First Trip to Ireland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Ireland this year. Our tentative dates are June 25th through July 3rd and we have no idea where to get started for planning our itinerary. We have not purchased our tickets or made reservations anywhere yet, but we are planning to fly in to Dublin. We have a few tourist attractions we would like to visit, but also want to see the local, "off the beaten path" locations as well. We would prefer to stay in B&B's for the entire trip, but are open to any suggestions. We have never traveled out of the country, so any advice on this area would be much appreciated.

So I guess my questions are:
Should we stay in and around Dublin or dare to venture out?
What main tourist attractions would you recommend we visit? Which ones should we avoid?
What local places would you recommend we visit?
Which B&B's should we stay in?
Should we rent a car? (Neither of us can drive a manual transmission vehicle)
If we don't rent a car, what would you recommend for transportation?
What advice would you give for traveling out of the country for the first time?

I know this is a lot, but any advice would be awesome! Thank you in advance!!
