I always wanted to ask this and always forgot it, because always when I think about it, I'm not on the computer. :)

I would love to visit Schottland and/or Ireland and I wonder what the best places would be. I don't really care for big cities (do they exist in Schot/Ire hehe) and I prefere landscape and that stuff which these countries are know for anyway. And since I have three kids, I can't afford to go on a big hotel. Also I prefer a more rural stay anyway, a farm or a small inn or such with a local atmosphere instead of sweiming pool, sauna and this stuff.

Any recommendations?

What's that supposed to mean - you better have a good explaination. 'It was a joke' won't be accepted.

You really don't want to come here to Northern Ireland, it's a complete dump. There's nothing interesting to do or see here (alright, we have the giants causeway and the worlds oldest whisky distillery :rolleyes:) You'd very quickly get bored looking at scenery, it's all more or less the same here. I'd vote Scotland - far better scenery, more diverse and dramatic.

North West is good for both Scotland and Rep of Ireland. Lots of mountains, good scenery and away from the big cities.

Would love to go to Ireland or Scotland some day. Have always wanted to.

PS: Say "hi" to the band U2 for me if you see them.

If you're going to go to Ireland, go to the Ring of Kerry. Lovely place. Don't go up North; damn Brits taking our land. Grrr...

I've made you a chart:

Ireland: Bad Weather; nice scenery; pubs.

Wales: Bad weather; nice scenery; castles.

Scotland: Bad weather; nice scenery; slim chance of spotting mystical beast.

Unfortunatey no, I'm far too generous to be a scotsman.
The Scots and Welsh are just as pissed off about the English taking their lands, but they haven't had the balls to fight for in in centuries.
So if you want to see some spunk, Northern Ireland is the best place. I'll start collectiing mine from today, just in case.

We invaded England in 1405. :P

But we're still fighting through political means. Killing Englishmen became old hat years ago. In my experience they just don't understand the damage they've caused, and so don't really deserve to be shot. ;)

I like Ireland. Without it, we would have no band called U2. Who, btw, have started touring in the states. W00t!

Visited Ireland a few years ago while I was staying Scotland. Beautiful place. Broke a piece off of Black Castle and brought it home. Heh, that's probably why there wasn't much left of the castle in the first place. :)
