We are visiting Ireland for the first time over the Christmas holiday and into the new year. We will end our trip in Dublin for either a two or three night stay over New Years Eve. I am a Hilton Diamond member and wondering which property you would recommend, based on location, cost, and points.
Hilton Dublin Kilmainham - 102 Euro - 30,000 points,
Conrad - 164 Euro - 40,000 points,
DoubleTree The Morrison -179 Euro - 50,000 points,
DoubleTree Burlington Road - 89 Euro -23,000 points,
We will not have a car, so transportation will be either via taxi, bus, train, or on foot.
We are interested in Dublin Castle, Guinness, Jameson's, etc. plus whatever sites you can recommend.
Should we stay two or three nights? We want to experience the Dublin lifestyle too, but we do not have to be in the thick of it.
Our trip will begin in Kinsale for three nights, then two nights in a Dingle. We haven't decided on one or two nights in Galway or some place close to Galway? Or do we go back through Cork or some place else?
So many questions.
And last, are we crazy for visiting in December? This trip is with our two sons and daughter-in law.... their idea! ;)
Thanks for any input and your time.
