My husband and I are driving/ferry from Scotland to Larne first Sunday in June. We will get into Ireland mid-afternoon and are heading for Dublin. With just a week we will only be able to get a flavour of the place so can only have a day or two in Dublin. We will want to head out Tuesday afternoon or very latest Wednesday morning. Which places are not to be missed? Also are there any pubs/eating places out of this world? We cannot afford to spend a fortune but could stretch to at least one really "nice" meal.
Where is best to head after Dublin? For sentimental reasons I would like to visit Cork. My sister who has since died was there a few years ago but I know we have very limited time as we will have to be nearing Coleraine by the Friday evening as we want to spend the last couple of days there seeing my aunt and uncle and going to Giants Causeway and possibly Derry and by the way is Derry worth a visit? We have to be back home by Monday afternoon so will have to leave Ireland latish Sunday afternoon/very early Monday morning so where is it best to spend the 2 or 3 days between Dublin and NI. When we originally planned this holiday we had much more time but for various reasons it has now got cut to just the week. Any replies appreciated.
