  1. Going to Dublin Ireland , to take my daughter to school, leaving the end of August, returning after Labor Day. Not interested in a tour group. Since she will be staying for 4 years and I will be returning home alone, we would like to enjoy this trip alone. Open minded. Any suggsstions! We can stay between 7-10 days.
