We are family of four and have 3 nights to spend somewhere besides Dublin (2nights in Dublin). We were looking at the Galway area. We were thinking of renting a car in Dublin when we arrive at the airport and taking off from there to arrive in Galway area later afternoon. We are in need of advice on nice places to stay and things to see. We like the outdoors - beach/hiking etc. My husband was wondering about staying in a castle? Don't know if there is a central place for us to stay all 3 nights or if we would be better off moving from hotel to hotel each night to see more. Unfortunately, it appears that we didn't plan enough time to see everything!
