Suggestions for 9 day trip to Ireland

Jump to last reply

Hi! I am traveling to Ireland for 9 full days with my husband and 2 kids (6 and 4) in March. We are flying into Dublin and renting a car for travel around the island. Any suggestions for must do activities, itineraries, places to stay? Is Northern Ireland worth it to see Giants Causeway? How about the Aran Islands? Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice!!

    Here's an itinerary I've been working on. It's 12 days, though, but maybe you can build something from it. Get a good road map, and use Google maps or something to figure out mileage and time between places.

    Day 1 (stay near Glendalough): Arrival in Dublin; get rental car and head south to Glendalough; just over an hour's drive. - Rest if needed then head out to explore the area.

    Day 2 & 3 (Stay in Kilkenny): Drive to Kilkenny; Explore Kilkenny City and castle. Explore Kilkenny surroundings including Rock of Cashel and Cahir Castle.

    Day 4 & 5 (Stay in Kinsale): Drive to Kinsale, possibly visit Blarney Castle (grounds, I've already "done" the Blarney Stone); explore Kinsale, Cobh, visit music pub in Cork City.

    Days 6 & 7 (Stay in or near Killarney): Explore Killarney, drive Dingle Peninsula, explore Dingle town, end near Adare.

    Day 8 –(Stay in or near Adare?) to make tomorrow's drive easier.

    Days 9, 10 & 11 (Stay in or near Galway): Explore Cliffs. Mini-cruise? Explore Galway, Connemara, and if possible, Inishmore.

    Day 12 (Stay in Bunratty): for final night before flight out from Shannon; Bunratty Folk Park and possibly medieval banquet.

    Day 13: flight home from Shannon.
