Adare Manor - a hotel (pictured above) made famous throughout the Country. From there you can drive all around the coast, and see the many towns and wonders (like the Cliffs of Moher) and have a well-rounded experience. After which, you can hop the train or bus to Dublin and spend a couple of days (Trinity College old library and the Guinness Factory are highly recommended stops, as is Fade Street Social and Green Hen for dinner).
- Adare Manor: Huge rooms, sweeping grounds, golf course, falconry-archery-horses. This is fantasy stuff, and it was an incredible place to stay.
- Dublin: Stayed at the Merrion and Four Seasons, but the former is very centrally located. This is a walking City, and there are many good hotels to choose from, pubs every where you look and a booming food scene. Pack your bags!
