10 night itinerary Ireland - Help!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 10 night trip to Ireland in June. As we have a huge bucket list of countries to visit, this will likely be our only trip. Our dilemma is whether to definitely include Dublin and fly in and out of Dublin, or concentrate on the west/southwest and fly in and out of Shannon and then how to divide up the trip. We have to go in and out of one airport to get travel coupons from our credit card company.

We love great cities, but generally prefer gorgeous countryside, small villages, etc.

If we fly in to Dublin, does this look like a good plan?

Dublin 2 nights (or is 1 enough just to get a feel?)
Kilkenny 1 night
Kinsale 1 night (Rock of Cashel on the way)
Kenmare 2 nights (leisurely drive through Beara Peninsula, Killarney National Park the next day)
Dingle 2 nights
Doolin 2 nights
Drive directly from Doolin to Dublin Airport

An alternative would be to stay in Dublin 2 nights and drive directly to Kinsale with stops along the way and add a night in Galway, which is a little closer to Dublin airport than Doolin and allows us the possiblity of doing some of the drive towards Connemara.
Another option is first and last night in Dublin, more transportation issues, but closer to the airport the last night.

If we forgo Dublin and go in to Shannon we would spend more time from Kinsale up to Galway and Connemara, would we regret not seeing Dublin?

also, another question is whether Beara, Dingle, Burren will satisfy us and be sufficient and ok to let go of Connemara.

I know, a lot of questions, but there are so many places that look fabulous and with every choice to do something, you have to let something else go. I personally like to get it all, totally unreaslistic, so try my best to get the best itinerary I can!!
