How does this 15 night itinerary look?

Jump to last reply

A wee bit about us. We're late 50's, with sweetie being very active (he cycled 100k before breakfast this morning), and me not as much (35 minute walk this morning). We like the romance of ruins and the beauty of the countryside, history, and the geology of the country. His best times in London last year were in the small local pub near our b&b chatting with the locals, and he`s anxious to do that again in Ireland. We have zero interest in touristy towns or reproduction castles.

We`ve set out a draft itinerary that we hope will work in a practical way as far as driving and taking time to visit and poke about. It`s perhaps too ambitious in the time that we have, and if necessary, we can cut out the north (even though I`ve paid for accommodation in Belfast, we`ll absorb that if it means a better trip overall)

Ok - here we go....

Sept 8 - Arrive Dublin from Toronto, Canada

Sept 9 - Dublin

10th - Belfast - see Newgrange, Titanic exhibit, Black taxi tour

11th - Derry - Bushmills, Causeway, Dunluce, enjoy the Antrim coast

12th - Clifden - this is a crazy drive day. Maybe too much. We want to get it over early in our visit.

13th - Clifden - Clifden castle, enjoy the Connemara, Roundstone

14th - Aran Islands - take the ferry from Ros an Mhil (or fly, depending on who wins that battle!)

15th, 16th - Ennis - Loop Head, Burren, perhaps a cruise from Doolin to see the Cliffs of Moher. Is that redundant - will we see them if we take the ferry to Inishmore.

17th - Dingle - Slea Head

18th, 19th - Kenmare - Ring of Beara, Gap of Dunloe,

20th - Kinsale

21st - Kilkenny - Cashel, Jerpoint Abbey, Kells Priory

22nd - Dublin airport hotel, drop the car off, be at the airport at 8:00 am on the 23rd.

This is pretty much our ``wish list``. I`m interested to know if it`s doable in a way that will allow us to enjoy what we`re seeing, or will it practically be too rushed.

Any and all suggestions, opinions, advice, and criticism gratefully accepted.
