Narrowing down Ireland Itinerary - any suggestions appreciated

Jump to last reply

Thanks to those who have helped me thus far planning our trip to Ireand this coming May/June. I've put together an outline and would love any suggestions of what would be possible to add and perhaps what to omit. Hotels have been booked but can be changed with the exceptions of Portlaoise and Dublin at the end.

We are flying Boston/Shannon May 25
Arriving May 26
Renting a car ar the airport and making the short drive to Ennis
2 nights booked at Old Ground Hotel
Planning on spending the first day overcoming jet lag and enjoying the town of Ennis.

May 27- day trip to Doolin- take Doolin Ferry tour to Aran Islands - Innis Oirr ( 4 hours on island) and then one hour tour of Cliffs of Moher by boat.
Night in Ennis

May 28- Drive to Killarney. Morning stop at Bunratty Castle, drive to Dingle for lunch ,around Dingle Peninsula , ending in Killarney, hopefully before dark.
2 nights booked at Killarney Park Hotel.

May 29 - Ring of Kerry
Night in Killarney

May 30- Killarney to Ardmore
Not sure whether we will head down to Kinsale for a midday stop and go a more direct route and stop in Cork.
Night in Ardmore at Cliff House

May 31
Morning walk Ardmore Head into town. (about an hour)
Drive to Kilkenny spend the remainder of the day exploring Kilkenny.

June 1
Morning- Kilkenny
Leave Kilkenny mid-afternoon to meet friends in Portlaoise
2 nights in Portlaoise

June 3-
Drive to Dublin mid-afternoon- leave car at airport.
Arrive at hotel in Dublin early evening
3 nights Dublin (really only gives us two days)

June 6- Depart

I realize this is a bit of a whirlwind, but trying to get a taste of Ireland.
The last 5 nights we are spending with friends so they cannot be changed.

Any and all sugestions are appreciated!
