Starting to make a plan - input welcome :-)

Hoping to travel to Ireland (from Oz) in August 2014. Mostly travelling alone, 54yr old female.

So far I think I'll stop overnight on the way (maybe Dubai, maybe Bangkok) to ease the jetlag. Spend maybe 3 nights in Dublin - Shelbourne Hotel. HOHO bus and lots of walking - National Gallery, Museum, etc.

At that point I expect to be joined by adult daughter and son in law, hire a car and drive to Omagh - stopping a night on the way? Newry?

Haven't planned further than that but will drive on to Galway and Cork before back to Dublin. Can stay 3 weeks and stay a few nights in each location (or nearby) to explore. Self catered accommodation at least one location, B&B's the others..

I know it's over a year off but I'm getting excited!

Travelmore, it's not a very long drive to Omagh but if you want to spend a night on the way there how about Carlingford (www.carlingford.ie) rather than Newry?

On your way to Omagh make sure to make time for a visit to Navan Fort (Emain Macha) just outside Armagh (www.armagh.co.uk/place/navan-centre-fort/).

Enjoy the planning!

Thanks for the tip about Navan Fort, Clauds, I appreciate it.

Yes perhaps we will drive through to Omagh and not stop overnight on the way - would prefer staying less places but using them as a base for day trips. Time permitting though I want to take the driving slowly and explore along the way.

Should take advantage while the other two are with me to share the driving..
