First Time to visit Ireland - Please help with our itinerary!

Jump to last reply

We wife and I are in our late twenties and generally pretty aggressive travelors in the sense that we enjoy seeing as much as reasonable possible. We decided for our first trip to Ireland that we would go a bit slower, but we still want to get the most out of all the locations we visit. We have to fly in and out of Dublin since we have already booked reward travel that we cannot change. Can you give us your opinion on whether we strike a reasonable balance based on our current plans outlined below? Any suggestions on ways to improve it?

Day 1: Arrive at Dublin airport. Explore. Hotel in Dublin.
Day 2: Day trip to Great Causeway / Londonderry via train to Belfast and tour bus. Hotel in Dublin.

Day 5: Drive to rock of cashel. Drive to Dingle town. B&B in Dingle.
