East and SE Ireland - your favorite sites?

Jump to last reply

I've gotten a lot of info for our trip in the west of Ireland and now on the E and SE. We'll be in the west/SW from Friday evening to late afternoon Wednesday and will then spend the night in Waterford to start with the tour Thursday morning. I have a list of too many sites between Dublin and Waterford and would love some input as to your favorites (or otherwise), ones not to miss (some of which we WILL miss) and the ones not worth the drive. Of course, I'd love to hear of any I've left out that we should consider.

We will start with the Waterford tour and have the rest of the day and the morning of the next day to fill until we meet up with our son. The worst part is not knowing how long it is between towns. The north south highways are great, but it's the east west routes that worry me. Are they all the 35 mph roads? Any driving info would be so helpful.

Here are the ones we come up with from Waterford (thanks Tony for what you've written elsewhere - your info has been a big help in compiling this list):
Kilkenny Castle
Rock of Cashel
Glendalough
Dunamase
National Stud and Japanese Gardens

Shell House in Dungavan - is this really a place to visit or just some sort of hotel? I read about it and would like to see it if not a ridiculous waste of time as long as we are passing by. Anyone ever been there or at least heard of it?

Avoca Woolen Mills - way out of the way, but we'd love to go. If there is another place like this in the SW, then that would work out better for our itinerary and prevent me from getting yelled at if we take the time to drive way over there only to find it's a two minute stop! If you have info, please share!

We might make our way up to Newgrange after meeting our son Friday afternoon to take the tour Saturday morning, but he is deciding what he wants to do. If not, then we will spend longer south of Dublin and see more on my list.

If we drove straight through from Waterford to Dublin, how long would that take, just for a starting point?

Thanks for any info!
