Help with Ireland itinerary

Jump to last reply

My spouse and I are making plans for a 16-day trip to Ireland in August. We have not purchased airfare or made overnight reservations yet but it looks like we'll fly into Shannon (enabling us to catch a local music festival) and out of Dublin. This DRAFT itinerary reflects advice from our Irish-born neighbors. They are of the opinion that we should spend more time in fewer places rather than trying to do too much. We agree, although this is our first trip to Ireland and we want to see what we can in the limited time available. Before locking in reservations, we would greatly appreciate other travelers' thoughts on the below itinerary, including the advisability of exploration by car versus public transportation for various parts of the trip. We are flexible so feel free to fire away if you think this is too much, not enough, or whatever:
