Me and my husband are looking to travel to Ireland in September. Our flight departs from Chicago on Friday September 7th to Dublin and then we will be in Ireland till Saturday September 15th.
This is our first visit and not sure the best options in order to see the most of Ireland. I have looked into guided bus tours and thought about renting a car, however it is a bit intimidating to have to drive on the different side of the road and I wasn't sure about parking and gas.
I really would like to travel to the Southern part of Ireland to see Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle, The Skelligs, Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Isles, Ashford Castle, Kylemore Abbey, Possibly Glendalough, Galway, Connemara Park. As I know only having minimal time I will not be able to see all of this.
In Northern Ireland, Belfast, Giant's Causeway, abd the Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge. Then in Belfast maybe the Black Taxi Tours. Maybe the Dark Hedges.
Like I said we have minimal time. Looked into doing a tour of the SouthWest attractions of Ireland and then returning to Dublin to do like a day tour or 2 day tour to Northern Ireland.
Looking at CIE 6 day Taste of Ireland Tour D
Nervous about the hotels or B&B's, don't know what to expect.
I need help and appreciate any suggestions anyone can offer. Thank you.
