2019 Visit in the Works!

Just 'Pulled the trigger' on air tickets for our up-coming 2019 visit (this coming May)!  It's gonna be a strange / different one, though.  Bringing along another couple that have traveled with us many times before (3 times, to Ireland), but we are 'Expanding our Horizons' QUITE a bit, this go 'round.

Flying into Brussels on 2 May for 3 nights.  Train to Berlin for an over-night (6 May) and then, onward, to Prague (also by train) for another 3 nights.  Leaving Prague for an over-night in Auschwitz (Poland) on 10 May and then taking an early morning train back to Prague Airport, for a late afternoon flight into Dublin, on 11 May.  We will depart DUB on 18 May to return to our respective homes via ATL.

So far, the plan is to spend two nights (12 & 13 May) in Midelton, visit Knock Shrine (at SOME point) and end up in Dublin area for the night of 17 May.  Our flight on 18 May departs at 11:00 AM, so haven't decided if an airport hotel (Premier Inn, usually) will factor in, or not.   confuse   confuse 

One of the ladies joining us has had a rough few years -- She's an only child and lost both her parents after years of caring for them  -- and, then, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Chemo was particularly rough sledding, but she's weathered that, now and been given an excellent prognosis.  Still, this trip will be focusing on HER 'must see', so I don't have much of a clue (YET!) as to how our Ireland time will 'settle out'.

I'll be adding to this as the planning progresses, though -- as I'm always 'up' for a good suggestion or three!  biggrin

What an interesting combo trip. Sounds like your friends input will be most important. I would still do the airport hotel on your last night as you will need to be at the airport by 8 am.
