Ireland - Advice on itinerary, Killarney options and Romantic hotels?

Jump to last reply

I am going to Ireland in Aug with my partner, (a kind of a honeymoon actually!),confused how to fit in all the highlights in 10 nights and yet not to make it too hectic...
Heres my proposed itinerary:
Day 1 arrive Dublin
Day 2 Drive to Galway, take flight to Aran Island-Galway overnight
Day 3 Galway-Cliff of Moher-Doolin
Day 4 Dooiln-Dingle .lunch. Sleah Head drive via Connors pass. overnt Dingle
Day 5 Canoeing /long walks/exploring Dingle
Day 6 Dingle-Killarney.(do 1-2 of Killarney options-ring of Kerry?killarney NAtional Park ?Michael skellig?)
Day 7 Killarney to Kinsale. -Mizen head Peninsula
Day 8 Kinsale-to Kikenny (theatre/music festival, Kikenny)
Day 9 Kikkeny- Dublin in morn
Day 10 Dublin
day 11 fly out
My questions are:
1) On day 6 which of the Killarney options to do? ring of Kerry?killarney NAtional Park ?Michael skellig?(I have read that Ring of Kerry overrated and better to do Michael Skellig and Killarney National Park
2)If you recommend Michael Skellig island that should we skip Aran, which is also an island?
3)Instead of leaving Dingle for Killarney on day 6 morn, should we be leaving Dingle in the eve so we get a headstart on day 6 for the above options Killarney options
4)If Killarney options need more time, then on day 7 should i skip Kinsale/mizenhead peninsula and instead add 1 more day to Killarney? This would mean 2 nights in Killarney (instead of 1) and then Killarney to Kikkeny on day 8, skipping Kinsale stay?
5)where can we can do a short half day/full day easy hike?.. something with stunning views?
6)Any romantic hotels or B/B's with a great view you recommend?Hotel Europe in Killarney has awesome views but its a 5 star property, so very expensive!
7)Any other comments /changes in the itinerary?any place which are on our route which we could see?
8)My partner will be doing all the driving...is there any day in the itinerary where its too long, tiring driving?
Looking forward to hearing from you..
Thanks a lot,
