My husband and I are coming to Ireland in March 2013. I am trying to figure out a rough budget for our trip. I have an itenerary that I have been working on for awhile now. I have a good idea of how much I will spend on the flight, hotels, and rental car but I need some help factoring in the cost of food, petrol, parking/tolls and anything else that I may not be thinking of.
AAroadwatch has been an incredible help. It says I will be traveling 700.88 km and factoring in 25 MPG and 162 cents per litre, it estimates that I will spend around 135 euros in fuel. Does this sound accurate?
I just read something about there being alot of toll roads in Ireland, how much are they typically? Is there a website that I can enter my route and it give me that info?
I also read (i spend alot of time looking at Ireland forums/websites) that I should factor around 30 euros a day for food. We will probably do mostly pup food and little ma and pa diners/cafes. Nothing fancy. Does that cost sound accurate also?
Sorry fo so many questions!
We will be in Ireland for 9 days beginning at the Dublin airport, making the southern loop (roughly Cork, Killarney, Dingle, Doolin) and ending at the Shannon airport.
