Four days around Galway - best base

Jump to last reply

We are looking to spend 7 days in Ireland before we fly into Liverpool. We are flying into Shannon and want to spend up to 4 days around Galway (interests: Arran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, traditional Irish music and lots of walking) before taking the train to Dublin where we will stay 3 days before flying into Liverpool for the rest of our trip.
-
My question, would you suggest splitting the first four days into two different places based on our interests, (be it Doolin, Clare, Ennis or some other base and then two days in Galway) or just do all 4 in Galway and be prepared for a bit more transportation (keep in mind we are only using public transportation).
-
My concern with splitting is if we did that, then we would want to do the Cliffs and Arran Islands the first two days due to proximity, but realize those places are very dependent on the weather (we are going late July).
-
We would also consider flying into Dublin then taking the train to Shannon, just need to find a convenient flight from Galway area to Liverpool. Thanks for any help!
