Itinerary set (sort of) for 7 nights in Ireland

Jump to last reply

Hi. I posted several weeks ago and got great advice. I'm traveling in late July with my husband, my 19- and 23-year-old daughters, and my mother-in-law (79 but good to go). We land in Dublin in the morning, get a car and our first two nights are in Waterford. Then two nights in Killearny, two nights in Galway, one night in Dublin, and off to London. We're pretty laid-back travelers, want to see cool stuff during the day, find a pub in the evening and get up and go the next day.

We arrive at about 9 a.m, so I figure we'll head straight to Waterford. I see there's a national park sort of on the way, and normally I would be interested in checking it out. But I think that, as I'm getting used to driving (plus after flying all night) it would be better to go straight to Waterford, check into the hotel and catch my breath. Which leads to question No. 1: What is Waterford like? I have a feeling it's a nice town, but other than the crystal (which has little interest, except to my mother-in-law) I don't know anything about it.

Next day, I plan to spend the day in Kilkenny. That's the only must-do on my mother-in-law's list, and it sounds like a cool place. Then we'll head back to our hotel (and a pub) in Waterford.

Up and out to Killearny the next morning. Again, I'd like to get the driving out of the way, but if there's anything I shouldn't miss on the way, please let me know. Once we're settled in there, I thought we'd explore the nearby park.

The next day will be a full day, and I'd like to see the Ring of Kerry. Which leads to question No. 2: Is it going to be a tourist disaster, or is that chatter overblown? Somebody suggested a similar, less congested drive, which I might prefer if the Ring of Kerry will be crazy.

Then, the next day, we're off to Galway. Again, I'd like to get there, check in and then explore nearby that day. Now, question No. 3: What do you suggest we do for that part-day in Galway? I plan to go to the Cliffs of Moher the next day.

After that, it's off to Dublin. I see that we'll pass the River Shannon, and I'd like to pull off the road on the way if there's a scenic stop on the river - any ideas on that? (One of my daughters is named Shannon.) One regret is that we'll only have the rest of that day and night in Dublin, but that's the way it worked out.

Sorry to go on for so long. Thank you for your thoughts and suggestions.
