My husband and I are traveling to Ireland in late April. I believe we'll primarily be along the coast, from Dublin around to maybe even Westport (and possibly cutting across the country through Athlone). We'll be renting a car, and while we'll have our basic itinerary planned (which will include many of the bigger "must sees," like Galway, Dingle, Kinsale, etc.), we'd like to visit many small, quaint Irish towns that are off the beaten path.
Which towns do you recommend? What have you seen that you'd love to go back to? I'd like to hear suggestions about ones you might not necessarily find in any guidebook.
