Ireland -- tour recs; into Dublin/out of Shannon; short trip

Jump to last reply

Hi! Thanks in advance for suggestions! I've read through many posts and found everyone's comments so helpful, especially Tony2Phones, so I'm hoping to finalize my plans with this group's guidance.
We were in Dublin as a stopover from Paris to home base of NYC last summer. We loved Ireland and have wanted to go back ever since. This is a milestone b'day for me in August, and my ancestry is Irish. Must see southwest Ireland -- but this must be a quick trip due to work.
We are flying into Dublin (our starting point is Chicago, and this was the only non-stop at a good rate) and back home to NYC from Shannon.
We only want one night or less in Dublin, since we saw it last summer. Then we want to see the southwest, Aug 12-16 (it is a really short trip, we realize).
We also want to use public transportation and tour groups; myself, my husband and our well-behaved 11 year old son. We are just not up for driving. Also, we do not mind spending just one night somewhere and onto the next.
I love Tony2Phones' suggestion from another post to spend one night in Ennis, Bunratty Castle's medieval banquet, then to Shannon airport the next day.
If we are starting in Dublin, then ending up in Shannon, with only four days, is there a tour recommendation?
Day 1: Aug 12 -- Arrive Dublin 10 AM (we have been here before, so perhaps just a day tour and then depart for southwest via tour bus in the afternoon/evening, or do we spend the night there?)
Day 2: ? Aug 13
Day 3: ? Aug 14
Day 4: ? Aug 15 to include Ennis; Bunratty Castle
Day 5: Aug 16 Depart Shannon airport
Thank you in advance! Once again, we know this is not the ideal length of time, but we will be back!
