I have a trip I'm planning with my father for his 70th. It's just the two of us (I'm the daughter) and it'll probably be the only time we get to visit Ireland.
I'm looking at the following:
Days 1&2 - Dublin
We might get a Day 11 (fingers crossed!) and if we can I'll probably use it in Galway.
Couple of specific questions. Is Tullamore the best place to stay in Cty. Offaly? And after landing in Dublin should we stay the night there in the city or head straight to Trim then bus it back to the city for visiting/sight-seeing the first two days?
We'll be renting a car. Our interests lie in historical relevance (Dad was a History teacher) and the outdoors (hiking/walking in particular). Budget-wise we're right in the middle.
I welcome any and all tweaks to this itinerary. I've been reading some of the posts and threads and you guys are Awesome!
Thanks for all your generous advice!!!
