Well it's a place that your'll prob never forget-it'll be an experience-you've got one life. I bet if you did a survey more people would have gone to portugal than istanbul-eh! Don't know about you but i like to be a bit different and not do all the same things other people do (obviously there are exceptions.)

First of all what time of the year will you be in Ireland,if its winter dont go to Portagal as it will also be freezing as the winter weather for Europe this year "the say" is going to be bad!!!!!!!,so you win that one!
You loss the next one as dont fly to Instanbul from Dublin only fly Portugal!!!!!!!!!!!
After the recption keep them on the hard stuff!!,get a taxi and go to Airport and get them on a plane as they wont know what year it is never mind where their going and wake them up in Instanbul.
What about 5days each place if organised could be flight to Portagal then flight to Instanbul and flight back to Ireland/London!!
Have a great time wherever you go and enjoy your travels.
