Help with itinerary for 7 nights in Ireland

Jump to last reply

We are planning a 7 night trip to Ireland in the beginning of July. This is a family trip with 7 adults, ranging in age from 30ish to 65. For most of us, this is our first trip to Ireland. We’ve been reading the guidebooks and checking with friends to get some kind of plan together. Here’s what we know so far:

* We will most likely fly into and out of Dublin. Looks like the option to fly out of Shannon is cost prohibitive for us.

* We are planning to hire a driver for the trip. I’ve driven in Ireland before and it was OK, but the rest of my family is not at all excited about driving! We are thinking of going through CIE tours, since they have an option to hire a driver and can support a pretty flexible itinerary.

* As for our itinerary, we’re thinking 1 night in Dublin, drive to Cobb and stay at Ashford Castle for one night, then 2 nights in Galway, 2 nights in Kilarney/Dingle area, and 1 night in Kilkenny before driving back to Dublin for the flight home.

Does this look reasonable? Thanks in advance for the advice!
