Ireland help - First EPIC visit in Sept

Jump to last reply

Hello, I'm new to the forums, but I have been perusing for some time. My husband and I will be traveling to Ireland/Scotland in September for 20 days. I have put together a proposed itinerary, please let me know if I'm being too "crazy" by cramming in too much. I'm trying to be as informed as possible. We really enjoy hiking (plan to walk along cliffs path, and some in Burren, and again Glendalough area), love to see castles, scenery, and pubs at night (not too late, we like our sleep as well). We are not huge museum goers. We are in our young 30s, and are looking forward to some of the "fun" driving in order to see some country side.


Here is my Ireland proposal:

Day 0 - leave for Shannon

Day 1 - flight into Shannon (7:35 am) - rental car - Burren or Cliffs of Moher- stay in Ennis or vicinity

Day 2 - Cliffs of moher in am (we are open to flip flopping burren and cliffs) - then drive to Killarney (3 nights) - I have read around 4 hour drive or more

Day 3 & 4 - Killarney (Ring of Kerry, torc waterfall, muckross, etc.)

Day 5 - Drive to Cashel - tour Rock of Cashel - drive to Kilkenny 1 night - we plan to leave early, be at Rock of Cashel around openning, spend 2-4 hours and then drive on to Kilkenny, if we arrive early enough go to Kilkenny castle as well

Day 6 - Kilkenny Castle - drive to Glendalough - afternoon hike/ picnic

Day 7 - Drive to Dublin - dump rental car - Dublin (3 nights)

Day 8 & 9 Dublin

Day 10 flight to Scotland

Any suggestions or tweaks would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks everyone
