16 nights Ireland by bus/train

Jump to last reply

My husband and I arrive in Dublin Sept 1 and fly home from Shannon Sept 17th. My husband drives for a living so while on vacation would prefer not to drive...just sight see and relax.
I have been to Ireland 5 times (cuz I love it so much!!) and have used public transportation. This is my husbands first trip.
First of all..is one 'Jet Lagged day' in Dublin worth the visit as next morning would bus to Galway. We will be arriving from Cananda at 7:25 am so will be tired....cant sleep on the plane. We arent big museum people and some are closed on Sundays.
ROUGH plan so far is

2 nights Galway (one day for Burren bus tour

1-2 nights Inishmore (is 2 nights too many ?
How far ahead would you book rooms on the island...If we get to Ireland and the weather is cold/windy/rainy those days ..is it worth the trip to Inishmore.?

3 nights Killarney for National Park...we love to walk and do Deros tour through lakes and the Gap

5 nights in Dingle which we have already booked.(Sept 10-15) Lots to do there. We want to walk the great Blasket Island and there is a trad festival on while we are there

1-2 nights at either or Adare/Ennis before we fly home from Shannon

This leaves us 2-3 nights left. I wonder about staying an extra night or 2 in Clare...possibly Doolin or Kinvara before arriving in Killarney

We could instead go from dublin to kilkenny to kinsale then on to Killarney by way of Cork
instead of Galway area but cant do both.....and I am drawn to Inishmore...have been to Inisheer only.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I want to show my husband so much but cant see it all. Counting the days!!!

thanks everyone
