Ireland Trip - August 2017 - Hotels using Points

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a trip to Ireland in August 2017. Flying in to Dublin on August 6 and out on August 13.

It is my intention to book as many of the nights as I can using points. I have significant balances in AmEx Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards. Given the year before the trip, I can also accumulate with any chains with significant signup bonuses.

That said, we are planning on something like this as an itinerary and I am wondering if anyone can advise on slight revisions or adjustments that would allow us to use points to accomplish this. Of course 2-3 nights at an AirBnB in a quaint town/small city would not break the bank if it maximizes our enjoyment on this trip.

August 6 - Land, Rent Car, Drive to Galway, Day in Galway
August 7 - Galway (Aran Islands day trip?)
August 8 - Bunratty/Limerick Area? Want to see Cliffs of Moher, Worth stopping in Limerick?
August 9 - Kilkenny or Kinsale or Kenmare area? Not sure.
August 10 - Kilkenny or Kinsale or Kenmare area? Not sure.
August 11 - Dublin
August 12 - Dublin
August 13 - Fly out

Any suggestions on improving itinerary or maximizing the number of nights in hotels I can use points to book? We have no real 'must sees' and are open to suggestions. A lot of planning left to go.
