If you go to Paris, you can go to Euro Disney?

Depending on budget you could do both. 

I love Paris! It’s a city that moves me. We married there and I discover new things every visit. If neither of you have been discovering it together will be an adventure. On a side note France has other cities worth visiting if you have time.

Definitely do both, the flight between Ireland and Paris will be short and inexpensive so it won’t really add much cost to split the trip and as the other poster mentioned you could do a day or two in Disneyland Paris.

I think i would go to Ireland its interesting, i personally dont like Paris at all, too crowded ,overrated and not so clean. i feel like there are others European cities (or cities in france)that are better or more beautiful 🙂 but if you really love the Paris Disneyland then fly from ireland to Paris so you can have both!

You’ve  been to Ireland, so I vote Paris! It is magical and so romantic, don’t listen to the haters lol. Disney world doesn’t sound very relaxing or romantic to me..

If you are like me who loves to go to new places every single time. I’d do Paris just becase you have been to Ireland before. Besides you can take a night of and take a train to Bordeaux and have some wine tasting. And visit the French Riviera ( seriously stunning). 

Obsiously if you have time go to both.

I would do both, if you have the time available. Flights within Europe usually are reasonably priced.

I would personally choose Ireland since I’ve soent s lot of time in the uk and it’s very similar, however I think your best bet is to play it safe for the honeymoon and plan a vacation to Europe say on an anniversary. You don’t want there to be any tension with your man for a once in a lifetime thing and make any bad memories on your honeymoon.

I would vote Paris because it seems like a great compromise – you get to see a new city, and you could combine it with a few days at EuroDisney.

I’m told that Vaux le vicomte is a beautiful daytrip.

I loooooooooooooooove to travel, so I empathize with you! If you’re always wanted to see Paris, go for it!

That said, I will admit that I had always wanted to visit Paris, and finally went last month. It wasn’t exactly what I had been dreaming! For example, the line to get into Notre Dame stretched across the whole plaza in front of the church, and inside, it was so crowded that there was absolutely zero sense of spirituality. Similarly, there were long lines and huge crowds in Saint Chapelle, the Louvre, the Orsay Museum, the Rodin Museum, Arc de Triumphe, etc. And these lines were despite the fact that  we had bought the Paris Museum Pass (covers most sights and allows you to skip ticket lines, but not security lines).

The Eiffel tower was the worst: the lines were hideously long (even though we had booked tickets in advance, you still have to go through security lines and then lines for multiple elevators to go up and down to different levels). We had been told to book our tickets far in advance (because apparently tickets to the top can sell out), but the day we chose ended up being a grey, rainy day (and of course, there was no ability to refund or exchange the tickets for a better day). So, it was crowded, hectic, cold, and rainy, with dull grey views over the city! Not exactly the romantic Eiffel experience that I had been imagining!

All that said, we did have some great experiences in Paris. I loved the Orsay museum and the Louvre, despite the crowds. And we had some excellent food (and amazing hot chocolate at Angelina’s). And our hotel had a rooftop deck with gorgeous views of the Eiffel tower at sunset.

Depending on how much time you have for your honeymoon, you might consider spending a few days in Paris, and then getting out of the city and visiting somewhere less crowded for a while (such as the romantic Loire Valley, with its castles and wineries).
