Shannon airport to Dingle town - Realistic drive time for Ireland newby's.

Jump to last reply

Hi. I am working up an itinerary for about 10-11 days in Ireland (follows 3 weeks in England/Scotland). Having done some research and read several other posts, have reduced my time in Dublin, and will confine us to the southwest and south, taking in Dingle, Kerry, Cashel, Waterford, and other little towns yet to be determined.

My question is this: Aero Lingus flies from Edinbugh to Shannon, arriving at 14:15. Is it reasonable to expect to drive to Dingle town after arrival and renting a car? Given the time of day, with it staying light very late in early July. Probably can't hope to clear Shannon before 15:00. Then it's 18:00 or so getting to Dingle, if all is on schedule. This would not allow much site-seeing, I understand. Sort of a direct run to Dingle, if you will.

Google maps say 175 km and 2h 40m. with 3 different routes, all about the same distance and time; all coming out at Tralee.

We really don't like to get to B&B's late, but our goal is to do the Dingle Peninsula the next day, stay another night in Dingle, then stay two nights in the Kenmare area for the Ring of Kerry. I would then be heading roundabout back to Dublin for the flight home to the US.

Any advice on the Shannon to Dingle drive, late in the day?
