We are heading off on August 22 to Ireland for 9 days. We will land in Shannon and are planning a driving trip with no particular itinarary. What we want to see is ancient sites like monoliths and standing stones. Maybe a graveyard or two. We plan to drive until we are tired and stay at bed and breakfasts. We will fly out of Shannon. Now for the questions.
Can we just pull up to a B and B and rent a room? Or do we need to make reservations? Do they ever have two beds in a room?
My bucket list item is to sleep in a castle. Authentic. Stone walls etc. not a manor house a castle and I really do not want to spend a thousand dollars for a night as that is crazy! I dont mind a few hundred but not a lot more.
I would love to know of any must see ancient sites in that area. Or the general area as we don't mind driving. My best friend and I dont mind getting dirty. In fact we are kind of looking forward to crawling around, over and under things.
Also any tips for two first time international women travelers?
