Did County Clare a few years ago. Good times.

Don't expect the weather to stay good the whole time, though.

Well, the euro has certainly dropped vis-a-vis the US dollar, but I wouldn't call it rock bottom. The euro is still worth substantially more compared to the dollar than it was 8-10 years ago. I was in France a few weeks ago and while prices were a lot more reasonable than a year or two ago, most things there are still somewhat expensive compared to the US.
