Need help on almost 3 weeks in Ireland: itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be arriving in Dublin on 5/11 and leaving from Dublin on 5/31. The tickets were purchased so that cannot change. The following is an itinerary that was suggested to me. We like to travel slowly and see places in depth. My husband loves photography. We will be renting a car. I would appreciate any thoughts.

Spend the first night in Dublin to adjust to the change in time and get over jet lag.

Spend a night in a B&B in Kilkenny seeing sights in the area.

See Cashel on the way to Kinsale and stay in Kinsale for 3 nights visiting Cobh and Mizen Head and Sheeps Head.

It was recommended that we spend two nights in Killarney visiting the national park and the Ring of Kerry but everything I read says to avoid Killarney and perhaps stay in Kenmare instead.

I think 3 nights staying in Dingle to do the town, Peninsula and Slea Head.

Then we would go through Connor's Pass. The suggested itinerary is a bit strange from here. They suggest staying one night in Tralee but, reading about this town in some guidebooks, makes me not want to stay there even for one night. The itinerary suggests going up to Westport in County Mayo next and staying there for two nights, coming south to stay in Clifden for 3 nights, then, weather permitting, taking the ferry and staying one night on Inish Mor. Then they suggest two or three nights in Limerick to see the Burren and Bunratty Castle. Then drive back to Dublin, stay one night and fly out.

It seems to me that we should stay in the area of the Cliffs of Moher and also see the Burren and that area first. I've read suggestions of staying in Ballyvaughan for this area. Then head north. Instead of Clifden, one book suggests a town like Roundstone instead. It seems from the map we could drive to Dublin from the area of Westport.

I would really appreciate any insight anyone might have to help me with this. Thanks.
