Very tentative Ireland itinerary

Jump to last reply

Taking the next two granddaughters (ages 18 & 21) to Ireland June 14-21, 2013. Eldest is an historian so I planned accordingly.

Friday, June 14 Arrive Dublin (from Texas), Aircoach to Trinity College (I welcome suggestions for alternative travel). Drop bags at Trinity if possible. Start HOHO bus tour. Must-sees are Chester Beatty Library and Kilmainham Gaol. Also want to see the Jeannie Johnston and take an historical walking tour, perhaps also musical pub crawl or literary pub crawl. Some of these things will wait until tomorrow as we have that full day.
Accommodation in Trinity College ensuite.

Saturday, June 15 Continue wandering about Dublin picking up the things we couldn't squeeze in yesterday.
Accommodation Trinity College

Sunday, June 16 Take DART to Dun Laoghaire and pick up rental car. On to Powerscourt and Glendalough.
Accommodation near Glendalough (Riversdale House?)

Monday, June 17 Early morning at Glendalough and then drive the coast road to Cobh.
Accommodation Cobh (Mountview?)

Tuesday, June 18 Explore Cobh, Titanic Museum, Fota Wildlife Center if the grands are interested. Drive to Sneem, via part of Beara Peninsula if time.
Accommodation Sneem (Hillside Haven, Coomassig View, Mary's Cottage?)

Wednesday, June 19 Spend the day exploring Co. Kerry with a friend who lives near Sneem.
Accommodation, Sneem

Thursday, June 20 Morning with our friend; head to Bunratty afternoon. Loop Head if time permits.
Accommodation Bunratty (Headley Court?)

Friday, June 21 Explore Co. Clare; Craggaunowen, Loop Head. Evening, Irish Night in the Corn Barn or Banquet at Knappogue Castle.
Accommodation Bunratty

Saturday, June 22 Fly home from Shannon

Question marks by the accommodations mean I have not sent enquiries yet for availability. Suggestions always welcomed. This will be my 7th visit but the girls' first so I want to make it memorable for them.
