I am planning a trip to Ireland in Oct or Nov (how is the weatherfor driving as I have been to England and driven in snow) I need advise on air/fly/drive packages please. We would like to stay for 2 weeks and use B&B and maybe one stay at a castle. I also would like to go to Northern Ireland from the south of Ireland with the car that we hire. Can ya'll advise me on the time of year, the crowds, the weahter, etc. I havent been to Ireland in 20 yrs and I only went to Dublin. Thank you all.
