First time trip to Ireland (5 or 6 nights)

Jump to last reply

I have 5 or 6 nights to spend in Ireland in late September and am trying to decide what I should see. Part of me wants to see Blarney Castle but I've heard it's such a tourist trap to not bother. My husband and I have never been and were thinking of heading from Dublin airport to Galway for 2-3 nights and taking a few of guided tours through Galway Tour Company - specifically Cliffs of Moher and Connemara. Would it be better to just do one and then go to Cork for a night to see Blarney Castle before heading back to Dublin? I know the Ring of Kerry is beautiful but I feel like with us not having a car it wouldn't be worth seeing, thoughts? I want to see a lot but know we have limited time and traveling between places takes time.

Assuming we stay the 3 nights in Galway and do 2 day tours while exploring Galway in the evenings/upon arrival day 1. We would then explore Dublin the other 2 days/nights with the possiblity of adding a 3rd night where we head to Belfast and explore Giants Causeway for the day and then fly from Belfast to London instead of Ireland. I worry about timing though with having to get from Galway to Dublin and then Dublin to Belfast if we are allowing enough time to see Dublin. My husband definitely wants to do the Guienuss tour and possibly Jameson of we have the time. I'm more about nature and castles :)

Andy advice would be greatly appreciated.
