Birr to Cork on 4-night driving tour

Jump to last reply

Hello,

We've refined our plans since my last posts. Here's the latest for context. Questions follow.

Early June, 3 adults (two older, one younger) drive in rental car from Dublin to Birr, stopping at Hill of Tara for long visit on the way, spending the night at Dooly's (thanks seedee).

From Birr, we head to Buree or thereabouts for one night.

Next stop Cork for two nights, using it as a base for at least one day driving/exploring.

We're interested in landscapes, old places and working/real places, and are hoping to get a taste of the waterfront, etc. in the Cork part of the visit. We also have a musician in the group, so places with open mics or live music are a plus. The musician is also extremely knowledgeable about Irish history, and we all are interested in that, from Celts and before, as well as the last century, Georgian castles not so much.

We'll be flying out of Cork to Paris the morning of our fifth day.

Recommendations for:
stopover after Birr on way to Cork
place to stay in Cork and venues with music, etc.
coastal, waterfront stops for day trips

Some of you have already answered some of these and I thank you in advance and apologize for any repetition, but I wanted to gather the entire question in one place.

Phyllis
