Congratulations on these wonderful milestones, and how lovely that you are planning on celebrating it on the Emerald Isle! :)
I completely understand it can be difficult to choose when there are so many options, and I'm more than happy to point you in the right direction so you can plan an unforgettable trip.
All of the locations on your itinerary so far are wonderful, and definitely doable if you're making your own way around by rental car
. You can find everything you need to know about renting a car on the Island of Ireland in this thread
, including information about travelling between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Dublin, as well as the other cities
, are easily explored on foot or by public transport. Take a look at the Public Transport VS Car Hire
thread for helpful resources.
Using one place as a base to explore the area from is a great idea as well. For example, if you're staying in Belfast, from there you can venture out on the Causeway Coastal Route
to see Dunluce Castle, the Giant's Causeway, Bushmills and more!

Lastly, take a look at all the tourist board approved and recommended hotels, B&B's and other accommodation in Belfast
and anywhere else
