Where to stay in Ireland?
I’m going to be in Ireland in March, and I’m looking for a location to spend 3 nights, from where we can take comfortable day trips, and return evenings for the craic. I’m generally looking in the area along the south bank of the Shannon - North County Kerry or West County Limerick. I’m looking for a friendly town (aren’t they all?) with good pubs/sessions, and large enough to have a choice of places to go, but not large enough to be "touristy". I will be visiting with 4 couples, and we’re looking for a guesthouse or hotel that could accomodate all of us, if possible. We’re looking for Sat, Sun and Mon nights, March 19-21.
Can anyone suggest a town, or even an actual guesthouse/hotel? I know this probably isn’t the proper forum for this request, but you all are the only resource I have at the moment.
