First time in Ireland itinerary questions

Jump to last reply

First of all thanks for all the help I've gotten so far from reading the forums and trip reports. We would love some advice on our itinerary for our first trip. We are concentrating on the west, but must include a couple nights in Dublin (non negotiable for my husband ;) I know we are missing out on the Ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula, among other wonderful sights but I'm taking the advice of many on this board and trying to limit to 1-2 regions (and also Dublin). We will have a car throughout the trip. Any tips or advice are appreciated!

Day 1 Fly into Shannon
Explore the Burren, stay in Fanore
Day 2. Burren, Cliffs of Mohrer, ??
Stay in Galway
Day 3 Galway City, stay in Galway
Day 4 explore Connemara, Kylemore Abbey
Stay in Cong
Day 5 Ashford Castle, Co mayo, ?
Stay in Cong
Day 6/7 Co Leitrim, (husband's family immigrated from here) Glencar Falls, Carrick on the Shannon, stay near Lough Rynn castle in Mohill. Any advice here welcome, don't know much about this area
Day 8 Travel to Dublin--any sights you recommend along the way?
Stay in Dublin
Day 9 Dublin, stay night in Dublin
Day 10. See Rock of Cashel, on to Bunratty, see castle, stay night in Bunratty
Day 11. Fly out of Shannon

Thanks in advance for any advice!
