Ireland Driving Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am visitng Ireland for the first time in May, and would appreciate any thoughts on this itinerary. Two adults, self driving (although not used to driving on the opposite side of the road). I want a balance between seeing highlights and having time to relax and explore. Also, any restaurant suggestions at locations or along dirving route are very appreciated!

Day 1 - Arrive Dublin 7 am. Walking Tour, Guinness Factory, and "An Evening of Food, Folklore, and Fairies" dinner theatre. Thinking of staying at Merrion hotel.
Day 2 - Leisurely drive to Galway. Prehaps allow 4.5 hours? Any restuarant ideas along way or neat places to stop? Explore Galway or Connemara (is that doable?) that afternoon/evening and stay at Glenloe Abbey.
Day 3 - Guided your of the Cliffs and Burren. Any suggestion for tour company? (Or private tour?) Stay at Glenloe Abbey.
Day 4 - Falconry in the morning. Drive to Killarney, 4 hours? Is it worth stopping in Limerick? Suggestions for places to stay?
Day 5 - Killarey National Parl, Gap of Dunlow, Ring of Kerry.
Day 6 - Drive back toward Dublin. I'm open on how to get there, where to stop along the way. Any must sees?
Day 7 - Either arrive in Dublin the night before or early that morning. Explore city on our own. Dinner at Vintage Kitchen. Thinking o fstaying at Ariell House.
