If you're renting a car in Ireland, make sure you get car insurance. The best package you can possibly get. Between the roads, the cars, and the drivers (drunken bastards, the lot, I swear), everyone gets into fender benders in Ireland, and occasionally worse (just ask Matthew Broderick). Even with the insurance, it's insanely expensive if you're in an accident, but you don't want to be negotiating repair costs from the US without coverage, especially when the bastards have your credit card number.
Thank you, Denicos.
Go to haufbrauhouse in Munich, classic. Lots of fun but no need for more than 2-3 days here, Switzerland or the Austrian alps are better.
Switzerland is expensive but places like Lucerne are beautiful, trains are insanely easy and ALWAYS on time. Swissrail.com I believe, or just google it. If you have time go to interlaken or even over to vevey, Lausanne, montreaux area on lake Geneva, this spot is amazing.
Tuscany is amazing, hope you have picked out a nice cottage on a vinard, I can recommend a great tour if you would like.
I looked up train times from Munich to Cinque Terre and it was like 11 hours. Is this right? Not sure I want to spend an entire day on transportation if I can help it. Driving directions only had it at a little more than 5 hours.
Hoffbrauhouse in Munich has become sort of a tourist trap, there are better beer halls in Munich. Go in the Hoffbrauhouse to look around, it has a lot of history. While you are in there, make sure you look up at the Bavarian flags painted on the ceiling, they are arranged in an interesting manner that tells you some good history. Then go to one of the other beer halls for drinking and food, the food is wonderful and I loved the atmosphere and friendliness of the people in Munich.
AustrianSpartan (or someone who may know about Klagenfurt), any suggestions for a bar to watch the euro final? I am spectating the triathlon that day, so ideal would be near the finish. I saw that there is a university near there, seems like a good place to look?

If your car breaks down, don't stop at a stranger's house to ask for help - he might drug you and sew your mouth to your wife's anus.

Well thats a really random and disturbing bump. Nice work!
Is that where Hitler was born?
Any suggestions for parking near Marienplatz in Munich? Have read there are 20€/day garages (same price as we'd pay to use the U/S-bahns. Anyone have any experience with parking in the city?
K-Furt Uni is awful. But I know this has already passed, but there's a nice Irish bar right by the center that is a favorite. Did you enjoy the area overall?
As for Munich, I've never actually driven in Munich, but I've the found the city to be extremely walkable and great public transportation. Park at your hotel and take the metro in. That entire area is a delightful area to walk around and the Munich U-Bahn is great.
These are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others.
Hotel doesn't have access to the U-Bahn so we'd have to do some sort of park n ride. With the timing we have we will likely just park in a garage for the day. There are five of us so the transport pass is about the same price as parking would be, especially since the city is walkable.
The Klagenfurt area was nice. Our triathletes ended up finishing during the Euro final so we didn't get to see much of that. Found a place right on the course that was showing it outside (Bar Italia) so that was nice. Went over to Villach the day of the race. Was Sunday so pretty much everything was closed, but we hit up the brewery and was fantastic. Probably the best meal we've had on the trip. Thanks for all the help!
