We will be flying into Dublin on an overnight flight from Chicago. My mother-in-law (84 years young!) will be with us,
We plan only one night in Dublin, then we'll head to the southwest for the rest of our Irish vist. We will be renting a car to head for the west, but aren't sure if we need it that first day. (Any suggestions here would be most appreciated!) Also, we'd really like to find a place to stay with early check-in, where Mom could get some rest and adjust to the time change. We would like to do a bit of sight-seeing in the city--probably Trinity College Library and one of the cathedrals (possibly Guiness as well). Would it be better to stay near airport, in the city or somewhere in-between. Also, does anyone know of a place that offers early check-in?
