We will be visiting Ireland for our first time this coming June, 2012. Unfortunately, we only have 3 days. We arrive in Dublin the night of June 19th, then we thought we would drive over to Galway and also visit Dingle. Other suggestions? We love nature and the outdoor activities, along with good beer and music. :)
Suggestions on good places to stay?

thank you!

I just checked lowcostholidays and using their hotel only option there are some good deals at present for the Galway area. To the west is Conemara which is very open and great in sunny weather but not when wet. Weather can make or ruin a holiday in Ireland.

Go for a walking tour:

Irish tourist sites will tell you what is worth seeing in any areas you plan on visiting. Bars you will find just by driving around. The Irish are a friendly lot.
