My husband and I are planning an 8 day trip to Ireland for our first wedding anniversary in June of 2019. We will be flying in and out of Dublin and will be renting a car. We would like to see as much as possible, focusing more on scenery than big cities. We are planning to stay at B&B's along the way.
We have never been to Ireland so we don't have much knowledge to go on!
We are both young and active and realize that in order to see the most we will be very busy... we are okay with that.
I would like some constructive feedback on our first initial "itinerary". I know it is extremely ambitious... I am having trouble picking and choosing!!
