Hi! I'm planning a trip to Ireland in October for 14 nights. We're debating whether to go with a travel agent's package deal with B&B vouchers or to do it ourselves. Concerns include choices of B&B, price, if DIY, carrying so much cash as many places don't take credit cards, having reservations planned or taking a chance, car rentals, etc.
We're planning to fly into Shannon and go clockwise around spending one or two nights each time we stop. We'll spend our last days & nights visiting the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula.
Advice, suggestions, warnings, please!!
