We are in the early planning stages for our 3 week trip in late April/early May 2018. We want to visit ancestral hometowns in Mid Wales (Welshpool and Newtown) and Cork, Clare, and Kerry areas in Ireland. This is our first visit to both countries and I wanted to ask what people think.
We are flying from Connecticut to Dublin where we will spend a couple days.
Take the ferry from Dublin to Holyhead and make our way to Newtown and Welshpool.
Return to Ireland via the Fishguard ferry to Rosslare.
Return home from the Shannon Airport to Boston.
We will need to rent a car. We like to stay at Bed and Breakfast places, love museums, gardens, exploring towns and cruising the backroads as well as the coastline.
I welcome your feedback and suggestions.
