Castles and Manors in Ireland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be spending 14 days during our first and maybe last trip to Ireland in September 2014. He has a definite limit on the number of castle/manor interiors he will tour. I think 8 would be his outside limit in 14 days. We will have 3 nights in Dublin, then rent a car. Our itinerary is not yet fixed but we will probably stay south of the M6.

What are the best castles/manor houses/abbeys to visit? Do Bunratty, Muckross, Kylemore Abbey, Kilkenney Castle, Dublin Castle, St. John's Castle, Cahir Castle, and the Rock of Cashel, make your list ? Suggestions for what we can skip would be appreciated. We have visited lots of "great houses" and some ruins in England, so don't need to see just masses of antiques, but are interested in the unique and interesting.
