Hello, my husband and I are flying in and out of Dublin March 19-29. We are hoping for some feedback on our below very FULL itinerary. With kids in the future we want to take this time to see as much as we can as it will be a long time till we can come back. Please advise on things we should eliminate or add or different places to go / not go. We have never been to Ireland and are hoping so well versed Ireland travelers can give us some input. Just a note we only have one full 24 hours in Dublin to explore as neither of us love huge cities and would rather explore the rest of the Ireland.
