Is this Ireland itinerary realistic or overambitious?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. I'm travelling to Ireland for ten days in a little bit more than a month. This will be my first time overseas, and I don't really know what to expect. I put together a sample itinerary that seems doable, but thought I would run it by people that have made the trip before. In case it is relevant, I'm in my early twenties, travelling solo, and plan on only using public transportation.

Day 1 - Arrive in Dublin (8:45 AM) Spend entire day in Dublin.

Day 2 - Take the first shuttle in the morning to Bru na Boinne to tour Newgrange. Return and spend the rest of the afternoon in Dublin. Take the last train of the day from Dublin to Galway.

Day 3 - Take Lally bus tour of The Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, and County Clare. Spend the night in Galway.

Day 4 - Depart for the Aran Islands via Galway and Rossaveel. Spend the day on Inishmore Island and take a return ferry to Doolin.

Day 5 - Use the day to explore Doolin, Lisdoovarna, and Tralee. Make it to Dingle by the end of the day.

Day 6 - Tour the Dingle Peninsula. Spend a second night in Dingle.

Day 7 - Travel from Dingle to the Rock of Cashel. Spend the afternoon exploring the Rock, and take the last bus to Waterford.

Day 8 - See the crystal factory in the morning. Then, take the train back to Dublin. In Dublin transfer to a second train up to Portrush.

Day 9 - Explore Portrush and the Antrim coast. At the end of the day take a train to Belfast.

Day 10 - Use this day to see Belfast and return to Dublin at the end of the day.

Day 11 - Fly out of Dublin at 9:30 in the morning.

My itinerary isn't set in stone, so I am willing to take advice from more experienced travelers. Let me know what you think.
