Ireland 2013 *please critique itinerary* Help

Jump to last reply

A friend and I are traveling to Ireland (first time) with our kids (13, 12, 11), starting in Dublin. We planned on four days in Dublin, and hoping to include Trinity College, Grafton Street, Dublinia, National Museum of Ireland, Kilmainham Gaol, and the Guinness Storehouse. Is this doable in 3 days? We'd also like to do bus tours to Newgrange and Glendalough. Not sure if we can get this in time-wise, as we booked 3 nights hotel in the Temple Bar area.

We were planning on renting a car and driving to Kilkenny; we'd like to see Cashel, Cahir and Tipperary in this area. How many nights would this area take? Any suggestions as to B&B's? Then drive to Blarney/Cork/Kinsale...again, days here and places to stay? Off to Killarney for a day or two. We then would drive up to Limerick, Bunratty Castle/folk park, Kinvarra, Ailwee Caves and Cliffs of Moher, with castles along the way. We're flying out of Shannon, so we'd drop off the car there. We are in Ireland for a total of 12 days (14 minus flight days).

Any and all suggestions welcome! I've read that renting a car by a Irish company is best, such as Dooley's. Is there anything to this? Thanks so much!!
