Dublin to Galway via Northern Ireland

Jump to last reply

Hello Experts, I wondered if I could get some input on a proposed itinerary for end of August 2012. Have been reading trip reports and info on ireland. This is what I have come up with but I would like some input.
Day 1 - Arrive 10 am. I know I will get comments about allowing for jet lag but I am a medical professional who worked lots of night shifts. I have travelled all over the world, I never jet lag so don't worry about that. Plan Newgrange, Kells Tombs, Knoch Abbey Gardens and maybe a short hike in Mourne mtns. Plan to stay in Kilkeel to Annalong area but have not found a B and B I like the look of. Drive 170 km
Day 2 - Mount Stewart Garden, Glenariff Falls, Giants Causeway, rope bridge, dark hedges,
stay in port rush. Drive 135 miles
Day 3 - drive across Inishowen ( having trouble finding out about the ferries, is there a website) Glenveach park, sleeve league, stay north of sligo. Drive 160 miles
Day 4 - All day horse back riding trip
Day 5 - Queen Maeve and megalithic tombs, Kylemore Abbey, Cong Abbey, Sky road, Brigids Garden stay in Galway. Drive 245 km

I would like suggestions about high points i missed or things to take off itinerary. Also any favourite places to stay? budget for accommodations is for B and B's, not Bushmills!! Thanks Kinloch
