We are planning a trip to Scotland in may of 2020. We want to self-drive.
But while we are in that neck of the woods we want to visit Doe Castle in Donegal (ancient roots). We would fly into Dublin, rent a car and drive over to Cleeselough or there-abouts, stopping along the way for Bru na Boine, visit the castle, and the Beltany Circle, and then back towards Balleycastle and the Ferry to Campbelltown (I think I have all that right).
Given we will be arriving in Dublin after a nine hour flight, I suspect we want to spend the night in Dublin andsee ChristChurch Cathedral the next day before setting off to Donegal..
Never having been to Scotland or Ireland, I guess my question is: Is this do-able in three days?
The most daunting aspect of all this (aside from the fact that I will be 74 in 2020) is knowing the distances and driving times, and whether we can book a B&B on-the-fly- in May? In Dublin, Cleeslough (?), and perhaps Ballycastle?
Any advice would be appreciated.
