My husband and I are first time visitors to Ireland and he really wants to see the northern part of the country. We will be leaving from Dublin with the intention of seeing Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery and other sights. Where is the best place for us to stay so we can get an early start the next morning for GC, etc.? I would rather drive one day and get a fresh start the next rather than try and cram it all in. We will have seven days total and would love to see some of the southern part of the Republic also. Doable?
