Cork to Dublin, 9 day itenary

Jump to last reply

We are planning 9 full days Ireland. We will fly into Cork from Germany. This will be our first visit to Ireland. My husband and I are renting a car in Cork. We don't have an ambitious checklist of sights to see. Our trip will end in Dublin.
Interested mostly in seeing beautiful scenery, hearing great music and taking in some history (especially ancient to Medieval). we will have had a fair dose of cathedral/castle/history intense stops before coming to Ireland so we will opt for more relaxed touring rather than darting around the country for all the 'must sees'.
So we are thinking of something like this:
Arrive in Cork around 5:30. Hence, first night will be in Cork
Day 1. Kilarney National Park sleep in Kenmare
Day 2 Ring of Kerry sleep in Kilarney
Day 3 Dingle Pennisula sleep in Dingle (possibly Portmagee if we decide to got Skellig Michael)
Day4 Dingle
Day 5 Clifts of Moore, Burren. Sleep in Ennis
Day 6 Galway
Day 7 Aran Is. (possibly overnight
Day 8 Connemara Galway
Day 9 travel. sleep in Dublin (route suggestions?)
Day 10 Dublin stuff (book of Kells, St. patrick's, the literary pub crawl, sleep in Dublin
We have not booked anything yet, and would love feedback and suggestions. I am a bit concerned about it packing too much in as it is, and would appreciate comments regarding that. Right now I am fan of keeping it simple, yet we still want to experience the beauty and culture of western Ireland.
Thanks!
