Can you help me plan two weeks in September, please?

Jump to last reply

We are making our first trip to Ireland this September, flying in and out of Dublin due to points availability. Our plan is to pick up a car, head out, and leave 2 or 3 nights for Dublin at the end. I would really appreciate any help with planning, as I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the possibilities. We have 15 days, including the morning we arrive.

We're interested in ruins, history, amazing scenery, some hiking and/or cycling, pretty villages, charming people, and romantic castles. We have absolutely no desire to see the countryside whizzing by from the car window, preferring to while away an afternoon or two or three at a pub or cafe.

Since this is our first trip to Ireland, we'd like to see as many of the "money shots" as possible while enjoying an easy pace. I've identified as a preliminary list Cliffs of Moher, Burren, Dingle, Ring of Kerry, Cashel, Glendalough, Connemara, Killarney, possibly Arran. No interest in Blarney or Limerick.

We prefer to spend 2 or more nights in a base, rather than moving every morning. This is where I'm really stumped - where to stay (Kenmare sounds charming) and how long in each place.

Also, for $200 I can change our tickets to add another couple of days if we're seriously short of time. Of course, then I might have to add Belfast and Carrickfergus, which I'd love to see.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
