Ireland Experts: Help Beginning to Plan Budget Ireland Trip

Jump to last reply

Two of my friends and I (females in our mid-late twenties) are looking to take a 10-14 day trip in early June, and Ireland is one of our options. I need to do much more research, but with what research I have done, I'm hoping that you experts can help get me pointed in the right direction.

We're looking for walks and hikes, scenic drives, time in the countryside, history, and bucolic villages. Nightlife and pub crawls don't appeal to us. We're looking at spending about $500-$750 per person for car rental, gas, and lodging.

Right now I'm looking at flying into and out of Shannon and spending our time in counties Kerry, Clare, and Galway. Sights that look interesting so far: Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, Dingle Peninsula Drive, Ross Castle, Adare Castle, Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, Connemara National Park, Aran Islands.

Would it be possible to choose one base town/city for each of these three counties and do all of our exploring from the bases? I'm looking for recommendations for base towns/villages, recommendations for B&Bs, and suggested itineraries.

I'm also open to other suggestions of counties/regions to visit, I just need to make sure that everything fits together into a doable 10-14 day trip.

Thanks in advance!
