9 nights in SW Ireland assistance

Jump to last reply

This will be my first trip to Ireland, as well as my husband and 24-year-old daughter. I’ve been pouring over quite a lot of the itineraries on this forum in order to help me out…and everyone at home is leaving it up to me.
It would be very helpful, after looking at our trip, if anyone could see if I’m heading in the wrong direction.

I’ll post the entire trip, however the first and last legs are already booked. It’s the middle, Ireland portion, where help would be welcome.

Dates: 5/09/2016 – 22/09/2016

Sept -5 : Overnight from US to Edinburgh (via Amsterdam)
Sept – nights 6th/ 7th/8th, 3 nights in Edinburgh

Sept – 9: Fly from Edinburgh to Shannon. Pickup car.
Hotel booked 1 night in Listowel

This is where I get stuck. We have 9 nights, including the Listowel stay, in Ireland. The last night needs to be close enough to the Cork Airport for our flight to Paris on the 18th.

That said, this is what I have so far:

Night 1: Listowel

Night 2: Kilkenny
Night 3: Kilkenny

Night 4: Killarney

Night 5: Kenmare
Night 6: Kenmare

Night 7: Bantry

Night 8: Kinsale

Night 9: Cork (morning flight out)

We don’t mind driving around, even though new to the left side of the road.
Staying in one place for a couple nights would be better than packing everyday.

Looking to get a feel for this portion of Ireland rather than follow tour buses around.
Love historic sites, towns and food, pubs, walking, taking photos, but not traffic. Plan on visiting the Beara Peninsula instead of the northerly 2.

I originally had 3 nights in Dublin before the flight to Paris, but felt we’d be racing around. Do these locations sound on the right track?
Any insights as to how many nights to allocate where, or different towns, would be wonderful. Thanks!
