Ireland first timers - itinerary help!

Jump to last reply

Hello! We are two active middle-aged folks, traveling as a couple, going to Ireland for the first time. We want to see as many of the "must-sees" as possible, but think we don't have enough time (don't want to drive ourselves crazy by driving all the time). This is a sketch of what we have decided so far:

Day 1 arrive Dublin - sight see a bit around Dublin
Day 2 - take a day trip guided tour to Giants Causeway, etc. from Dublin = overnight in Dublin (seeing Giants Causeway is non-negotiable, so this is where I have placed it).
Day 3 - Glendalough (my husband especially wants to stop here), Wicklow area - arrive in Kilkenny. Explore Kilkenny and overnight there.
Day 4 - Get up early and head straight to Ring of Kerry (this is one of my concerning days). Overnight in Killarney.
Day 5 - Explore Dingle peninsula. Overnight in ?
Day 6 - Drive to Galway - explore for a while, then drive to Cliffs of Moher (would like to be there around sunset time, if weather is cooperating). Overnight in Galway.
Day 7 - Drive back to Dublin - bit more exploring
Day 8 - Dublin exploring
Day 9 - leave for the US

So, my questions are: have we allowed too much time in Dublin? Where could we possibly fit in the Rock of Cashel? Any suggestions for changes to where we're staying (town-wise?). Where should we stay on Day #5? Anything we'll be sorry we missed that's not on there? The trip comprises the following dates (if that's helpful): 2/28 arrival through 3/8 departure.

Thanks so much for any and all input!
