Hello, all of you Ireland experts and well travelled fodorites. I am neither the former nor the latter, so I could use some practical advice. Our family of two early teens and two parents will be visiting Tipperary county, Kerry, Clare,Galway and Dublin. We will fly into Shannon and out of Dublin. Points of interest include Cashel, Cahir, Mitchelson Cave, Charles Fort,, Cliffs of Moher, the Killarney Nat'l Park, Galway ,and Aran Isles (sp?) ,last but not least Newgrange on the way from Galway to Dublin.

I have found a very inexpensive ( based on our limited travel experience) cottage in Glin, Limerick, $580 not euros for 7nights. Usually we budget much higher for accommodations $200 ish per night, but if we can save here maybe we could do something very special elsewhere. We will also stay 2-3 nights in Galway and 1 in Dublin. Is Glin central to all but Galway and Dublin? Does this make any sense at all or are we better off moving more often and if so please offer suggestions of different types of lodging giving specifics if you can.
Tony2 phones gave me some great hotels,but we have changed a few cities since then.
Thank you all in advance. I love Fodor's community.
