Check for the Irish Tourist Board site. Lots of
ideas. Glendalough is probably my favorite area near Dublin. It is an
interesting Irish site which would be within driving distance from Dublin.
It has the ruins of a 6th century monastery in beautiful, quiet, peaceful
valley. Really lovely. You might be able to find a bus tour for 2-3 days.
My really favorite Irish spot is County Clare on the west coast of Ireland.
If you could fly into Shannon, driving around for 3 days would be a real
delight...the Cliffs of Mohr, Doolin, small village with 3 pubs which
feature traditional Irish music, the Burren which is a desolate but
beautiful, glacier-scraped land &you can view the Atlantic from many
Was planning to go back to Doolin &vicinity in July but I slipped a disk in
my back &am still fighting it. Maybe next year.
high desert Oregon...definitely fall here
