We're going to Ireland really soon and will be there for about 10 days.
We'll initially be staying just west of Dublin (the BF is attending a Large Technical Conference), then IN Dublin, then in a castle, then in a couple of different B&Bs.
We are renting a car. Ireland appears to be smaller than New Jersey, so I'm not too daunted. Still, different country, different side of the road - it's all a bit intimidating. But we're both proficient drivers of standard transmissions, which hopefully means our worst wounds will be the bruising on our right hands from smackin' them into the window when attempting to shift.
I might take a day trip up to Belfast to research my ancestry. If my cousin ever delivers the goods on what I'm supposed to be looking up to my Dad so he can pass it along to me.
Anyway, suggestions? Recommendations? Disrecommendations? OH YOU MUST ideas?

(a) Yeah, I kinda figured. But when you live in America, with the distances we face going to the next state over, the idea that you could possibly get across another country in 2-3 hours is pretty amazing.
(b) It does overlap those dates, but goes beyond. I would be delighted to see ya. You can catch me via email at kjc, upon the domain known as postdiluvian dot org, as I do not think I have an email address for you.
(c) Damn! You want me to find you another one? It won't be New Mexican, of course. Actually, is there any particular American junk that you want?
(d) I'll dig them up. The BF has mostly finalized our itinerary, but hasn't yet shared the details. It mostly centers on Dublin, Sligo, the Dingle Peninsula, and possibly Galway, with a lot of messing about in between. Apparently the south is booked solid, it being tourist season and all.
