Ireland: Dublin to Shannon Road Trip - Suggestions?

Kuisine | Aug 25, 2006 03:43 PM

Hi All,

My boyfriend and I are making our first trip to England and Ireland in a couple weeks. We're spending 4 days in London, but there look to be a number of threads and a lot of reading I can do on London suggestions already on the board :) I'll probably ask questions after reading up though!

However, what I didn't see initially was much information on Ireland, especially outside Dublin.

Our itinerary is as follows:

Dublin - 2 nights
Either Kilkenny for early lunch or Waterford for late lunch/early dinner (any thoughts here?)
Kinsale - 1 night
Kenmare - 2 nights
Dingle - 1 night
Shannon - 1 night

Any suggestions for us in these towns or on the roads between them? I'd love to hear about them :) We're more interested in foods that we can't get at home or are just done better (I've heard the salmon is not to be missed?).

So you get an idea of what we're used to, we're both basically from Los Angeles, but we just moved back after living in San Francisco for 3 years.

Looking forward to more budget/everyday meals than "fine dining" though we're open to suggestions there too!
