Ok....., so after waaaay too many hours to count, of reading trip reports, reviews, copying, pasting, notes here and there (and everywhere), we are leaving on Monday (Aug 18th). I must say that having made a number of travel plans over the years, this has been one of the most intensive.
I have a 'bit' of angst about the driving (I won't be doing any of it, the angst comes from wanting to keep my marriage intact. Have already discussed with my adult daughters who will get custody of me, or him, when we return....)
In 22 days, we will stay in 1 hotel (Dublin), and 9 b&b's. Combo ticket from Dublin Airport is reserved, Guinness visit reserved, day trip from Dublin to Belfast and Giants Causeway reserved, and car is reserved with Dan Dooley (automatic with all insurance and the deed to all of our assets). Routes are (laughingly) planned from point A to B to C, sort of.
A note of thanks for all of the information that I have received here (which I won't admit to having checked every.single.day.) I will keep notes and report back on all the wonderful things we have done and seen.
It was 99 F (37 C) here in Houston today (that was in the shade), so 3 weeks of cool temps is looking mighty fine :) Sláinte!
