Sights in southern Ireland, am I missing anything?

Jump to last reply

We will be taking a short jaunt throughout the southern half of Ireland mid March, after spending St. Patty's Day in Dublin.

Day 1 - driving to Cliffs of Moher from Dublin, then settling in for the night in Galway at the Spanish Arch Hotel. Does anyone know if O'Brien's Tower is open yet? On the Cliffs website, it says the viewing tower is set to open back up in 2009.

Day 2 - driving from Galway to Cork, on the way visiting: Blarney, Bunratty Castle, Adare Castle. Is it worth the drive to Killarney to visit Muckross House? We would drive Galway to Killarney then shoot over to Cork. Any suggestions for accommodation in/around Cork? We are hoping to spend $75 US or less for a room.

Day 3 - We have a lot going on today. Cobh (maybe), Barryscourt Castle, Jameson Distillery, Cahir Castle, Rock of Cashel and Kilkenney Castle before settling in around Kilkenney. (suggestions for accommodation? would it be better for us to push on and stay around Kildare instead?) If Day 2 ends early, we may check out some Day 3 sights on Day 2.

Day 4 - we fly out to Spain at 3:30 pm. We were hoping to have time to visit Powerscourt before we head to Dublin Airport.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Is there anything off of my list that we must see...or something on the list that is just so-so and could be taken off? Thanks!!
