Dublin to Shannon in 8 days

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for input on a trip we've planned for Ireland this May. Is this route do-able or are we taking on too much driving? We had such fun driving the small back roads in England (following parts of the Romantic Road), but we didn't cover as much of the country as we hope to see in Ireland.
Day 1 (Friday): Arriving in Dublin early, go to hotel (Brooks), start walking (book of Kells, St Stephens, churchs, pubs)
Day 2 (Sat): Guiness tour, more walking and pubs.
Day 3 (Sun): Kilkenny - get up early and get rental car (Hertz, booked with World Mastercard), drive to Kilkenny, go to hotel (Zuni), start walking and going to pubs.
Day 4 (Mon): up early, drive to Rock of Cashel and tour, drive to Waterford and tour, drive to Blarney, go to hotel (suggestions?)
Day 5 (Tues): up early to kiss the stone, then head to Dingle. Any suggestions on where to stop along the way? Where to stay and what to do in Dingle?
Day 6 (Wed): up early and drive to Doolin (via ferry). Any suggestions on where to stop along the way? Where to stay?
Day 7 (Thurs): trip out to Aran Islands
Day 8 (Fri): drive to the Burren and walk a while on our way to Shannon airport for the night. Any out of the way suggestion for lunch?
Day 9 (Sat): early flight back home
