My son and I are planning on going to Ireland and England next summer, before meeting my wife and daughter in Paris.
In Ireland, I'm thinking of going to the Dingle Peninsula and seeing the Gaeltacht. Our focus in Ireland will be just the southwest part of the country.
In England, I know that my son, who will be 10, will enjoy London and Warwick.
1) Given the places we want to go, how much time should we allow in each country?
2) I'm confident that in England, we will get around just fine on the Tube and on Britrail. But for Ireland, should I rent a car?
3A) Should we fly to Ireland, then continue on to England and then take the Chunnel from London to Paris? If so, what's the best way to get from Shannon, Ireland, to London?
3B) Or should we fly to London, then go to Warwick and Ireland, and then take the ferry from Ireland to France? Does the ferry to France leave from Shannon, or is there bus/rail service available from Shannon to the ferry departure point?
