I am trying to plan a surprise trip to Ireland for me and my husband in the spring. I have no idea where to begin. Should I fly into Dublin, Belfast etc... This is a dream vacation for. I know he doensn't want to be pinned down with a tourist group. He wants to see the beautiful country side, experience local pubs and talk to the locals. Can someone please provide some guidance on where to start.
Can I suggest the European Capital of Culture for 2005 - Cork. It sounds like it has everything you need in terms of country side and the "Local Experience". Feel free to visit my website for Hotels/Restaurants/taxi's etc (www.citylocal.ie/cities/Cork) or feel free to email me.
