My wife, two sons and I are going to Ireland for a week during Christmastime. What should we expect as far as weather and accommodations? Also, what is the music scene like in Dublin and Galway? We're very excited about this trip. My great-father and his entire family moved to America in the 1850's from Galway and never made it back. I would love to meet up with some Irish bass brothers and sisters. Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.
