We are visiting Ireland for the second time, this time taking our 23 year old daughter Kelly. We have not been to Dublin and would like to spend about 5 days in the area. Is it reasonable to see downtown Dublin sights along with some day trips in this amount of time?
We are from Colorado USA and are thinking of staying in a more quiet, country or seaside area just outside Dublin. But it needs to be a town where we can easily catch the train to Dublin, perhaps no more than a 30 or 45 minute ride. Any recommendations?
The two side trips we want to take are Bru na Boinne and Glendalough.
thanks for any advice you can give us!
