more help with Irish itinerary: flying to Dublin, out of Shannon

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all who have already supplied helpful comments! We find we're having trouble figuring out a few details. After two or three nights in Dublin, we're going to head west, we know, but where? Directly to Galway, from where we'll visit the Aran Islands and perhaps Connemara? or somewhere else midway? And if we go directly to Galway for two nights, where to spend the last two? Doolin had sounded appealing, but now we're leaning toward Ennis, which some have recommended.

We certainly want to enjoy the countryside and some of the topography, but we're also interested in ancient and medieval sites. We've decided not to drive the Ring of Kerry or the Dingle peninsula, but we would like to investigate the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. Knowing we likely won't have time to visit all of them, here are some of the places that are on our current wish list:

Newgrange/Brú na Bóinne <day trip from Dublin?>
Glendalough <alternative day trip from Dublin?>
Clonmacnoise
Rock of Cashel

We don't want to have a car in Dublin but will want to rent one somewhere outside of town; recommendations for car pickup also welcome.

Thanks in advance for continued help!
