First time to Dublin

I'm planning on visiting Ireland for the first time at the end of May. I plan on staying in Dublin and perhaps venturing south toward Thurles and Tipperary. I'm from the US and am thinking about getting a car to visit Tipperary. How are the roads and driving for first-time visitors?

If anyone has suggestions for things to do and places to stay, I would welcome them. Thanks in advance.

Make sure you do the Kilmainham Jail visit.It was not just informative, but very sobering.Good overall history background for Ireland too.

If you take a look at the Top Questions about Dublin section on the right hand side of the Dublin Forum, you'll find tons of information, recommendations and suggestions for things to see and do, places to stay, eat, drink, shop, how to get around, transfer options from Dublin Airport, locations for day trips, maps etc. etc when visiting the capital. Have a read of these and then post again if you need more help.

We'd also suggest taking a look at the Top Questions about Ireland section on the Ireland Forum to help you plan your trip, including information on driving in Ireland. You'll also find information on public transport (bus and train) which maybe an option for you depending on where you want to visit.

It will help people here to recommend accommodation options if you give people an idea of what you are looking for (B&Bs, hotels, hostels, city centre or suburbs, etc) and where and maybe an idea of your budget in euro. Also so if you can give us some information about your interests, then we can recommend specific places to see and things to do.
