Hi, my girlfriend and I are planning on a trip to Morocco and are coming from hawaii, so I am planning on stopping in Dublin for a few days then maybe taking a ferry or other transportation to get to Uk and stay in London then take a discount airline to Marrakech, and go to merzouga for a while and anything else anyone recommends in Morocco. I want to take a ferry from Morocco to Spain and take a train to Barcelona. From Barcelona I want to take a train to Paris from there return home to hawaii.
I have never been to Europe or Morocco, and would appreciate any help with the transportation where to find the transportation and where to catch the ferries and what not, actually any advice about what to do in the places and how to get threre at all will help, thanks so much, as I am a student I would like to keep costs as low as possible. Thanks so much for your help!

if you wanted the easiest route, if you fly into dublin, catch the ferry from dublin to holyhead (north wales, and can cost from £15 upwards for a single ticket) and then a train to liverpool. You can get cheap airfares from there, or from manchester which is just another 30 mins by train. Morocco is extremely diverse to the rest of Europe in its cultural environment. if you wanted to see more of Europe i would definately recommend barcelona. But once your in the UK i would check out the cheap airfares as it may be more convenient and cheaper than going by train. This may even mean leaving the UK flying back to the UK then flying off to another destination. My mate went backpacking round morocco for 4 weeks, so it depends on your time constraints as how much of the country you want to see. Same with your other destinations such as spain too. However if you wanted to go by ferry from morocco to spain this is also possible.

Thanks for your help I am probably going to try and fit it all in about 3 and a half to 4 weeks, is this possible?

Dublin, London, Barcelona, Paris and Marrakech (and other sites) in 4 weeks looks fine to me. Besides Dublin, you'll need a good amount of days to visit the other cities on your itinerary.
