I've been reading all your tips, thank you. We are flying into Dublin, train to Galway, then getting a car to visit the area where my husband's family came from (NW part of the country).
We love small towns, churches, not at all into art museums. We went to Normandy last year and just flew in and out of Paris, didn't visit Paris at all.
Should we make time for Dublin? We have to come back to Dublin to spend a night before a flight back home, just wanted to know if there are things we shouldn't miss.
