It's great to hear that you are planning on visiting us for a wedding, and I'm happy you're staying a little bit longer to explore the island. :)
July is a wonderful time of year to visit, and there are lots of different places between Galway and Cork that would be suitable to use as a base. What did you have in mind so far, and is there anything you absolutely wouldn't want to miss while you're here?
Depending on what you would like to see and do you can then decide what would be the best location(s). Take a look at these Trip Ideas
for more inspiration, and if you'd like to venture off the beaten track on your way from Galway to Dublin, this itinerary
could come in handy.
Since you are interested in Celtic history, have you thought about travelling along the east coast? Ireland's Ancient East
is filled with history, and you can find everything from beautiful coastlines, landscapes, music and more there.
Riley recently shared her own adventures and itinerary on the following thread
, and you might find more tips, ideas and suggestions for your time between Galway and Cork there too. :)
