I have an upcoming trip to Ireland. Me and my spouse (both 30) are going.
Day 1 arriving in dublin at 8:30 AM
Day 2 --- unplanned
Day 3 --- Spending in Dublin
Day 4 --- Spending in Dublin
Day 5 leaving dublin at 11:30 AM wife returning home for work
Day 6 leaving dublin at 5:30 AM myself departing to onward trip
Of our 4 day trip, the latter 2 days I booked a hotel in Dublin leaving the first two days to hit one or two places outside.
Other than the city names, i don't know too much about which is busier etc.
Our interests : I like to checkout a couple of serene Irish towns, meet a few people at the pub and listen to music and maybe watch some folk dance, have a pint and eat local food, and if possible stay someplace on airbnb.
Having the second part of our trip in Dublin will be enough walking around and seeing stuff there. I am certain there will be enough to do in Dublin for all our trip, but I want to do something like this.
I looked at Sligo, it seems like a good choice with the Cos Cos Sean Nós Festival it will be fun. Could you please provide me with some insight.
