Hi - Husband has business trip in Dublin Aug 5-7. We are trying to plan addiltional travel to see as much as we can prior to being in Dublin. So we thought we would fly to Shannon July 28 or 29 then work our way south and west ending in Dublin on the 5th of August. We have to be back in states by Aug 9 which is why we are beginning in Shannon. We would be renting a vehicle. I realize we only have 5-6 days and I would like to hit a variety of highlights along the way. Kids are from 17 to 24 so basically all adults travelling. We like the outdoors and also like castles, history and food! Ending in Dublin and taking in the city at that point. Would prefer to overnight in bigger towns/cities that offer various accomodations and dining options.
We traveled in Scotland 2 summers ago with a hired tour guide and we moved around every 1-2 days. I am a little apprehensive about driving but the more I read the more I think we will be fine.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I certainly will use this forum as I narrow things down. Thanks
