Itinerary help - 2 week trip with wedding in late May/early June

Jump to last reply

My mom and I are going to Ireland from May 27 (get in on the 28th) - June 10. We haven't booked our flights yet so can fly out of any city, but currently planning to fly into Shannon and out of Dublin. The primary reason for the trip is a wedding in Clonakilty, where we will be from June 3-4. For the rest of the time we will be touring Ireland by ourselves with a rental car (except for time in Dublin).

Since we will already in SW Ireland for the wedding and we only have 2 weeks, it seems like it makes sense to concentrate there. However, our family is from Donegal, and we'd love to make it up there if possible - just looks tough from a driving time perspective. We also are planning a few days in Dublin at the end of the trip.

I'd love to get recommendations for an itinerary - it seems like there's SO much to do in SW Ireland that it's hard to cut anything. I'm not sure it's worth making the trek up to Donegal, but even without it our itinerary looks jammed pack! We're looking for a mix of gorgeous scenery (I'm very into photography), castles, small towns and historic sites, with emphasis on the scenery in particular. I will be doing most of the driving, so I want to avoid having more than one or two 3+ hour drives if we can. Thanks so much!
