One week in Ireland itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am traveling solo to Ireland for the first time in early November- first time out of the United States :) :) :). I have 6 days, and I am flying in and out of Dublin- tickets already booked.
I am really excited to spend some time hanging out in the pubs after dark, but my days must be spent on adventures! I am renting a car. Here is what I have so far:

Day 1 - Dublin; I really want to see the library at Trinity College, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Temple Bar, Whelan's Pub (P.S. I Love You is one of my favorite movies).

Day 2 - Rent a Car and drive from Dublin to Ashford Castle; participate in some clay pigeon shooting, perhaps a hawk walk, and plenty of cocktails.

Day 3 - From Ashford visit Kylemore Abbey, then drive to Galway and stay the night there; what should I do in Galway? Is there anything else in the Ashford-Kylemore Abbey area I should stop and see?

Day 4 - From Galway visit the Cliffs of Moher, maybe stop in Doolin for lunch, then back to Galway for the night. What are some good pubs in Galway?

Day 5 - Drive from Galway to Kilkenny and stay the night there; visit Jerpoint Abbey, Kilkenny Castle, St. Canice's cathedral, Kytelers Pub

Day 6 - Drive from Kilkenny back to Dublin; stop in Glenadlough maybe on the way?
Drop my rental car off and spend my last night in Dublin in order to catch an early flight on Day 7.

Is this realistic? Is there anything I should skip or add? Is Connemara a must or should I save that for my next trip when there is better weather?

Also, any tips on B&B's or hotels would be greatly appreciated! I prefer not to spend over $100/night (other than the one night at Ashford). THANK YOU!!!
