3 nights in Connemara or Dingle?

Jump to last reply

My itinerary will include both Clifden and Dingle. Right now I'm assuming 2 nights in Clifden and 3 nights in Dingle, but when I look at all there is to do in Connemara, I wonder if I should switch this. Both stays will have a fairly long drive leading up to the first night in each town. The question is: do you think it would be better to have 2 full days on site to see Connemara and 1 full day for Dingle, or the other way around? Obviously, there is also some time during the drive toward each town to take in area sights before arriving at the B&B. What do you think?

Also, I'm currently thinking of 1 overnight between Clifden and Dingle in Doolin, but now I'm worried that town will be overrun with tourists and hence overcrowded and no fun. Is there a sleepier village (perhaps Lisdoonvarna?) that might offer a more pleasant evening and still be close enough to the Cliffs for a quick visit in the afternoon or morning? If there are Doolin lovers out there, I'm happy to hear from them, too. Thanks.
