I have no questions (well, yes, I have a ton, but I am hoping they will be answered as we traverse the island!) but want to thank everyone for all of your posts. I've trolled for a while and taken lots of notes from all of you. This is our itinerary: Land in Dublin, hotel reservations for 2 nights, then hit the road and head towards the Dingle area. Will book as we go so as we aren't obligated to be anywhere and can just linger if we find a place we really like. I've looked at B&B availability in the villages we are interested in and there seems to be ample. This will be our first time doing a trip w/o everything pre-planned and am really looking forward to that aspect of it. I will ask this ONE question: anything worthwhile stopping for between Dublin and Limerick? Will post trip report once we are home. Best wishes to all of you as you plan or embark on your trip!
