Ireland help please SW & West

Jump to last reply

Never been to Ireland, have 8 nights, flying in / out of Shannon last week of Sept.
List of places / things we'd like to see below, having trouble deciding how much time to allow in each, if we should allow more time somewhere or skip something. Want to book my B & B's ahead for peace of mind. Have 1 empty day below so we can change things some to allow more time at 1 place. Please, advice! Thanks!

Arrival day
Bunratty Castle ?
Adare - Overnight (will we be too tired to enjoy? Need more time 2nd day?

Day 2
Blarney Castle? (hear good & bad)
Cobh
Kinsale - Overnight

Day 3
Drive seashore drive (N71) Kinsale to Kenmare
Stops - Skibbereen, Mizen Head, Bantry, Glengarriff
Kenmare - Overnight

Day 4
Ring of Kerry
Overnight Killarney

Day 5
Dingle Peninsula
Ferry Tarbert to Killimer (sp)
Overnight Ennis? (Is this too much in 1 day?)

Day 6
Cliffs of Moher
Overnight Doolin ?

Day 7
Cong (a MUST DO for my sister)
Kylemore Abbey?
Where to spend night?

Day 8
This is the empty day, can change things above & add more time somewhere
But where?
Will have to overnight Shannon to fly home next am.

Feeling rushed, like we aren't allowing enough time in some places.
Help!
Thanks!
Linda
