Initial thoughts about September trip - any suggestions?

Jump to last reply

Original plan was to go to Paris for a week, but I figured that as long as I was flying all that way, why not spend two weeks and also visit someplace new. So, to make a long story short, we're flying in to Dublin on a Thursday morning and flying out of Dublin 16 days later. (It was a LOT less expensive than flying open jaw, even after adding in the cost of flying to and from Paris.) We'll be in Paris for one week during the later part of the trip and flying back to Dublin either the Thursday or Friday before we fly back home.

Since we'll be returning to Dublin at the end of the trip, I was thinking of not spending any time in Dublin at the beginning but directly either driving or taking a train elsewhere. Tending towards staying in southeastern Ireland - Kilkenny sounds nice and considering Dunmore East and Wicklow, and definitely seeing the Rock of Cashel.

I'm thinking of adding another location in between Ireland and and Paris. I have friends who spend part of the year in England and may visit them - but he's having surgery so there's a good chance that won't be happening. London sounds much too large to visit for just a couple days. Edinburgh sounds very nice, but I'm not sure about having enough time. What do you think? A little more time in Ireland or a couple days or so in Edinburgh?

Thanks in advance.
