Help with itinerary days and stays, please?

Jump to last reply

Well, after having no power, phone, internet or cable for a week due to Irene, I'm finally back on! And I'm fretting that I'm not even close to ready for an itinerary and we leave on the 24th.

We land in Shannon on the morn of the 25th. We leave out of Shannon at 1100 on 6th Oct. We have a map highlighted on our wall with pins of all the locations my daughter wants to see. I know we won't get all of them in. But if I give you an idea could you give me a clue as to what you think the best amount of days and stays and where should be with this list I've narrowed it down to?

Dingle is on her list with a trip out to Skellig Michael, Cummingeera and maybe doing the Ring of Kerry.

Blarney Castle, Mizen Head, Kinsale and the Charles and James Forts.

Over to the east for Glendalough, Knowth, Newgrange, Tara and Trim.

Husband would like to check out Trinity and a few Dublin sights but we will be driving ourselves and I hear that's not fun to drive yourselves in Dublin so I don't know if we sould just skip the city.

Antrim is a must for the Causeway, and Dunluce.

Over to the west for Carrowmore and Carrokeel. Maybe a stop in Athenry.
Then the Burren, Corcomroe Abbey, Poulnabrone Dolmen, and Cliffs of Moher.

That would circle us around, hitting the major places she definitely wants to see. Do you think that this is doable in the 11 days we will be on the ground?

Thanks so much,
Jen
