My husband, 10 year old daughter and myself will be travelling in April. We will be arriving in Dublin following a stay in London on 3/31 and will fly to Amsterdam on 4/8. We have not made reservations yet for the Ireland/Amsterdam flight so we could fly out of an airport other than Dublin.
We would love to see much of the country, but would like to be realistic and not stay in a different hotel every night. Ideally, we would keep the hotel hopping to once every 3 nights.
We also would prefer to stay in hotels over B&Bs if possible. My husband works for one of the "big" travel companies so we get fairly large discounts on hotels and would like to take advantage of that.
We plan on renting a car, but probably not until we are leaving Dublin. I am not sure if it would be better to train out of Dublin and rent a car in another city?
Any thoughts on an itinerary that would allow us to see the "must sees" but not overwhelm and exhaust us would be so very much appreciated.
