Heading to Ireland on Friday!
 
Since I saw a few other travel threads, I decided to unleash some of my excitement. the wife and I and another couple are doing an 8 night Ireland trip next week. We fly into Dublin and get a rental car and enough B&B vouchers for the trip that are basically taken at every B&B in Ireland, then fly out of Shannon 8 nights later. So freaking excited! These next 2 work days are going to go so slow...

I have a few PMs with Loweface, we may be meeting up for a few towards the end of the trip.

I don't know what type of activities you are interested in, but if you like outdoors stuff I would wholly recommend going to western Ireland, including Kerry and the Dingle peninsula. It's the most scenic part of Ireland and has a lot to offer all within a short distance. And it has some very nice B&B's with the most amazing views of the ocean/countryside. Dublin is OK, but I think you will have a better time in Ireland when outside the main cities.

I attended University in Cork for two years and have pretty much covered the whole Island both as a tourist and a tour guide for my friends and family. If you want any suggestions or particular info ect... I'd be happy to help.
