Ireland recommendations

I'm looking for places in Ireland to visit with a varied coastline (preferably Atlantic coastline), small lanes, green (with trees, not too bleak), interesting towns and not too touristy. I don't want golf courses or holiday developments!

We plan to go in April next year, travelling around a bit but it would be good to stay somewhere for a while to explore.

We love the Llyn Peninsular, so if anyone knows of anywhere in Ireland that has that sort of feel it would be good start.

Don't remember a lot of trees out on the Liyn spur and everyone else will send you to the South West which is fine. I love Beara but to give you the mountains in the background and the same sort of feel as Cardigan bay I will put forward the Connamara west of Galway and up to Westport then Achill Island.

Honestly anywhere on the West Coast would be equally as good but if you are planning on touring just be aware you might be travelling the same bit of road for miles every day if you are out on a spur.

I agree, anywhere on the west coast is great. There is wind, so right ON the coast there are usually few trees. However, there are plenty inland.

Ring of Beara is spectacular, as is Inishowen up in Donegal, Achill Island, the Donegal west coast, Dingle and of course, Ring of Kerry. The last is the touristy one.

In April, other than Easter weekend, just about anywhere in Ireland is not very touristy.
