Ireland trip in May

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking a trip to Ireland in late May and it's our first time traveling internationally. We are flying into Dublin and renting a car. Probably staying 8 days! budget will be around 1300 Euros for the trip (excluding car, plane, and hotels because those will be prepaid). We aren't sure where we are staying yet, but probably a mix of hotels and B&B's. I would love some feedback on our (tentative) itinerary. Is it doable? We don't want to be too rushed! This is a rough estimate of what I was thinking:

Day 1 & 2 - Explore Dublin and Glendalough. We aren't huge drinkers, but I'd like to visit some pubs and explore Dublin a bit. I love history and really want to see the monastic ruins and the round tower in Glendalough.

Day 3 and 4 - Drive to Cork, see the Rock of Cashel along the way. Explore Cork and visit the Blarney castle.

Day 5 - Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula

Day 6 - Cliffs of Moher and if we have time, the Aran Islands.

Day 7 - Drive back to Dublin and prepare to go home.

Does this sound doable? We are thinking Dublin, Cork, and either Kerry or somewhere closer to the Cliffs as our "base camps" (where we will be spending the night basically). I would love to visit Galway and Connemara but I just don't think we'll have the time. We would also like to stay in a castle for at least one night. Can anyone recommend one that is in either of these areas?

I am still researching hotel options, but I'm thinking a hotel in Dublin, a castle one night, and the rest of the nights in a B&B. Any hotel or B&B rec's welcome! Please tell me if I'm being overly ambitious in our plans!
