this september we (2 adults) will land in dublin & rent a car. we then have 10 days to return to dublin.
1. can we see most of the country & belfast driving along the coast & still wanting to stop to smell the roses, sea, whiskey, & beer?
are we being too ambitious - this will probably be our 1 & only visit to ireland.
2. is an automatic car a better option - can drive manual but have never on the left side.
your favorite hints, b&bs, sights etc are welcomed & greatly appreciated...thanks!
