To Germany from Ireland, by car... I guess it will take around four days??? Is that an option?

Maybe pick something more close, like Netherlands, Belgium - or Spain? I know there is ferries from Portsmouth to Bilbao - which is a cool city with lovely food, beaches nearby and a nice region to explore...

we have been to Spain many times, also Bilbao. Perhaps Netherlands or Belgium. We would probably be sailing into France anyway and going from there. thanks

The closer areas in Germany to France and Belgium would be an option.

e.g. Rhineland-Palatinate

or the Black Forest
