Argh! I know I'm going to get lost or possibly run over a poor sheep! Help!

OK, I have read postings on here until my eyes have watered in pain. So here, with all the help from the fodorites is what I plan on doing. Please help me decide if I am reasonable (well, not ME, but my itinerary....I already know that I'm not reasonable!)

Just a note...I'm 29, female, and going to Ireland solo the first two weeks in October. I'm staying in London for four nights to detox, THEN...

-Land in Shannon
-Drive to Doolin for one evening (want short drive, as this will be first time behind the wheel on right side of car. Will probably lose hubcap on this leg). Listen to music, drink a vat of guinness.

-Drive to Galway. Three nights.

-Drive to Dingle via ferry that goes from Killimer to Tarbert (read about this on this forum, but still need to figure out how this all works). Stay 3 nights.

-Drive to Killarney, Stay 2 nights

-Drive to somewhere near Shannon airport and stay for the night. (any suggestions on a town?) Weep all night that I'm leaving Ireland.

As you can see, I don't want to drive too much. I am rather sure I will love Ireland, and will go back and do the east, south, etc. I just want to go and "hang out" and drive wherever I decide to get lost. I would love any suggestions on which roads to take from point to point. I do have the Michelin motoring atlas of Ireland, but it's giving me a mild panic attack. I can read maps fine, usually, but I'm a little uncertain exactly which of the little roads would be the best to take. Help me not kill myself, or innocent farm animals, on the roads...thanks!
