1st trip to Ireland!

Jump to last reply

Greetings all - we will be spending 2 weeks in Ireland in mid-September, and would appreciate any help on our itinerary. We'll be flying into Shannon, picking up a car, and heading north maybe as far as Galway. Then back south & east through Kerry, Cork, Waterford, etc ending up in Dublin, flying home from Dublin.

My family way back came from a town called Castlecomer, in Kilkenny, so for sure we want to spend a couple days around there. Other than that, I'd appreciate any suggestions on base towns to stay in for a few days at a time. We're interested in seeing the "must-see" sights, like the Ring of Kerry, but also to have time to sit & relax. Your suggestions? Thanks so much!
