My husband and I are backpacking through Ireland for our 1-year anniversary. We will be there April 9th-20th flying in and out of Dublin. This is a trip we have both wanted to take for ages and really see it as more of an adventure than a luxury vacation, we want to see beautiful countryside, drink lots of beer, hear great music, and we love old architecture and ruins. I would love some advice about some cool places to visit that are a little off the beaten path. I would also like some opinions about our lodging ideas. We have reservations for our first night in dublin and the night before we leave but that's it, we kinda wanted to wing it because we for know which places will grab us and which will we will want to just pass through. Is this too risky?
