Honeymoon in Ireland


I am so happy that I found your fiance and I are travelling to Ireland in September 3rd-12th for our Honeymoon. Neither one of us has been to Ireland before. We booked with a travel agent and basically we have airfares, rental car, and B&B vouchers for the 10 days. We fly into Dublin and out of Shannon. What route do you recommend we take? We are in our mid 20s and are very active. Do you recommend booking the B&Bs in advance? We really wanted to get up every morning and decide what to do for the day. We don't want to plan ahead too much. I have spent the better part of the year planning the wedding. By the way, are you from Georgia? I went to Clemson University in SC for college.

Anyway, thanks for your response. I ordered your book yesterday on-line.

Re: Honeymoon in Ireland

Hi Kellee,

Congratulations on your upcomming marriage! Ireland is a great place to honeymoon. Thanks for ordering my book. It went into the mail today, so look for it in a few days. Yes, I do live in the Atlanta area.

Most people take a southern route from Dublin to Shannon and spend much of their time in County Kerry in the southwest where there is lots of great scenery and things to do. But what I would suggest is that you read my book and decide where your interests are. Then plot out a tentative route that encompasses what you want to see and do.

Since you want to "wing it" in Ireland I would suggest making your reservations for Dublin (a must!) and for your last night near Shannon Airport. Then you can fill in the blanks as you go. The B&B owners will call ahead for you and reserve another B&B for you if you know where you want to end up that day. It is rather nice knowing that a room is awaiting you at the end of a long day. You should also consider spending a couple of days in each area and make it your "home base" for doing day trips from. This is a much more relaxing way to travel rather than searching every day for a new lodging. Anyway, my book will give you the inside scoop on what you need to know about traveling to Ireland. Then you can come back to the forum with whatever other questions you have.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you again - and have fun planning your trip!

Happy travels,

Home Base

I agree with the home base idea. On my first trip I only stayed one night in each place and was all tuckered out from the driving. Learned my lesson that time and am now planing my 4th trip for 2002!! Michelle's advise is right on the money!
