My BF and I will be flying in to Dublin. We arrive later in the evening and then have 4 full days to tour, plus all day on the 5th day until we leave for the airport for an 8pm flight to Manchester
Does it make sense to make Dublin our home base? We want to see as much possible. We like everything, though don't feel the need to shop a lot (me maybe a little..I would like to pick up a few china tea cups). We would like to experience good pubs, castles, scenery, irish whisky. Walking for us is no problem.
We want to hit all the "must sees". Also, my BF's bday will be day 2 of when we are there, so I would like to do or see something special on that day and maybe even splurge to stay somewhere really nice as a surprise.
If we dont have to have a car, that would be ideal.
