My husband and I will be in Dublin for a work trip in September. We're planning on going to someplace else in Ireland for 4 days after the conference (leave Dublin on a Wednesday afternoon, and fly out of either Shannon or Dublin to the US Sunday). We could use help deciding where to go. We can either rent a car or do public transit. We'd like to see the "real" Ireland - scenic landscapes, charming towns, pubs, etc. We don't necessarily want to be in a big city since we'll spend the first part of our trip in Dublin.
Thanks for any input you can give me!
