My wife and I are planning a 3 week coastal tour of Ireland and Northern Ireland in May. After spending 2 nights in Dublin, I am thinking of picking up the rental car at the airport and heading to Drogheda for an overnight stay and as a base for seeing Newgrange and Monasterboice. Ideally, was thinking of incorporating these sights with a loop road to Trim and return to Drogheda through Tara. Is there a better location for an overnight stay in this area? Is this to ambitious of an itinerary?
Following a one night stay in Drogheda, we would then drive up to Belfast. Our objective is a counterclockwise tour of the island using the Lonely Planet and Rick Steves guidebooks.
