I am in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Ireland in July with my husband, son who will be one, my mother and brother. We will be flying most likely into Dublin because I'd like a non-stop flight from Boston. I plan on renting a car. I will probably only spend one night in Dublin then we plan to make our way over to the west coast. Here is where I need help/advice.... our trip is only one week long. I would like to rent a house or cottage and do day trips from there. My original thought is Galway so that we can be near the coast for my husband to surf. I am of the mentality of less is more especially when traveling with a baby. Are there any must see day trip/excursions from Galway? Or would you recommend a different town or city in place of Galway? Thank you for your help!
