My wife has never crossed the ocean and we've planned a trip to the UK and Ireland in a few months. At the moment the plan is to fly into London and stay there a few days, hop a flight to Shannon, Ireland and we have 6 days until we end in Dublin, then another flight to Edinburgh, Scotland for 5-6 days. Even with all the reading and researching online I still like hearing from people that have been there, live there and what to do and see. We aren't really touristy people, we enjoy more of the 'where the locals go' scene. If anyone has or knows of any must go to eating spots or places most tourists don't go or don't know about I'd love to hear any and all comments. We're going to have 17 non-travel days. Renting a car in Ireland and Scotland to just be able to do and go wherever. I appreciate any info and tips.
