I've never been to Ireland and would like to go, spending most of my time in Dingle. What is the tourist season in Dingle? I believe it starts at Easter, but how long does it run? I'm not concerned about the weather (I'm perfectly happy to snuggle up in a pub in the rain and cold) but want to avoid any desolate streets and closed shops, attractions, etc. I would love to be able to listen to good music sessions while there.
Also, can I fit in Dublin? Ideally, I would like to fly into Dublin, spend a couple of days, make it to the West Coast via public transporation, spend the balance of my time in and around Dingle - with a car - and then fly out of Shannon.
I have at least 7 days.
Ideas are appreciated. Thanks.
