All the information I can find on Ireland is about "things" to see - I want to meet the people and experience the culture. How can I do that best in 8 days? Stay in 1 spot perhaps, but which one???
Rent a house or room in a village that you can use as a base. I would suggest the mid-west, like Mayo, one of my favoriate spots. It is within an hour or two of lots of things. Are u going with someone? If so even 2 cost about 100 euro a day I notice there is a home for 600 euro a week in Ballintubber Abbey and saw the pictures (wow). I bet you would be beside the family who would be adopting you and showing you around -no better way to experience the culture.Westport area lots of traditional music and culture Dublin a day train trip. I suggest the inquiry. Beautiful area. Friendly people and open community! Good luck.
