Advice on Multi-family trip to Ireland - rental cars/hired drivers

Jump to last reply

We're headed to Ireland this summer for two weeks with 15 to 20 people from 5 families. We're just getting started, but initial thinking is that our bases will be near the Cork area, Galway , and Donegal. Visiting Dublin first and then heading off from there. Any advice on traveling with a caravan of rented cars versus hiring drivers with mini-buses or vans? Any related difficulties regarding parking/accommodations?

Rough sketch:
Visit Dublin
Head to Cork Area (interested in Kilkenny Castle, Rock of Cashel, perhaps on the way) - Skipping Wicklow, Waterford on this trip. Perhaps visit there on another trip.
Day trips from Cork area
Cliffs of Moher on way to Galway area
Galway
Mayo and Donegal are ancestral areas

Thanks.
