I am just beginning to planet rip to Ireland. I thought we might include Scotland but am having second thoughts about that now. We will have 4 to 4 and a half weeks. I thought we'd do 3 weeks in Ireland and remaining time in Scotland. I usually begin my planning with Rick Steve's and Fodorite's input. I know many of you do not like Steve's because it is too rushed but I can adjust his time frame as I so desire. His 3 weeks includes:
Dublin 2 days
Kilkenny- 2 nights with a trip to Cashel
Waterford- 2 nights with time in Waterford and Wexford
Kinsale- 2 nights with time to visit Cobh and Kinsale
Kenmare- 1 night,time for Muckross house and farms
Dingle -3 nights, a day for ring of Kerry, a day for dingle peninsula loop and a day for Blaskets
Galway-1 night, time for Cliffs of Moher, the Burren
Aran Island- 1 night
Westport-1 night, drive through Connemara
Derry- 1 night,drive to Northern Ireland
Portrush-2 nights, explore Derry and Antrim coast

I am thinking we will not do the 2 nights in Waterford. Also there will be 4 adults traveling I late May and early June,is it necessary to have accommodations booked ahed or can we make themes we go?
Please give input on the above itinerary and if we need to book ahead. Thanks much,
