Hello! I just booked roundtrip tickets from Phoenix, Arizona to Dublin for myself, my husband, my parents, and my brother (5 total, all over the ages of 22). My brother and parents have never been out of the country! I've been exploring the forums and doing some research but I'm wondering if anyone has insight. We are traveling Feb4-Feb14. We will arrive early morning Feb 5 and leave early morning Feb 14, which leaves us with about 8 full days, 9 if you include Feb 5 (we plan on seeing some Dublin sights this day after a cat nap!) My question is with this amount of time do you recommend staying in Dublin and doing day trips outside of the city, or should we explore the option of renting a car and doing a road trip? We enjoy pubs, nature, and historical sites. We are open to renting a car and exploring but have also toyed with the idea of staying put in Dublin and taking day trips. Any tips are appreciated!
