Ireland advice

Jump to last reply

I am trying to put together an agenda for our trip to Ireland next month. We will be in Ireland for 7 days.

The first 2 days will be in Dublin:
Temple bar hotel in temple bar neighborhood
Grafton street - pedestrian street with shopping
Oconnell st - shopping, monuments, garden of remembrance at end of street
National museum of archeology
Trinity college - the book of kells, the long room
St Stevens green
River Liffey - hapenny bridge
Pubs - stags head, temple bar
Kilmainhim gaol - jail
Cobblestone bar - music 7 nights a week

From there we are heading west:
New grange - outside of Dublin
Passage Tomb -pre Christian, before pyramids, before stone henge

I need some advice on where to stay for the next 2 nights.. I am debating Galway or Ennis. Our itinerary for the next 2 days are:

In Galway city - mid evil , lots of music
Mcdunnas sea food restaurant near Galway bay
Eyre square

From there drive to Connemara
Drive 12 bends to Clifdent
Take Sky road out of Clifton - right on edge of cliff to water

Then head to Claire
Cliffs of moher
Town of Ennis - one of neatest towns in Ireland, cobblestone, mid-evil
Bunratty castle most intact mid-evil castle in Ireland

Where do you think would be a good base for these 2 days? Will it be too much driving to cover all of this out of one hotel location? Will this fill the 2 days or are there recommendations for other things to do in these 2 days?

I hate to change hotels every night but also want to make the most of my time in Ireland so trying to find the tradeoff between changing hotels and fitting in more site seeing vs. driving.

I would love recommendations on the rest of my itinerary so will post more when I have it decided. But from here we would like to go to Killarny, Cork and Waterford. All suggestions are welcome.

Thanks so much!
