Ireland itinerary

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are planning a 10-day visit to Ireland in September and we are considering booking a car and accommodations with Exploring Ireland. (We've priced car and accommodations separately and have found that a little more expensive.)

My question is regarding their proposed self-drive itinerary. They have suggested stays in:

Dublin, 2 nights
Blarney, 2 nights
Killarney, 2 nights
Galway, 2 nights
Trim, 1 night

While I like the idea of not changing B&Bs every day, I am wondering if there will be enough for us to do in each of the locations to warrant two-night stays. We'd like to visit as many of the country's "main attractions" as possible without running ourselves ragged. Will we be able to keep busy in each of these destinations or will we be ready to move on and be stuck with another night's stay or be forced to backtrack too much?

We're in our 40's and don't mind walking a lot. Typically we'll leave a hotel at 9:00 a.m. and not return (other than to change for dinner) until 11:00 or 12:00. We like museums, breweries, distilleries, leisure bike rides and walks, light shopping, PUBS, etc.

Also, does anyone have any experience with this company?

Thanks in advance!
