Ireland and the UK Itinerary Advice

Jump to last reply

Alright, seasoned travelers, here is a very rough sketch of my itinerary for the summer.
Keep in mind I have from May 21 until June 31 and I have lots of flexibility. So here's what I've come up with.

May 21-25: Cork (Lots of day trips out to surrounding places like Ring of Kerry etc)
May 25-30: Dublin (Again, lots of day trips as well as some city exploration)
May 30-June 3: Belfast (Game of Thrones tour, some city exploring, open to suggestions)
June 3-June 7: Scottish Isles (hopping from island to island in a north-bound manner)
June 7-8: Overnight stay in Inverness (time to see Loch Ness, open for suggestions here too)
June 8-12: Glasgow (trips to Lochranza, Lindisfarne, St. Andrews, open for suggestions)
June 12-16: Cardiff (trips to castles mostly, open to suggestions)
June 16-19: Plymouth (trips to Tintangel and St. Michaels Mount mostly, open for suggestions)
June 19-31: London (this is the part of the trip that I'd like to trim down the most. I've done London before and I'd like to have a few days there to explore, but 12 days is too many.)

So where should I add days? Where should I cut back days? What castles can I not miss in Scotland? Any suggestions are appreciated--I want to see all of the most beautiful places I can in the time that I have. Again I'd like to limit my time in London to 3 or 4 days at most so there's a lot of days to add in here and there!
