I'm not even sure where to start. We are tentatively planning to go to Ireland mid April for about a week. I think Raleigh Durham airport flies into Dublin. We will rent a car and wander. We are mostly interested in the scenic areas, not so much cities or shopping. I have a tendency to want to see everything! All the online info is either pretty contradictory or want to steer me to cities. For somebody who drives 120 miles or so each way for a day trip pretty regularly, driving isn't a problem. Suggestions for cliffs, water, national parks, good hiking, etc? I'll take any advice on itinerary too, I'm not entirely sure of driving distances between the most gorgeous places. I'm sadly ignorant about Ireland and would love to fix that.
I can easily drive to Washington DC if that gives us a better airport to fly into and the week can be a bit longer if need be. I just don't know where to start.
I'm sorry if this is vague, as I get some ideas I'll be able to pin things down better.
