My husband and I are going to Ireland on a barge trip for 7 days in August. We will have a few days to spend before the trip and maybe one or two in Dublin after. We are flying from Chicago to London, then Ireland. HELP, where should we go? We have never been. We need to be in Dublin to catch our trip, but think we would like to see the western side first. Any suggestions would be well taken. We are foodies and would love to go to the pubs. Thank you in advance for your help. We are also looking for places to stay once back in Dublin. Restaurants, B&B's Pubs???? We need our fellow chowhound helpers.
