We are coming to Ireland in the end of November. We arrive on a Sunday and have booked a hire car for five days. We return to Dublin on the Friday and have already booked two nights accommodation there. We will attend the Wallabies vs Ireland Rugby match on the Saturday and then fly out Sunday. We would like to travel to the south of Ireland. What five towns do we stay in? Do we just drive and see where we end up and find accommodation at the end of each day?

Hi Chris,
Such choice on Dublins' Doorstep! We suggest visiting Wicklow, Wexford and Waterford then maybe head back to Dublin via Kilkenny and Kildare.
For inspiration visit our tours site which features great places to visit along this area aka Irelands' Ancient East

Hello Chris

Welcome to the community.

You could drive down to Cork when you arrive and work your way back to Dublin by stopping off in WaterfordWexford & Wicklow.

I would Suggest booking places to stay when before you arrive in Ireland. Booking.com has a good list of Hotels and B&B's.

Co. Wicklow has a lot to offer in the way of Attractions, Accomodation, Activities and Food & Drink

Hi Chris! 

There's loads of amazing places you can explore from Dublin, and you've already been given some great suggestions of places on Dublin's Doorstep and along the Sunny South East

If your heart isn't already set on the south of Ireland though, you could consider heading up to Northern Ireland for your trip! Did you know that Belfast is just a two hour drive from Dublin? In Belfast, you will experience history and culture different from any other part of Ireland, with world-famous attractions such as Titanic Belfast right on your doorstep. If you prefer to escape to the countryside, you will have plenty of options, as from Belfast you could follow the Causeway Coastal Route. This route will guide you all along Ireland’s north coast from Belfast to Derry~Londonderry, and as it's only 195 miles, you could easily complete a portion (or all) of the journey in a few days. 

This sample itinerary outlines different points of interest along the route, such as the Giant's Causeway, the Carrick-A-Rede rope-bridge and Dunluce Castle. Some nice towns and villages to stay over in include, Ballycastle, Portrush and Portstewart.

As you make your back towards Dublin, you could travel inland through Armagh, known as "Orchard County" or explore some Ireland's Ancient East in Monaghan and Louth.

I hope this gives you some more ideas for your trip, and have a wonderful time in November! :)

Hi Chris,

It's a lovely time of year to visit Ireland. Just a note to take into account that it will be dark around 5pm by end of November in the East of the country. So, it may curtail your sightseeing a bit as you won't fit as much in in the day as you would in the Summer, however, it does give you plenty of time to explore cosy pubs and restaurants in the evening!
You have great suggestions above, you shouldn't have too many issues getting accommodation at that time of year so you can be as flexible as you like.

Enjoy!

Sandra.

Hi Chris
Ireland is a small island but if you spend your 5 days driving you will never really get to experience all there is to offer
Depending on your interests you should pick a spot say Cork, it is only a 2.5 hour drive, but you might as well take in some of the sites on route, you won't cover it all
Take a look at https://www.google.ie/maps/dir/Dublin+Airport,+Collinstown,+Dublin/Kilkenny+Castle,+Kilkenny/Rock+of+Cashel,+Cashel/Cork+City/Killarney,+County+Kerry/Kenmare/Adare,+Limerick/Dublin+Airport,+Dublin/@52.6345333,-9.0221309,8z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m50!4m49!1m5!1m1!1s0x486711be6993192f:0x55121bb5b725f355!2m2!1d-6.2499098!2d53.4264481!1m5!1m1!1s0x485d309fa9de5927:0x788011913aa84af!2m2!1d-7.249523!2d52.6499291!1m5!1m1!1s0x485ccbde708a41f5:0xcc3e472ab1b680dd!2m2!1d-7.8904521!2d52.5200763!1m5!1m1!1s0x484490054c045601:0xebe68187c18d13ca!2m2!1d-8.4706315!2d51.8987528!1m5!1m1!1s0x48453c0cb4976ed9:0xa00c7a9973174c0!2m2!1d-9.5044265!2d52.0599353!1m5!1m1!1s0x48456cab08fc9d19:0xa00c7a9973217f0!2m2!1d-9.5835202!2d51.8801017!1m5!1m1!1s0x485b4608c27f6a15:0x1d7eda2ebba3ec31!2m2!1d-8.7850457!2d52.5615861!1m5!1m1!1s0x486711be6993192f:0x55121bb5b725f355!2m2!1d-6.2499098!2d53.4264481!3e0
that is Dublin - Kilkenny - Rock of Cashel - Cork City - Kenmare - Killarney - Limerick back to Dublin
meander the country roads make a City with a motorway your destination for the last 36 hours so you are comfortable getting back to Dublin
alternatively you can hit for Galway and work your way down the coast, try to narrow down the kind of sights you want to see along the way, don't pack it all in!
Enjoy every second
Regards
Majella
