Connemara, Cliffs of Mohr and Dingle on the Way?(tune of Jingle Bells)

Jump to last reply

Hello! We will be in Ireland from September 11-18th. Flying in and out of Dublin (I know now that Shannon would have made more sense given our itinerary but it's too late, tickets are bought and paid for!)

Here is our itinerary so far:
Fly into Dublin, pick up car and drive to Galway. 2 nights there to see the town and drive around Connemara.

Leave for Kilarney maybe passing through Ennis and using the Killimer - Tarbert car ferry to save some time (Thanks Tim!) QUESTION #1 - Is it feasible to see the Cliffs of Mohr on the way, or is that a whole day trip in itself? We don't have much time and I know you could spend the whole day in most places, but if we just have to see them on the fly, then I'd rather see them than not!

We will stay in Kilarney for 2 nights and we definitely want to at least hike the Gap of Dunloe and explore the park for one day. My question is - which is a must-see for the second day, Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry or Ring of Beara? We might only have time to do one justice. We like scenery, but also quaint towns and ruins. HELP!! Is there one that doesn't take as long and would be possible to just "swing through" on the way up to our next stop in Kinnitty just to take in the scenery, (I'm thinking Dingle?)

Leave in the morning and head to Kinnitty for a one-night stay at Kinnitty Castle because it was the only room I could find in a castle for the dates we would be there and we wanted to stay in a castle while we were in Ireland!

Wrap it up with two nights in Dublin and hoping to have enough time to detour to the Rock of Cashel on the way! We want to check out the Wicklow area a little while we are there. Any suggestions on what to see if you only have one day?

Any help on this itinerary would be appreciated! Any info you can give regarding realistic drive times would help! Recommendations on places to stay in town or within a short walk would be appreciated as well. We like wandering through the towns and having a pub with live music and a good pint to cozy into after dinner so countryside places are out because we want to walk back to our room at the end of the night! Anything around $100/night would work. Doesn't have to be real fancy, just clean and charming! Thanks! Oh, and I love antiques! Any good towns/shops I should stop into! Nothing heirloom worthy, but I'd like to pick a little something up that has the kind of history you can't find in the States!
