Hello - My husband and I will visit Ireland in late July - I know - the height of the season - we will begin with 1.5 days in Dublin and then, hopefully, travel around the remainder of Ireland. We are reluctant to hire a car - price is way expensive - but we fear we will miss many of the scenic back roads if we do bus/train travel. I also am thinking after paying bus/train fare for two, we might be paying the price of a car hire anyway. We have driven in UK, so that is not an issue. If we wish to do public transportation, where would be some good locations to base our trip? We are looking for traditional experiences, music, historical sites, outdoor activities. I trust the advice on TA, so please help --- thanks!
