Hi I am getting very excited as I will be visiting Ireland in June 2013. I have only been to Ireland once for a week in 2000. I will be travelling with my parents and the reason for the trip is to attend a family gathering.
Our travel plans are to fly into London on 25 May to catch up with some relatives then fly into Dublin on 1 June we will probably be spending 2-3 days in Dublin we will be hiring a car and we then have until 9 June to get to Sneem for the gathering. I am thinking we head from Dublin to Newgrange then onto the Giants Causeway, is this to much for one day? I would then like to work our way down the West Coast to Sneem.
We will be in Sneem at least until 16 June when the gathering ends we will then head back up to Dublin, we will depart from Dublin to return home on 23 June.
Are we better off planning all our over night stops and booking before we go or will there be enough accommodation around at that time of year for us to find something when we need it?
Also we will need a hire car for about 22 days so am looking for the best hire companies. I will be looking at organising the hiring of the car myself as well as getting a local travel agent to quote.
