In May of this year my cousin and I took a driving tour of Ireland.  We flew into Shannon airport  and rented a car to drive around the south coast of Ireland.  We ended our trip in Dublin .  

The whole trip was two weeks and it was a very interesting trip.  We had both rainy and sunny weather. One of the challenges was driving on the opposite side of the road.  I managed to get by for two weeks with only a few minor problems.  

We stayed at a variety of B&B's along the way that were really nice.  We had lots of help from Kem at in planning our route. .  She knew what B&B's were really nice and she also gave us great driving directions.   The guidebooks we took with us were Rick Steves-Ireland and the Eye Witness guide for Ireland and both came in handy. .
