My wife and I are flying into Dublin on March 7, and are taking a self-guided tour through the 19th, departing Shannon. We plan on spending a day or two in and around Dublin - but I'm not sure whether we should get a car at the airport or wait until we depart Dublin. We're thinking about staying (the first couple of days) in Dun Laoghaire and traveling into Dublin -
I hear Dublin traffic is a nightmare (I've driven in both NYC traffic and LA). Any advice? Forget the car until we're leaving Dublin?
Oh, and as an aside - we're going to bring the Garmin Nuvi - and I'm going to pick up the UK/Ireland map chip. Anyone use this for their trip? Any comments on it?
