2 Ireland itineraries - Help me decide

Jump to last reply

Family of 4 heading over to Ireland next August for 10 days (excluding travel days). The last couple of days are tied up with a wedding in Dublin - but the remainder of the trip will be focused on the west. I have developed two draft itineraries - please see below - and I can't decide which I prefer more. I would love input.

Aside - I can predict one piece of feedback - "you are driving too much". Yeah - I get that. But - we do want to try and see a multiple places out west. I would say Kerry and Glalway are the key destinations in my mind.

Thanks
