Help with Itinerary for Ireland

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to set up the itinerary for our one year anniversary. Trying to decide on where and how long to stay in each area if I have the following places of stopping points in mind. I'll be flying in to Shannon from London on the 10th of March and leaving from Dublin on the 18th. We have tickets to see the St. Patrick's Day Festival in Dublin so this was mostly our purpose for leaving London to travel to Ireland. My husband said he def wants to relax and not feel like our itinerary is so action packed that it's in the car go all the time. I'm slowly making headway with this itinerary thanks to AARouteplanner. I just need to define and break it down so I know how to book hotel accommodations.

Reasons for some of my choices were because we didn't really want to go to all the big tourists spots. Just to tell you about our interests we love to golf, husband loves anything to do with history/war/police and military, anything outdoors, pubs, entertainment. We're in our late 20's early 30's.

ROUGH DRAFT ITINERARY

- Fly in from London on 3/10 and arrive in Shannon at 1:45pm. Pick up rental car.

- Possible stay at Oakwood Arms Hotel because I tried mapping that location from Dromoland Castle, Limerick Castle, King John's Castle, and Adare Manor and they all seemed within 19km of each other according to search engines.

-Head to Cliffs of Moher (Stay in Doolin or Lahinch)

-Maybe visit Ballybunion towards the Rings of Kerry (Stay in Killarney)

-Stuck between Cashel towards Kilkenny or heading towards Waterford

-From either Cashel/Kilkenny or Waterford travel towards Wicklow Mountains (I really want to see Lough Tay "Guinness Lake" and Sandy Gap)

-Then end in Dublin for the St. Patrick's Day Festival

-Leave the day after St. Patrick's Day for the US


Ok I know this is probably not all possible to do in 8 days 7 nights, but what do you think I could do if this is what I was thinking? Is there areas that I put that you don't recommend going to or is there a different route that you think would be best?
