Ireland (south) - Advice on Early Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (60 years old) are going to Ireland from Chicago for 8 nts late March-early April 2014: flying in & out of DUB. We are staying just south of Limerick (in Adare) for 6 nts, and Dublin for the last two.

I've researched Ireland for years, and now the time is drawing near (relatively speaking!). I am definitely taking heed to those in the know relative to not trying to see too much in too little time. I'm also concerned about the driving aspect, a rental is part of our package.

I would like to decide for certain where & when we will be and begin to delve into specifics of what to see/do in each area. Here's my early (although much labored-over) itinerary:

Arrive Tuesday 9 am Dublin - drive to Adare Village - look around a bit, buy groceries, check into Villa and chill (we are in this condo for 6 nts)

Wednesday - The Burren and Cliffs of Moher

Thursday - Limerick, Galway City and a bus tour of Connemara

Friday - Killarney National Park

Saturday - Cobh, Kinsale & Youghal

Sunday - Dingle Penn or Cahir/Cashel

Monday - Newgrange/Clonmcnoise or Powerscourt/South Coast tour with that night's stay in Dublin

Tuesday - Dublin (staying north of downtown) Hop on Hop Off use

Wednesday - flight home not until 3:45

Probably our only trip to Ireland and there's an endless list of places to see. I want to experience Ireland, but be relaxed and soak in the culture. Thank you all (in advance) for your help!

Jill
