Ireland Itinerary - Shannon to Dublin

Jump to last reply

First timers, heading to Ireland. Land in Shannon at 7am on a friday in August. 9 nights, and depart from Dublin, back to Boston on Sunday afternoon. Overwhelmed with the itinerary planning and appreciate the insight as to how to make the most of the time. Four in our family, two boys 10 and 13.

Planned first day heading up to the Burren over to cliffs, and then heading south along the coast. Second and third days Dingle and Ring of Kerry. Want to make our way East to Kiss the Blarney, visit Cashel and Tipperary, and stay a few nights in Waterford (Waterford Castle?) and or Kilkenney. Wrapping up last nights (Friday and Saturday) in Dublin.

Does this seem reasonable, and any thoughts as to places to Stay? Also, is the Dingle Skellig Hotel a good choice as a base to tour dingle and Ring of Kerry on nights 2 and 3?

Appreciate all the help. Hoping this is the first of many trips.
