April/May is a super time to visit, the days are getting longer and the weather is pretty nice too!
A wonderful route from Dublin would be traveling up Ireland's Ancient East
, plenty of history and legends to fill your time as you make your way up towards Belfast and Northern Ireland.
The Causeway Coastal Route
was voted one of the best drives and it certainly lives up to it with some lovely coastal scenery, places to visit and of course Game of Thrones
locations too, including visiting some of the doors made out of the two trees that fell down in a previous storm.
Carrying on into The Republic of Ireland and the start of the Wild Atlantic Way
takes you past some more wonderful coastline and lots of places to stop and take in the views. Head down towards Galway
and take in the delights of this city and surrounding areas.
An alternative route, as you have a limited time with us, would be down from Dublin towards Cork
, around the coast to Killarney, County Kerry
and then up towards Galway again before returning to Dublin.
For accommodation, with have an approved accommodation
search page which would be useful, enter a destination and a type to see what is available. I have preselected Belfast and Hotels but please feel free to change the type and destination to best suit your needs.
Regarding vehicle rental
, please take a look at our information on driving on the island of Ireland
, we do drive on the left, most cars are a manual drive but you can choose an auto option, check with any supplier for availability and their terms and conditions regarding insurance and deposits as these vary.
I hope this gives you lots of inspiration, and I'm sure your fellow members and some industry partners will be able to add to this list!
If you need any more help, just let me know!
