OT: Ireland this summer

This mail is very off-topic, note that I've set replies to go directly
to me. On to my questions:

I'm planning to have my summer vacation in Ireland this year but know
nobody who have been there. The plan so far is a couple days in Dublin
and then find some quiet, smaller place to rest, read and draw. This
smaller place needs to have restaurants/pubs very nearby as making
dinner is incompatible with being on vacation and no cars will be used
for transport.

Another, less important plan is to raid local bookstores for books about
Irish-the-language, as in good grammars of Irish, written in English.
I have no idea where such things might be found, but the size of the
town apparently doesn't matter: I found a wonderful bookstore in
Augsburg (Germany) this Easter who had shelves upon shelves of
interesting language-learning material[1] (short on reference grammars

So, anyone have any ideas?

[1] I'm preparing photos and descriptions of what I bought there. You
just can't find stuff like that, for any language, in Norway!
