Flying into Shannon out of Dublin - Ireland - Please help

Jump to last reply

Greetings. I have been planning this trip for two months. Originally, my daughters (college age) and I were flying into Dublin out of Shannon. I found less expensive flights the other way around. So now I am so not sure where to start. We will be staying 10 days and I will be driving ( : (.
Due to time limitations, we would like to do southwest to southeast. So here are my thoughts and please, please share your thoughts on the itinerary, so I may book our B&B's. Believe it or not we leave in two weeks.

Arrive Shannon - drive to Limerick or Bunratty,
Bunraty Castle & Cliffs of Moher and stay in Galway (?) for two nights
Day 3 & 4 Dingle - Dingle Peninsula and drive around Slea Head, perhaps River Shannon

Day 5 & 6 Ring of Kerry (?) not sure where to stay _________
Day 7 - Cork - Blarney Castle
Day 8 Kilkenny - Rock of Cashel
Day 8-10 Dublin

Dublin is the only location we will stay in a hotel. The girls and I would love to stay in B&B's where we can enjoy the country. All of your suggestions would be appreciated. If you believe the itinerary above can be improved, by all means help this Mom out. Also if you can suggest any B&B's in any of the locations above, we would appreciate it as well.
Thanks so much,
