County Kerry is the place to go. Spectacular scenery.

Would recommend northern Ireland too as underrated.

Personally not too fond of Dublin. Belfast is better.

Other than the historic sector, try and avoid Dublin. Belfast is mildly entertaining, but it can be done in a day. There is some absolutely beautiful scenery, as the previous poster said, in County Kerry.

Have you planned how you're going to get from place to place in Ireland? Trains are limited, there are few if any regional flights and car hire is often expensive.

I recommend Derry city for the history and shopping, and The Mournes in Co Down if you like mountains/hiking.

Galway is also pretty good.

If you can, bring a car with you. Public transport is pretty rubbish in Ireland.

Derry for the shopping? :lol: For the history, yeah.

Donegal for the scenery, OP, it's just bloody stunning. :yep:

I live in Armagh 😂 There's definitely loads of places to go in Northern Ireland but I'd definitely recommend Galway and West Port!

Just so we can scale the recommendations: how are you going to get around? Hiring a car or public transport?

How long do you have for your trip?

And what places are you already considering?

And to echo the posts above, your itinerary should include Northern Ireland and Donegal (which is in the north of Ireland, but not Northern Ireland...

Galway is great, you can easily get there by train from Dublin in 2.5 hrs, plenty of accommodation but book early.

Dublin ....expensive etc but there are some good attractions.....I would avoid the Guinness brewery....too much marketing.

Belfast is worth a visit and is accessible by train.

There are plenty of buses in Ireland and you can get to the most remote parts by public transport.
