Scotland and Ireland itinerary help

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for feedback on my preliminary itinerary for June 2016. My husband and I will be landing in Scotland first and then heading over to Ireland. I would love to hear thoughts on various points:

1. Are any of the days too jam packed? I have a tendency to do that and I am really trying to limit myself this trip and not drive my husband crazy.

2. Are there sites not on my list that are a must see in areas we are driving through. We will be getting a car in both countries.

3. Specifically looking for some ideas for something for myself to do on days my husband is golfing. Listed below in the itinerary.

4. Any recs on lodging is appreciated a well. Probably leaning towards B&Bs or inns.

Day 1- land in Edinburgh and take a cab into city. Sight see remainder if day. Sleep in Edinburgh.

Day 2 (plan A)- spend day and night in Edinburgh

(Plan B) - sped day in Edinburgh then get rental car in later afternoon and head to St. Andrews. Sleep there.

Day 3- (plan A)- get rental car and drive to St. Andrews. Husband golfs at St. A and I will do something else. Thoughts are either Falkland or Crail..... Then spend the rest of sayin St. A and sleep there.

(Plan B)- already at St. A from previous night so can start the day earlier.

Day 4- drive to Carnoustie, husband plays golf. I'm looking for ideas of what I could do. I'm ok with driving a bit. After golf either drive back to St. Andrews if we've only been there for a night (plan A) or drive down to Edinburgh if following (plan B). If following plan B we'd drop off rental car and spend night in city.

Day 5- either driving to airport from St. Andrews or heading to airport by cab from city center. Fly to Shannon.

On to Ireland itinerary: I tried to get a mix of sights/attractions in my itinerary. I understand they are all tourist sights but are any not worth the time?

Day 1- arrive in Shannon, get rental car, and drive to rock of cashel, on to cahir castle, and then drive to Kenmare to stay the night.

Day 2- go to Bantry House and drive Beara drive. Stay in Kenmare.

Day3- drive to torc waterfall and muckrosshouse, lunch jn Killarney. Drive to dingle for the night .

Day 4- drive around the single peninsula. Stay in dingle for the night.

Day 5- drive to Ballybunion, husband golfs. I need something to do while he golfs, suggestions??? After golf drive up to Doolin via the Shannon car ferry. Is the ferry a good idea or drive inland?? Stay in Doolin

Day 6- cliffs of Moher in the morning, them possibly drop I g husband at Lahnich for a round. I was thinking I could drive up to The Burren for a bit while he golfs. Does that sound feasible? Then sleep in Doolin.

Day 7- drive to Shannon airport, return car, depart for the States.

Thanks in advance for your help.
