I am taking the 14 day Ireland tour, April 21 – May 4.
My current plan is to stay on in Belfast plan one extra night after the tour ends . so Saturday, May 4. Then, at some point on Sunday, May 5th, take a bus to the Dublin airport, then the hotel shuttle to the Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport (my current booking), stay the night, and fly out on Monday, May 6th.
Now, I am considering making my way from Belfast to either Malahide or Howth (leaning toward Malahide, and have made a cancellable reservation at the Grand Hotel), and staying Sunday and Monday nights, changing flight to leave on Tuesday, May 7th. (If I did this, I would skip this town on my pre-tour day trips).
?What would be the best way to get from Belfast to Malahide. Would I take the same bus from Belfast to the airport, and then taxi to the hotel in Malahide or Howth? ?other suggestions
?Any other suggestions for lodging? There doesn't seem to be many options, and I would want it to be cancellable. I would want to be walking distance to the water, walking paths, restaurants, etc.
Thanks for any insights!!
