11 day itinerary flying in/out of Shannon-specifically the last 3 days

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone,

This is my first time asking a question on the Forum. The forum has been very helpful but I am having trouble with my itinerary. This is a once in a lifetime trip so I want to do as much as I can. I am use to driving long distances so that is not a problem.

I have 11 days in Ireland and will be flying in and out of Shannon. Flying in on May 18 and leaving on May 29.

If you could look at my itinerary and make any suggestions it would be very appreciated.

I think my major problem is the last 2 or 3 days. I don’t know a good route to get back to Shannon.

Day 1: Arrive in Shannon and pick up rental car. Drive to Bunratty Castle and Rock of Cashel. Not sure where to stay maybe Mallow? Any suggestions?

Day 2: Drive to Blarney Castle and Beara Peninsula to drive over Healy Pass. Stay in Kenmare

Day 3: Do Ring of Kerry. Stay in Kenmare again.

Day 4: Muckross House and Abbey and drive around Dingle Peninsula. Drive up to Lisdoonvarna to spend the night. Is there any stops I should make between Dingle and Lisdoonvarna?

Day 5: Visit the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Ailwee Cave, Hike with Shane Connelly, Poulnabrona Dolmen, Dunguaire Banquet. Spend night in Lisdoonvarna again.

Day 6: Drive to Mayo and see Ashford Castle, Cong Abbey, Downpatrick Head, Hanigan Heritage Center. Spend night in Ballina.

I am having trouble from Day 7 to 11. I would really like to see the Great Causeway but if I have to forgo it than that is what I will do.

Day 7: Drive to Great Causeway from Mayo. Spend night in Donegal.

Day 8: In Donegal see Cliffs of Slieve, Glenveagh Castle. Drive to Sligo to spend the night.

Day 9: In Sligo see Glencar Waterfall, Tobernalt Holy Well, Megalithic cemetery, Aughris cliff Walk. Spend night in Sligo again.

Day 10 and 11: Work my way down to Shannon Airport somehow. Need help with this part of the itinerary.

I will take any and all suggestions. Nothing is set in stone except for the airline reservations and rental car.

Thanks everyone.
