Yeah, I drove almost 1100 miles in Ireland. We stayed in B&Bs everywhere.

We were in Slane the day AFTER U2 played at Slane Castle and recorded their concert...talk about bad timing...

I lived in Germany for 9 years and am well traveled, but I have to say that the Irish were the FRIENDLIEST people we met in all of Europe.

That's what we did, too - rented a car and just drove all over the country. B&B's are much cheaper than hotels, and usually nicer too. Only way to do it.

I hear you about them being friendly - We were in a pub one night and an old crusty guy sat down next to us and started drinking with us. When he found out we were from America he started singing Johnny Cash songs because he was his favorite singer (Mine too). Then he gave us his address and wanted us to crash at his house - I was going to mail him a Johnny Cash album when we got back to the States, but I lost the address

I still remember his name, though - Daniel O'Keefe from Kildare.
