    First time in Ireland, only have 72 hours. My husband and I are celebrating 20 year anniversary with a long weekend. I would love to do a day trip but I am worried that it is too much with the time change from U.S. and such a short amount of time. Any private tour recommendations of Dublin and/or day trips from Dublin?

    There are day trips that you can take if you don’t want to rent a car and drive yourself. A couple of ideas:

    - Cliffs of Moher, Burren and Galway- full day
    - Powerscourt House and Gardens, Wicklow and Glendalough- I think half day.

    And of course there is plenty to see in Dublin itself.

    As they say, “Let’s have have a pint on that.”

    Best regards.

    We really liked Newgrange/Bru na Boinne, which is a half-day trip north of Dublin.
    Kilmainhaim Gaol in Dublin is well recommended too. Must sign up for a tour time for the Gaol.

    Just enjoy Dublin. Plenty of things to do there.

    Trips abroad do not need to like an episode of the Amazing Race.

    But if you feel the need, the Cliffs of Mohr is what I would do. No matter what the weather - it is a sight to behold.

    I rather like the hop on/hop off bus tours. When you get to a site you want to spend some time at, you are not limited and can just grab the next bus when it comes by to continue your tour. It is Dublin after all and everything is in English. Don't need a tour guide unless you want one.

    If you stay in town, we loved the archeological museum (free). Also popped into trinity college and leaked temple bar area.

    One bit of advice:
    Do not have a pint just before getting on the H/O, H/O bus.
    You may fall asleep and miss the whole round... B/T, D/T.
