up your mind, see www.ireland.travel.ie for links to the regional web sites for the above areas
