Good Evening, i'm Annamaria from Italy and me and my husband are planning to visit finally Ireland this October from the 10th to the 17th.
We stay just one week and we plan to Visit : Dublin, Hill of Tara, Trim Castle, Dunguaire Castle (we know that is close in October..but maybe just for picture for a Medieval Banch)  Bunratty Castle, King John's Castle,  Dingle peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Ross Castle, Cashel Rock, Kilkenny Castle, San Canice Cathedral. 
Do you think is a good plan or I have to cancel something? Is too much for just a week?  I've some difficult to understand where sleep during the road. We love nature, castle, nice village and good food... in particular good food! 
We 're looking forward to be there! 
Thanks in advice for your help 
Annamaria

Ciao Annamaria!

You chose a very beautiful period to come and visit Ireland. I love all the colors of the autumn leaves here 🍂 and the weather can be very nice.

The amount of things and places you want to see in the time you have available is up to you and depends on how you like to spend your holiday time: I personally prefer taking all the time I want when visiting places, even if that means to see less. 

Anyhow, keep in mind that Irish distances are not big so trying to see more attractions is absolutely feasible.

Regarding your sleeping question, you can use this accommodation searching tool to find places to stay for the night, and since you like nature and particular accommodation, you can take a look at these options. 😉

Good food, ha... We're on the same track, Annamaria!
This article will inspire your eating choices while on the island.

I'm so excited for your coming soon trip to the Emerald Island!

Hi Marcella!
Tnx a lot for your advice ( especially for the food one  ;P ) 
I think that i'm not explained very weel about what i mean for " I've some difficult to understand where sleep during the road" : what i wanted to say is that in that  hypothetical path, i don't know where to stop , which village ( excluding dingle becose i absolutely want to sleep there ) is the best near these attractions . 
I'm very happy that you mean the weather in autumn, becose i was a little worried, and what you've sayd in your reply confort me . 
Thank a lot for your kind help
Annamaria

Di nulla, Annamaria!

Regarding your concern for where to stop near the attractions you’d like to visit, what I can tell you is that everywhere will be fine, because all villages and towns in Ireland are nice and very typical so you won’t be disappointed.

When I travel and I haven’t decided in advance where to stop, I like to let a place inspire me and make me decide to stop there (go with the flow). You can also use a map just to have a look at towns and villages in the surroundings and then pick the ones that arouse your curiosity.
The accommodation searching tool I gave you lets you also view results on a map.

And for the weather, don’t forget to wear layers (vestiti a strati!). Keep in mind that Irish weather is famous for being very unpredictable. 🌞🌧️🌞☁️🌈

Buona scelta!

Hi again to everyone !
Last October ( 2 days before my holiday plan start ) I've received a new working call, so I can't came to Ireland as I planned, BUT, I don't give up, and I'll try again this April for Easter holiday from the 9th to the 14th (but I've the plane back early in the morning so I can't count the 14th as a good day), so I've 5 fully day !
Is April a good season to visit Ireland or is it still "early"? (I mean if attraction are closed because it is low season) 
Is there something particular and traditional, like a festival to see? 
I know that in Ireland the weather is very changeable, but I've read that April is not a good month for traveling there, I hope it is not true. 
Thanks a lot in advance for your answers as always!

Buongiorno Annamaria e buon 2020. 😊

I'm sorry you couldn't make your planned trip to Ireland last October, but I truly like your spirit.
Yes, don't give up! 👍

We like to say "It's always a good time to come and visit Ireland!", so don't worry about the weather (as you said, it's unpredictable, which also means that you could have wonderful days during your visit 😉); in April, you will enjoy the Spring, the colors and the nice smell of the blossomed fields.

I've put together few pages In this album: you can find some information on the weather in Ireland, festivals during the whole year (April included), a search page for events and some suggestions on what to do in April.

Regarding the attractions, most of them will be open, unless there are any exceptional situations for closing. I advise you to check on the specific websites to be sure you can access them.

Buona programmazione e tienici aggiornati!
