Fairly Leisurely Ireland itinerary

Jump to last reply

As background, I've been to Ireland once years ago on a TWA Getaway Tour (remember them?), now would like to go on my own with a partner who's never been. I don't really need to see Dublin again; most of the rest of the sights below will be new for both of us.

Day 1 (stay near Glendalough): Arrival in Dublin; get rental car and head south to Glendalough; just over an hour's drive. - Rest if needed then head out to explore the area. Would like to visit Avoca as well (Ballykissangel fans).

Day 2 & 3 (Stay in Kilkenny): Drive to Kilkenny; Explore Kilkenny City (all sorts of wonderful things including a pretty amazing castle); Explore Kilkenny surroundings including Rock of Cashel and Cahir Castle.

Day 4 & 5 (Stay in Kinsale): Drive to Kinsale, possibly visit Blarney Castle (grounds, I've already "done" the Blarney Stone); explore Kinsale, Cobh, visit music pub in Cork City.

Days 6 & 7 (Stay in or near Killarney): Explore Killarney, drive Dingle Peninsula, explore Dingle town.

Days 8, 9 & 10 (Stay in or near Galway): See Cliffs en route from Killarney. Explore Galway, Connemara, and if possible, Inishmore.

Day 11 (Stay in Bunratty): for final night before flight out from Shannon;  Bunratty Folk Park and possibly medieval banquet.

Day 12: flight home from Shannon.

Does anyone have any opinions on this? I think the driving is pretty do-able. Thanks for any input.
