5 days 5 people-S. Ireland-Easter-where to go?

We will be leaving Ennis just before Good Friday and want to travel south. We would like to make the most of the 5 days, especially since it is Good Friday and Easter. Any suggestions of good places to go as a base of touring? We will be using public transportation. We were thinking of possibly Kerry and Cork and would like to do b&b's since we will be staying at a big hotel in Ennis.

Since there are 5 of you have you considered self-catering for the 5 days. Have not been to southern part of Ireland myself, yet, but have been doing self-catering for a few years and came across this site that has some nice selections for Co. Cork. It's http://www.cashelfean.com.

Sorry...not being the seasoned traveller (2nd time to Ireland), what is self catering?

Pat,
Self-catering means renting a house or cottage and cooking for yourself - do prebook your accommodation as it is a holiday weekend and a lot of people will be travelling. Think of settling in Dingle for 3 nights or so and then perhaps over to Cork for the Cobh Heritage Centre and day trips to Kinsale and west Cork,

Hope this helps,

Cathy

Killarney is charming and accessible to much around there, Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Blarney....The city of Cork seemed rather industrial and unappealing to me.

Remember, Good Friday is a day of fasting so ALL the pubs will be closed (you may find a hotel bar that is open, but that is all. A lot of restaurants close on that day also, especially in rural areas, so it might be prudent to make a reservation, or check in advance. I spent Easter weekend in Dingle once and had a terrific time, but if you're thinking of going there, book NOW. All places fill up very quickly at Easter.
