I am trying to plan our trip to Ireland and am frozen with indecision. We plan to leave Fort Myers FL on August 20th and return on either August 30th or 31st. Cannot go any other time. Of course, we want to see all the major sights! Would like to fly into Dublin and leave from Shannon. Intend to visit Belfast and the Giant's Causeway. But no self-driving - that's not even an option. Would it be sensible to use Dublin as a base and take day-trips or short tours? One thing I MUST do is to go to Ardfert,Tralee, Kerry to see where my ancestors came from. The more I think about things the more I get confused. Does anyone have some good, solid suggestions for me?
