England/Ireland - How's my itinerary?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to England and Ireland in late June this summer. Thanks to lots of snow days around the house, I've had some time to do some research and lay out a rough plan. I'm hoping to get some feedback from the pros! We are both 29, and enjoy going out at night, but I am also a big history and architecture nerd. We would like to keep a rather affordable budget on this trip - so I'm hoping to find some affordable B&Bs along the way. Flights are not booked - so nothing is completely set in stone as far as # of nights.

Day 1:
Land in Bristol @ 10:10AM
Train to Bath
Explore Bath

Day 2:
Day Trip to Salisbury/Stonehenge by train from Bath

Day 3:
1/2 Day in Bath
Train to London

Day 4, 5, & 6:
London

Day 7:
Fly to Ireland, land in Shannon Airport
Drive to Galway, stopping at Cliffs of Moher

Day 8:
Galway/Aran Islands

Day 9:
Drive to Kenmare (3 ½ hours)
Stop in Adare possibly? Should we stay overnight here?

Day 10:
The Ring of Kerry - the reverse route of the tour buses I hear is best :)
Overnight in Kenmare

Day 11:
Drive to Dublin, with a stop at Rock of Cashel

Day 12 & 13:
Dublin

Day 14:
Fly out of Dublin @ 12:10PM

My one possible edit to my Ireland plan that I'm already thinking of is going to Dingle. Possibly instead of driving right to Kenmare, drive to Dingle and stay there for a day. Then on the way out of Dingle do the Ring of Kerry before staying over night at Kenmare.
