Looking at your 12 day itinerary would spend a total of 14 days. Would start in Dublin spend at least two nights and want two nights in Belfast. We would like to spend two night stays along the way on that itinerary which would cover 10 days Could you suggest hotels or B & B in the moderate price range and where to stop overnight.
Also we were thinking either June or September is one better then the other to come and visit.

Thank you for your assistance

Hi Glynis,

It's great to hear that you have been looking at our trip idea for a 12 day all around Ireland.

June and September are both great times to visit, so either time would be fine. June has our longest days if this is something that you are looking for, please take a look at our weather page for some details as well.

Dublin and Belfast are perfect cities to spend some extra time as you travel around, always plenty to see and do.

We have a wonderful accommodation page on our website too. The where to stay section has filters that allow you to select an area and type of accommodation to look for. Simply scroll down the page, click on the show filters button and apply the ones you want. This will reveal the places based on your choice.

We hope this helps, will this be your first time with us?

This will be our first trip to Ireland so excited as this will be a trip of a life time.  We wanted to see as much as possible that is why the 12 day tour looked interesting. 
I can look at hotels but was asking on your 12 day tour, taking into consideration on the distance, where would it make sense to stop for the 2 night stays along  the way weather it be a town or city. 
When we start our trip in Dublin do we need a car or should we book a car once we are ready to leave. 
If you have any other suggestions weather it be local car rentals, attractions any think that will make this trip fulfilling, we would appreciate it. 

Thank you again Martin for your help

Hi Glynis,

How wonderful, your first trip to see us, we can understand why you liked the idea of the 12-day tour!

While in Dublin itself, everything is easy to get to so maybe wait until you leave to get the hire car, there is always the hop-on hop-off bus if you don't fancy walking too much. There are all the usual car rental companies in the city or even your airline sometimes have preferred options. 🚗

So, where to stay! Cork City is a good idea, plenty of choices of places to stay and visit from this location. If you go through Kilkenny and maybe Waterford on the way that will leave you time to discover the areas west of cork before heading up to Galway for instance. Again a super place to stay with all of the main attractions of the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, and the lovely town of Doolin.

From there you have a choice of Sligo or Donegal for your next base, both super locations to explore this Wild Atlantic Way section. Finally, before heading to Belfast, a time in Derry~Londonderry would be ideal. From the Inishowen Peninsula down to the counties of Fermanagh and Tyrone for all the excellent attractions here too.

Whether you choose the cities or smaller towns in the areas will depend on your own preferences, there are some excellent hotels in some of the smaller locations.

I have probably missed out more than I have included but this will give you a good start, I hope! 🙂

Martin
