Hey everyone! I'm planning a trip for 6 of us ladies and I REALLY want to get it right. None of us ladies has splurged on a holiday like this without kids in at least a decade and some of the funds were gifted to me as part of a "dream fund" because I have a terminal illness. We have all lived internationally for at least a few months - Kenya, Germany, Damascus, Ukraine, and India. So we're pretty experienced travelers. I know I need to cut something, I just can't figure out what! Feel free to give your advice. We need a month! We're headed to Scotland for a week after Ireland.
None of us are super ambitious with needing to check everything off the list and cram it all in.
Fly into Dublin, see the museum and the famous library
From there to Glendalough
On to Kilkenny and the Rock of Cashel
On to Kinsale and Cobh
On to Ring of Kerry and then Dingle
On to Cliffs of Moher and back to Dublin
So is what would you leave out if you only had 5 days? We're not interested in staying in the cities. We hope to stay for 2 nights in 2 places that we can use as a home base and plan to use AirBnBs or regular BnBs in villages or small towns. We can drive but would rather rely on public transport. I don't know if this is feasible. We wouldn't be adverse to doing a few guided tours but aren't really the types to get on and off a tour bus for 5 days!
Submitting this for your wise counsel!
