We spent our 2004 Christmas vacation in Ireland and had an unforgettable experience. What a magical country! We flew into Dublin then hopped a bus for Belfast. We spent 3 days in Northern Ireland, visiting the Ulster Museum/Gallery and taking a bus tour up to Bushmills and Giant's Causeway. Our final night in Belfast we went and watched the Belfast Giants hockey club play. (Yes, we're Canadian!) Next day we took the bus back to Dublin and joined up with an 8 day bus tour, that covered many of the popular destinations. It also gave my husband a change to get used to driving on the other side of the road, albeit as a passenger. Upon completion of the bus tour we picked up a rental car and headed to Delvin in Westmeath, where we rented a holiday home for a week. Delvin was relatively central to the island and we made day trips to explore other places. We crammed a lot into our 3 weeks, but it was the best Christmas ever. It even snowed for Christmas! We spent our last 2 days in Dublin visiting Jameson's distillery, the Writers Museum, the National Gallery and Kilmainham Gaol. Our kids were 14 and 12 at the time and they enjoyed it too. My husband and I are planning to make a return trip in the spring of 2011.
