My wife found really inexpensive tickets from the US to Belfast so we took the plunge and bought them. That's about as far as our planning goes. We'd like to do a week's driving trip around Northern Ireland and a bit of adjacent Ireland, and we're open to suggestions. We're more interested in small towns and natural settings than in big cities although we'll want to see some of Belfast too. Luxury hotels not needed-- more budget lodgings would be great. Pubs with open sessions would be a bonus. This will be the week of June9-June 16.

Hard to beat the northern and northwestern coasts for beauty, in my opinion. You could drive through the Glens of Antrim, on to the coast, and see many beautiful ruins of famous castles including the stunning Dunluce Castle. The (Giant's) Causeway Coastal Route will take you to most of these.

The Causeway Coastal Route ends in Derry; from there you can drive west into Donegal, ruggedly beautiful. Or south through Tyrone and Fermanagh. The Upper and Lower Lough Erne lake district is one of my favorite places in all Ireland.
