We'll be coming from Seattle for six days (not including travel). Also, is late April (around Easter) a good time to visit? Highlights near Castleblaney? Thank you!
Welcome to Michele's Forum.
Is 6 days too short? In a perfect world -- Yes. BUT -- If 6 days is all you have, then it IS better than 5, or less!
You will just need to lower your expectations, in relation to what sites you'll have time for.
As to the Castleblaney area -- There are numerous sites either in the vicinity, or within day trip range.
What are your interests -- Ancient ruins, music / pub scene / scenic walks (or, drives), shopping, Churches, city visits Belfast and Dublin are nearby)? ? ?
Will you have a car?
Are you spending all six nights in Castleblaney?
Weather is always a question, but I've enjoyed numerous visits in April. Most of the Seasonal businesses usually reopen around Easter. Lambing season will be well underway and the flora should be beginning to bloom with vibrancy.
