Our Ireland plan, sites, restaurants, B&B's etc, we shouldn't miss?

Jump to last reply

Lots of reading and mapping but this is our 'rough' plan for May 10 -24. (We will have been in London for over two weeks, so it will just be the short flight LHR to Dublin)

Arrive into Dublin about 10am, pick up hire car and head to Kilkenney via Glendalough and the Wicklow mountains. I will have a B&B booked, so we can take the better part of the day enjoying the drive.
2 x nights Kilkenney

Next day drive out to the Rock of Cashel and maybe back to Kilkenney via Waterford?

I was thinking of the next night in Kinsale, suggestion on sites and things to do.
1 x night Kinsale

Then head to Kenmare for two nights, priorities are to drive the Ring of Kerry at leisure and visit Skellig Michael.
2 x nights Kenmare

The next day we will head north towards Doolin (we will probably have a look at Dingle when we leave Kenmare) is Doolin a good base for two nights to visit the Cliffs of Moher and a few sites on the Burren? We will drive from Dingle and use the Tarbert/Killimer ferry and avoid Limerick. (as per Rick Steves driving suggestion)
2 x nights Doolin

Next day drive to Cong following RIck Steves driving suggestions Connemara and County Mayo. Spend a full day exploring the coastal sites.
2 x nights Cong

We will then have a longish drive to either Derry or Portrush (suggestions please) and base for 2 nights to visit Giants Causeway, Carrick a rede and other sites.
2 x nights Derry/Portrush

Then head to Belfast and maybe just have one night here or nearby, Bangor maybe? We really just want to do a tour of the city to see some of the murals and significant sites.
1 x night Belfast

Finally head back to Dublin, maybe staying at Trim? Again we just want to have a look at Dublin, we will have a full day plus the next day we don't fly out again till after lunch, so will have that morning too, we will drop the car at the airport before our flight.
2 x nights Dublin

This is pretty much just a plan to work to, the reason we don't book ahead is in case we change our mind, we may spend more time at one place but less at the next. Love to hear your suggestions of great places to visit in these areas. I know some will say it’s a lot of driving, but we do love it. As I mentioned we wont book ahead, apart from the first two nights, so any B&B suggestions would be great. Thanks ahead of time, AD
