What is the best way to travel Ireland independantly? I am trying to help my brother plan his trip to Ireland May 2012. He already purchased tickets and will be traveling with one friend. He is a 21 year old college student seeking economical travel, willing to stay in hostels, and hoping to see many things in Ireland. Any suggestions how/where to start planning. Things to do in ireland? Or look for or not to do/look for? How to find info on Hostels, or travel suggestions? THANKS!
