Ireland- NW itinerary, fine tuning

I am so thankful for all the wonderful suggestions given on my previous post. We did decide to really immerse ourselves in Co. Donegal by spending a week in a self catering cottage right outside Ardara. In our last 2 trips, we spent a lot of time driving. We would like to have a lot more time to walk beaches, mountains, forests, lakes this time. This is our tentative itinerary updated:
Thursday, Aug 29th fly out of NW Arkansas
Friday, Aug. 30th arrive Shannon, overnight in Doolin at Daly's House
Sat, Aug 31st, drive to Ardara
Sun, Sept 1st, Donegal Bay Southern Coast, Rossnowlagh
Monday, Sept 2nd, Northern Donegal Bay- Slieve League, Glencolumbkille Folk Park
Tuesday, Sept 3rd, Atlantic Highlands (Trabane strand, Dunfanaghy)
Wed, Sept 4th, Donegal Town
Thursday, Sept 5th, Inshowen Peninsula, Gap of Mamore, Malin Head
Friday, Sept 6th. We can play this by ear or we can leave the cottage a day early and head to Westport for a trip to Achill Island
Sat, Sept 7th. Depends on what we decide about the day before.
Sun, Sept 8th. Drive to Bunratty
Mon, Sept 9th. fly home

So...any advice? Places to see? Pubs to visit?
