Help Fill in Ireland Itinerary

Planning a 9 day trip to Ireland in July around seeing Bruce Springsteen on day 7 in Cork. Have Days 1-3 & 7-9 somewhat plotted out. Not sure about 4-6. Comments greatly appreciated and thanks in advance for any B&B recommendations:
Day 1/2: Dublin
Day 3: Get car in morning to Athlone town and Castle, Clonmacnoise, Kinvara - Dunguaire Castle, Ballyvaughan, Doolin/Lisdoonvarna Thinking about staying at Ballinsheen House
Day 4: Cliffs of Moher incluing cruise around them Cliffs of Moher. Driving around Burren taking ferry ending in Dingle (too ambitious??)
Day 5/6: Dingle Penisula/Ring of Beara, the Ring of Kerry ending maybe in Kenmare? Having trouble figuring out how much time to budget
Day 7: Kinsale including Charles Fort, Cobh including St. Colman's Cathedral,. Ending in Cork for Bruce concert. Looking for B&B/hotel recommendation
Day 8: Blarney, Athassel Priory, Tipperary, Rock of Cashel to Kilkenny Castle, Black Abbey, Smithwick's St Francis Abbey Brewery tour, Kytelers Inn Pub. Stay in Kilkenny
Day 9: Brownshill Dolmen near Carlow, Castledermot high crosses Glendalough, ending near Dublin Airport.
Thanks again,
Rob

I have this hotel booked for Cork. A change of pace from the B&Bs I mostly have.

I have a friend who stays in the Cork area on business.

He suggested staying in Youghal.

"Stayed in Youghal where the factory was.

Nice little villiage. STayed at Aherne's -- a nice B&B with highly rated restaurant. Great Irish breakfast cooked to order every morning."

The Merriman Kinvara might be a good spot for Night 3 then drop down to Ballyvaughan and take the coast by Blackhead into Dingle for the Cliffs Cruise. End the Night in Ennis/Limerick/Adare then drive round Dingle on the way to Killarney or Kenmare. The rest looks fine.
