Jump to last reply

Day 1. Arrive in Shannon - pick up a car and go to Ennis with a photo op stop at Dromoland Castle on the way. Spend 3 nights at Grey Gables. Things to do in town: Clare Museum, Ennis Friary, Childrens Shop and Poets Corner for dinner.
Day 2. Cliffs of Moher/Inish Oirr Cruise from Doolin with a stop on the way first to see Leamanch Castle. Bunratty Castle Banquet that night.
Day 3. Burren/Ballyvaughan starting in morning. Then driving down the coast east of the Cliffs to bridges of Ross to Loop head.
Day 4. Head on over to Dingle. Spending 2 nights there. Still looking at b&b's as Pax house only has room for one of the nights. Same as Emlagh Lodge. Sights: Conner Pass, Slea head, Inch beach, Ballyferriter, dun Chaoin, Louis Mulcahy Pottery shop, Rocky clogher head beach to name a few.
Day 6. Head on over to Killarney spend 2 nights. Sights: Gap of Dunloe, Ross Castle, Ladies View Mountains. No b&b booked--will wait til day before in case something else grabs our attention first.
Day 8. Drive to Kinsale spend 2 nights. Sights: Mizen head, Bantry, Timoleague franciscan Abbey, Drombeg Stone castles, Walking Tour of Kinsale, Charles Fort, Desmond Castle, and poss Blarney Castle. No B&B booked.
Day 10. Drive back to Shannon for afternoon flight to Edinburgh.

Thinking of only booking B&B's up until Dingle (since its the weekend) and "winging" it after that. And ofcourse weather will play a part. Any other suggestions for B&B in Dingle? Would like it kinda close to town to walk but not actually in town. Be nice if overlooking the water. And better yet if had a patio! Any other suggestions? This itinerary has evolved from staying in one place (Adare) to changing B&B's every night to this one. Our trip is now less then 4 months away. Getting excited.
