Just returned from England and now we've spotted a steal of a flight to Ireland the last week of October. "We" are me, 29, and Mom, 59.
I tend to be a spontaneous but cautious traveler so want to check to see if there's any major red flags in my logic/plan.
Bear in mind this has only been in the sphere of possibilities for about 48 hours...
Dates would be Oct 21-29, direct flight. We will absolutely not have a car, so I initial thought was to arrive in Dublin, train right away to Galway. Stay there for 3-4 nights with a couple day trips, Cliffs of Moher tour being one of them. Then train back to Dublin, stay the remaining 3/4 nights with maybe one day trip from there.
Cork also looks interesting but I know better than to overfill a schedule.
General interests include history, castles, Irish music, stunning scenery (but not hiking), good food, and exploring new cities. We're also suckers for cute shops. We're not into museums, but enjoy guided tours of historical sights.
This is a budget trip as it was not at all in the plans until I found $500CAD RT direct flights.
Problems with this plan? Room for more?
Not sure this will happen but I won't know until I figure out some logistics. Your thoughts are most appreciated 🙂.
