Advice for Sept trip to Ireland?

So we're leaving for Ireland in a little over 2 weeks (Sept 3rd). Here's our itinerary:
Flying into Shannon and renting a car (EasyTourIreland - Hertz)
Day 1 & 2 Doolin (Doll's B & B)
Day 3 Kilkee (Bay View B & B)
Day 4 & 5 Portmagee (Waterfront B & B)
Day 6 & 7 Bantry (Dromcloc B & B)
Day 8 & 9 Dingle (yes, we're backtracking for the Tradfest in Dingle) (Brambury B & B)
Day 10 - Kinsale (Tierney's Guesthouse)
Day 11 & 12 - ?? Connemara? We're leaving 2 nights open - just in case we want to spend more time in an area that we've already visited if not, we'll head up to Connemara.
Day 13 - Ennis (Old Ground)
Day 14 - fly back from Shannon
We plan to hike, enjoy the people, the beer and music. Does anyone have any advice of things we should see/do around these places?. Any suggestions on what to do if outside activities are rained out would be appreciated too!

If you in the West of Ireland a visit to The Burren is a must!

Hard to say without knowing where you've already been, but I think Kinsale might be worth a two night stay. And I think I would insert Connemara somewhere into the first part of the trip, rather than backtracking all that way.

Thanks Fidlma & azzure. We have the Burren, cliffs of moher, skellig Michael, mount Brandon, Aran islands, gap of Dunloe on our list of things we want to do. I'm trying to make sure I don't miss anything! Also I want to find things to do in case of rain.
Azzure, we weren't planning on visiting Connemara until after I had made all the other arrangements and if we find we'd rather spend more time in the southwest we'll skip Connemara (this time��).

If its raining, or even if its note, you can visit the Aillwee Caves in Ballyvaughan Co Clare - a fascinating place
