It's so exciting you're planning on exploring the Emerald Isle next summer! I completely understand it can be quite overwhelming to plan your first trip yourself as there is so much to see and do. Luckily you've got plenty of time to create your itinerary, and I would love to provide you with some tips and ideas.Renting a ca
r is a great way to make your way around the island at your own pace. I would definitely take the time to explore each area you would like to visit, and leave some extra time to be able to make an unplanned detour. First of all I would start of with what you would like to see and do, so you can plan the best route between those options. What did you have in mind so far, or is there anything in particular you wouldn't want to miss?
Take a look at our Trip Hub
for our favourite road trips with suggestions on how long to stay in a particular area. This way you'll have an indication on how long the drive will take and where to stop. You can find more inspiration and ideas on our Destinations
page as well.
Most car rental companies will be able to provide you with a fully set up GPS system as well, so you wouldn't need to download anything yourself.
Lastly, take a look at the following thread from James as well. There are some very helpful tips and resources on how to create your own itinerary.
