Touring Ireland in May

Jump to last reply

We could really use some help for our first trip to Ireland next May. Linda and I have had so many great trips to other parts of Europe with the help from Fodor's and Slow Travel friends. We look forward to any suggestions that anyone has. In past trips we have traveled the slow travel method by picking a couple or a few bases and seeing sights from there.... but it seems that there is so much we want to see in Ireland. Our preliminary itinerary would be something like the following.

Fly into Dublin for 2 nights. We arrive fairly early in the day.
Rent car when leaving and drive to Kilkenny for 1 night...seeing Glendalough sights on the way.
Drive to Kinsale for 2 nights..... see Rock of C on the way....explore area.
Drive to Kenmare for 1 night.....skipping the Ring of Kerry.
Drive to Dingle for 2 nights..... explore peninsula and sites.
Drive to Doolin for 1 night..... pubs and music.... Burren...
Drive to Galway for 3 nights.... Aran Islands....sites..
Possibly last night in Ennis..... for early flight out of Shannon.....

This is not our normal slow travel method....but with several multi-night B&B stays....how does the route sound?
Any advice appreciated for a young feeling senior couple.

By the Way...... just booked United Chicago to Dublin and Shannon to Chicago next May for $1,154 Total for 2 of us. $577 per RT ticket.

Tim
