We are traveling from New York to Dublin for 8 days in April. The question is whether we rent a car or try to travel via bus or rail. There are clearly challenges driving and taking in the landscape. We are interested in history, culture, the arts and the landscape. Pubs, music etc. are not a priority. Although our itinerary is in the formative stages and I am slightly confused with all the possibilities, it looks somewhat like the following.
1. fly into Dublin-take bus to Galway
2. See cliffs of Moher, Burren
3. Dingle and Kerry
Kilkernny via Glendalough
If we did take public transit with the above in mind, what are the possibilities?
Your opinion and suggestions are most appreciated.
