Itinerary help in Ireland

Jump to last reply

I'm tagging along with my husband on a work trip to Dublin end of March and would love some suggestions for the itinerary. He will be arriving in Dublin for work 5 days prior to me, so jet lag for him is not going to be an issue and he will be the one driving. Unfortunately, because of his work schedule we will not have much time, but want to make the most with what we have. We want to do and see as much as possible without feeling rushed. I realize with our time constraints we will be just scratching the surface. Interested in any and all input. Hotels (we are set in Dublin), food (we like anything from hole in the walls to Michelin - as long as the food is good), tours and anything else you can think of. Here is how the trip breaks out. Thank you in advance!

Day 1 - I arrive in Dublin in the evening and we stay there overnight
Day 2 through Day 4 drive to the West. This is where I need the most help. Want to see Ireland countryside and Cliffs of Moher. Thinking these 2 nights we stay in Galway and explore the area there. Or should we do just 1 night in Galway and another night somewhere else?
Day 5 - we are driving up (through Connemara?) to Ashford Castle for the night which is on my bucket list.
Day 6 - we have the day to explore but have to be back in Dublin that night as my husband has work meetings first thing in the morning
Day 7 and part of Day 8 - I'm on my own in Dublin. Interested in museums, good food, maybe a little shopping
Day 9-10 in Dublin with my husband. Guinness tour. Maybe a quick day trip somewhere?
Day 11 - fly out in the morning
