Just a quick run down of what I would do.
get out of Dublin ASAP, good place to go on the
but not that great to see,
I would head down through the Wicklow Mountains to Glendelough, a fantastic site of an old monastery, there are some lovely villages and twisty roads on the way down, there will also be loads of bikers around.
I'd then head down to Kilkenny, which is a lovely town/city.
head into to Tipperary, where you have to see the Rock of Cashel.
Then down to the Ring Kerry, which is fantastic,
For Music I'd say Clare and Galway are your best places, but try to stay away from the tourist spots and find some impromptu sessions which are generally brilliant. (the monks in Thurles, Co Tipperary on a Wedn night)
You should definitely go to the West Coast as previously said, the Burren in Clare is great and Galway is by far the best city in Ireland.
In general I'd stay out of the cities (except Galway and Kilkenny). Ask the locals, publicans, B&B owners, shop keepers, the old man on the street and they will all set you right.
I might be around Tipp if you fancy a pint.
try posting on www.biker.ie
I'm sure the lads will look after you
You will have a ball enjoy.
