Jump to last reply

Below is our itinerary. i would like some feedback on it. Does it all make sense? Is it a good idea to fly into Dublin and fly out of Shannon? I also would like some help with places to stay and things to do near/around Shannon on our last day or two. Thank you in advance! (Also, I know the drive times are not accurate, my husband just wanted a general starting off point).
