7 night itinerary - Dublin to Galway need help

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to Ireland in August. We are both in our 40's and want to soak in as much culture as we can. We are also foodie types - though looking for authenticity vs. fine dining. We will rent a car and the hubby will do the driving.

Sadly we only have 7 nights. We are flying into Dublin and out of Shannon. And I am struggling a bit with our itinerary.
Here is what I have so far and am hoping for some feedback:

Arrive Dublin - stay 2 nights
Drive from Dublin to Kinsale with stop along the way in Kilkenny to break up the drive.
Stay 2 nights in Kinsale
Drive from Kinsale to Dingle (not sure best place to explore along the way - is it terrible to not do the Ring of Kerry?) stay 1 night in Dingle
Drive Dingle to Galway - stay 2 nights in Galway

Is this a doable itinerary without being exhausted? Is Dingle worth spending the night? Are there other charming villages we should stay instead? Any help would be much appreciated.
