If we are flying in/out of Dublin and have only 10 days, what are the highlights we can't miss? And we'd love to make it to London...do we have time?? I'll take any recommendations!
You have time for anything that is a priority for you. Do you have time to see much of Ireland and London? no....
I would suggest thinking through what are the most important sites or experiences that you want to do on this trip. Rank them in order. Looking at that list and then a map should help you realize what your priorities and limitations are. I encourage to balance your "must see" list with the time it would take to travel to each location.
To go beyond Ireland and Northern Ireland you'd have to add two flights or ferry journeys to your itinerary. You'd need to be back in Ireland the night before your flight home, which in most cases would also add an otherwise-unnecessary hotel change. It's definitely not something I'd want to do on a short trip. Ferries are slow, and dealing with airports is stressful.
Hello from Wisconsin,
10 days for Dublin (not Ireland) and London (not England), sure. Does your flight land in Dublin and leave from London? If not then 2 days are shot in the butt traveling to London and back to Dublin.
10 full days? 2-3 in Dublin 7-8 in London. Depends on what you want to see/experience.
If you haven't tried booking a open jaw trip, give it a try.
