Ireland in 8 nights

Jump to last reply

Looking to plan a trip for myself and daughter graduating college this spring. Her dream is to go to Ireland. I am thinking we will have about 8 nights for the trip plus one for the flight over. It would be best probably to fly into Shannon and fly home from Dublin. We would plan to drive the route and so I am looking at southern Ireland highlight tour, but not too many places.
Stay first night near Cliffs of Mohr
Stay a couple of nights in Kilearny
Stay a couple of nights in Cork
Stay three nights in Dublin?

If I am missing a great area, please tell me! This is in the early stages of planning. I am looking to use frequent flyer points to fly so I might be booking that really soon. Trying to keep the costs down on flights.

Two nights might be fine in Dublin. I am thinking scenic driving, staying in a castle one or two nights...
Daughter is not really a drinker. She might have a beer, but that is not her scene. She might enjoy being in a pub if there is singing and such. (she is a singer!) She is a runner. So I think the areas with more scenery will be great for her running. She is also a writer/author (which is probably from her roots of being Irish ;) ) She will shop but that is not what we want to focus the trip on. This is her mother daughter trip. I took her sister to Canada last year for her graduation.

Also, we can't drive a stickshift. She might be able to somewhat drive one. I see some car rentals offer the automatics, but don't want to get there and not be able to drive the car! Is this going to be a problem? Who is the most reliable car rental agency to deal with in your opinion?
Thanks for any advice!
