Jump to last reply

Planning a trip for this October with a friend. We're both newbies! Lots to see and do but don't want to spend our whole time driving. Please let me know your thoughts and if this is doable:

Arrive in Dublin October 20th, tour city and rest from overnight trip (Stay in Dublin)
Day 2 (Oct 21) Day trip to Newgrange, Evening at Dublin pub (Stay in Dublin);
Day 3 (Oct 22nd) Leave Dublin to Kilkenny, Tour city (Stay in Kilkenny)
Day 4 (Oct 23rd) Leave Kilkenny to Cork, Blarney castle, pubs (Stay in Cork)
Day 5 (Oct 24th) Explore Cork city (Stay in Cork)
Day 6 (Oct 25th) Leave Cork to Killarney, Exlplore Park (Stay in Killarney)
Day 7 (Oct 26th) Bus trip ROK or Dingle/Skellig Island, Do these exist? (Stay Killarney)
Day 8 (Oct 27th) Leave Killarney to Galway (3hrs) stop in adare (Stay Galway)
Day 9 (Oct 28th) day trips Clifden? Cliffs of Moher? (Stay Galway)
Day 10 (Oct 29th) Leave 8am to Shannon Airport, return car, flight at 12:20pm

I'm sure I'm off on some of the areas and missing some must do's so any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated. We have not booked yet as we we're also wondering if we should do this going the other way, IE Shannon to Dublin
