I guess it made our decisions on where to go/what to see that much easier, because there's no way in hell I'm going north of Dublin. We decided we'd pick one half of the island to visit, and the decision has been made for us.

Looks like a whirlwind tour of the southern half of the island. We'll spend nights in Dublin, Galway City, Kilarney, Cork, Kilkenny, and Powerscourt. It will be quite a bit of driving and sort of a Cliff's Notes version of each town, but I think it beats going over there and feeling like we didn't see what we wanted.
