last minute plan 8 nights in Ireland Need help!

Jump to last reply

My husband and i are flying to Ireland we have a business trip in Cork for 3 nights Sept 2,3,4 but will be taking advantage of some extra days to explore. Its just two of us - would like to see a few sights rent a car. we like driving trips but are not the type of travellers who like to cram in as much as possible but rather savour a bit of a slower travel. Im wondering if we are biting off more than we can chew. Really wanted to go north after Dublin to the the Giants Causeway but because we are obligated to Cork are we spreading ourselves out too thin with lots of driving time? is there a better way to go about this? any feedback is appreciated

Idea is to fly into and explore Dublin for two nights Aug 27 28 (we will be flying from 6 days in Paris so not much jet lag to worry about)
Pick up rental car Drive north to the Giants Causeway stay one night Aug 29
drive down to Silgo area stay 2 nights Aug 30 31
Down to Kilarney stay 1 night sept 1
Cork 3 nights 2,3,4 (obligatory at least for the 2nd and 3rd)
Fly out from Dublin 5th

I actually would prefer to stay 2 to 3 nights in a given location but not sure how i should divide it up. Perhaps cutting out the North and just enjoying the South would be the better way to go. My ideas are a bit all over the place being that it is such a short notice trip ;P (just a little stressed) so your experienced help is needed. Thanks!
