We (husband, me, daughter aged 20, son aged 16) are travelling to Ireland from Vancouver Aug 13 to 27. We land in Dublin on Aug 14 after 12.5 hours of flying. We have two houses that are rent free for us...one in Tralee and one near Rossbeigh (sp?) Beach. My husband wants to head south the day we arrive and then tour Dublin at the end of our trip. I would like to rest up and explore Dublin for a couple of days first and then head south. Any advice from those who have Ireland experience?
