10-Day Trip to Ireland

Jump to last reply

My family and I (2 adults and 2 teens) are going to Ireland in July for a total of 10 days/9 nights. We have never been. We are flying into Dublin and will be there for 3 nights. This is already pretty much set. We are really confused about where we should go after Dublin. We would like to see Dingle, Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of Mohr and maybe one of the Aran Islands. We love small, out-of-the-way places and enjoy moderate walking/hiking, nothing too strenuous.

I know that people ask for advice all the time and we probably could put together an itinerary based on previous postings, but we are really overwhelmed by all the information that is out there. FYI, we are renting a car when we leave Dublin on Friday morning and will be flying home out of Dublin the following Thursday morning. We need to plan for six nights, although the last night of our trip probably will have to be spent fairly close the Dublin airport.

What we are looking for is where we should stop for the night or maybe two or more nights (to use as a base) that could provide a good glimpse of traditional Irish life and places to stop along the way. We are mainly interested in historic sights and gorgeous scenery.

Thank you.
