6 Nights in Ireland during Oct Bank Holiday - which itinerary is best?

Do either of these 6-night itineraries look good for first-timers touring Ireland over the October bank holiday weekend? Four of us are flying into Dublin from Amsterdam at 11:00 am on Thursday morning and then our flight back to the U.S. departs from Dublin at noon the following Wednesday. Since our flight into Ireland is only 1.5 hours in length, I'm thinking it would be a good idea to rent a car from the airport and head somewhere different; then we can spend 2 nights in Dublin at the end of our journey.

We're interested in pubs, culture, charming towns, good food, maybe a castle tour or manor house garden, scenery (but we're not planning on long hikes in national parks), relaxation...

Here's what I've come up with:

Option 1
Thurs.: Arrive Dublin airport 11:00, rent car and drive to Kilkenny
Fri: Kilkenny to Kinsale... or Dungarvan, (viewing Rock of Cashel or Blarney Castle along the way)
Sat: Kinsale (or Dungarvan) to Killarney
Sun: Killarney
Mon: Killarney to Dublin, (viewing Bunratty Castle, Adare, Limerick along the way)
Tues: Dublin
Wed: Fly Home

Option 2
Thurs.: Arrive Dublin airport 11:00, rent car and drive to Galway
Fri.: Explore south of Galway: Kinvarra, Doolin, Lisdoonvarna (maybe spend the night in Lisdoonvarna .......or head back to Galway for the evening)
Sat: Explore north of Galway: Clifden, Kylemore Abbey & Gardens, Leenane, Westport
........spending the night somewhere in the area
Sun: Head back to Dublin, spending the night somewhere along the way
Mon: Dublin
Tues: Dublin
Wed: Fly Home

Or, if these are too ambitious, I suppose we could skip the west coast entirely and spend our time around Dublin & Kilkenny, visiting Mount Usher Gardens (or Powerscourt), Malahide, Glendalough... It looks like Kilkenny has both Savour Kilkenny and Rockfall music festival going on during that time (I have no idea if that if means stay away because it will be crazy crowded; or if it's something not to be missed).

Since there are 4 of us and it's a holiday weekend, I think I need to book our accommodations in advance. What do you guys think? Any suggestions? Do any of these options sound good? Any advice is sincerely appreciated! Thank you!!
