Husband, 19 yr. old son and I are arriving at Shannon Friday May 23 (best price tickets from NYC) and going straight to Dublin for our first 2 nights. We love castles, beautiful scenery and hikes and local 'road trip' oddities. We're not wanting to rush our way to Dublin, so suggestions that will take a few hours are welcome!
I'll be posting for more suggestions as we firm up an itinerary (headed in a circle up to the glens of antrim and the northern coastal route, Derry, then back along the west to Shannon - last day will be Cliffs of Moher, Burren and Bunratty castle I think)
thanks in advance for the help - trip advisor folks have always been WONDERFUL at helping me construct amazing trips
