I have a basic itinerary mapped out for our upcoming trip to Ireland. We are road warriors who love driving trips, scenery and local life is our passion We aren't big on castles, museums and the such when we do these road tripos . We do that when we are on a "stay put" type of trip.
Our purpose is to "see" Ireland at a general level and then return with a more specific focus.
Here is what I'm thinking..... ...more or less..... based on your help and research here and elsewhere. The locations shown are targets for our nightly stays. Tons of flexibility except for the Dublin dates and the Ennis dates...rooms are booked. The plan would be to find accommodations , other than Dublin and Ennis, as we go.
Is the agenda doable? Are we missing something significant? We aren't doing much inland is that a big mistake? Does it make more sense to eliminate a night in one location to maximize sight seeing time...for example does it make more sense to spend two nights in Donegal and eliminate Sligo or skip? And of course any recommendations for accommodations, eating, pubbing and exploring are always welcome.
You folk are so generous with your time and advice. I can't imagine how many vacations have been made so much better because of your knowledge . Thank you
