I’m planning a trip to Ireland in April for me and my boyfriend from April 3rd to the 15h. We will be flying out of Philly on the 3rd and landing the morning of the 4th in Dublin. We’ll be staying in Dublin the whole time for this trip but we want to take some trips outside of Dublin to see certain sights while we’re there. I’m looking at doing two days in Galway to see the Cliffs of Moher and Kylemore Abbey as well as one day in Wicklow to see the area as well as the Manchester V Fulham game in Manchester that is the main reason for going according to my avid footie fan boyfriend.. The itinerary looks a little something like this.
4th- Arrive. HOHO tour to get bearings and then just walk around Dublin seeing people and sights.
6th- Galway Connemara and Kylemore Tour.
7th- Galway Cliffs of Moher Tour
8th- Dublin to see St. Stephens, National Museum Archaeology and a few other sites.
9th- Manchester v Fulham game in Manchester.
12th- Wicklow and Glendalough Tour with Over the Top Tours
15th- Dublin/Fly home in afternoon
Theres obviously some gaps in the itinerary as we try and decide what in Dublin we want to do. I just want to know if this itinerary seems too ambitious for those of you who have been on these kind of trips before or if it seems feasible at all. Further information is we’re both in our late 20’s and this is his first trip to Ireland but not mine as I visited Belfast and Wicklow and Kylemore when I was a student in England. I’d appreciate any feedback on how the plans look, if you all think this is a too much in not enough time or if it seems feasible. I’m not sure yet how we’ll get to the Man U game (Either fly from Dublin or take a ferry and then the train) but I have traveled in Manchester before so that’s not too big a deal for me.
