Ireland - 1 Week Options

Jump to last reply

We have lined up a 10 day boat cruise to Iceland in mid-May that starts and ends in Dublin. In addition to the stops in Iceland and Lerwick-Scotland, it stops off in Belfast for 1 day (9.5 hours) and has 2 days in Dublin at the end of the cruise (1 full day in Dublin after arriving at 6:00 am and then disembark on the 2nd day). We are now trying to decide/plan on what to do after the cruise ends in Dublin.
Our thoughts are to stay/travel in Ireland for another week (to a max of 10 days) …. it will be our 1st time visiting Ireland. We prefer walking around old towns and enjoying the outdoors; we have been to a lot of museums, churches and castles and, unless they are really unique and special (or we have really bad weather), we will not make plans for those attractions. We also prefer staying put for a few days at a place instead of packing and moving to a different hotel each night. At this point in time, our plan is to go from stop to stop by train and use public transit and not to rent a car.
In addition to Dublin, another place that we want to spend some time is Galway (including the Cliffs of Moher); the questions are how many days should we plan on visiting Galway; is Galway a place that we can set up camp for a few days and do daily excursions; should we include Cork or Killarney as a stop and, if so, for how many days; and how many days should we plan for Dublin (we will have 1 day before the cruise and 1 day as part of the cruise)?
Our final itinerary may become dependent upon our accommodation options and I will do a separate post on that -- hotel vs B&B's.
Thank you in advance for your feedback/suggestions.
