Greetings RS community! We (2 adults and 4 teens) are flying from Paris to Dublin for the final 3 days of our trip at the end of March. Our list of things to do in Ireland is, of course, too long, and looking for some insight to shrink it down to a handful of great memories (and a longing to return to see more). We have 3 full days. The family is interested in:
-the beauty (nature) of Ireland
-walking through charming towns/villages including pastel colored buildings/homes
-see/tour a castle (or lodge in one)
-visit county Clare - task from the grandparents :)
-experiencing a session of traditional music
We are ok renting a car to get around (or public trans if recommended). In my head I can see an itinerary like the following, but open to something totally different):
FRI: charming walks and music experience
SAT: nature drive (while ROK, cliffs of Moher and Dingle are popular destinations, I don't know if they are worth the travel time compared to other sights/experiences)
SUN: County Clare, see a castle (if not part of nature drive itinerary)
We are waffling between making a loop through Ireland over the course of the 3 days and establishing a home base and daily excursions.
Grateful in advance for your insight. I have read several posts to do some homework on my own, and that helped me articulate my thoughts above. Thanks!
