We will be in Dublin for 5 days in August and would like to do some day trips and see some of the countryside and small towns.
We are staying in the city center close to easy transport for day trips.
We'd like to go to:
Hoath, Dalkey, Newgrange, Malahide Castle, possibly a day trip to Connamara.
We thought about Wiklow Mountain but I don't think real hiking will be an option for this trip.
Can anyone recommend some scenic, historic, non-coastal towns as easy day trips from Dublin?
