Have you mapped it all out? It seems like a lot in that time frame...
Dublin looked like a bear to drive in--we picked up the car at the airport. We needed a bit of time to acclimate ourselves to driving on the other side, but then found driving easy.

Just outside Cork is the distillery headquarters of Jameson. Very picturesque old industry with modern results; take the guided tour that includes a tasting. Jameson is part of the Pernod Ricard group which own an international variety of Scotch, rye whiskey, some rum and gin distilleries wine in Australia and other premium brands.

I'd highly recommend the EPIC Emigration Museum in Dublin. Very interactive and compelling!

Pick up car on way to Northern Ireland. It is a major highway so will help you acclimate to driving. Two nights should be ok for what you want to see in NI. Bushmill's Inn would be a good stop. I do like Belfast though and would stay a night there. You could do the Black cab tour and the City hall tour. Great places to eat there.

We had a wonderful holiday in Northern Ireland last summer.
One of our highlights was visiting Mussenden Temple on the north coast (link below) - it was stunning. The estate needs at least 2 hours.
We visited Belfast and struck lucky on a truly fabulous B&B a short drive out of the city. The reviews on TA are all 5 star which doesn't surprise me in the slightest.
