Husband and I have been invited to a wedding July 14 in Co. Kilkenny. We are experienced travelers, but first time to Ireland... only have about 6 days to play with total. Looking for suggestions on how to get the most out of this brief visit: thinking to fly into Dublin and stay there a day or two to see some of the city before heading down to Kilkenny. Where to stay and must-sees in Dublin? Would like to keep hotel budget <250 EU/nt if possible. Then on Sunday after wedding.... back to Dublin via the coast maybe? Or on to somewhere else for a couple days? Doesn't really look like Kilkenny is close to anything in particular. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! We are pretty open to any worthwhile sights/experiences; walks/hikes are good (but not crazy strenuous); tend to prefer outdoor scenery & views over museums; cathedrals/castles would be cool. Thanks!!
