Ireland in September with Mom and Sisters

Jump to last reply

I'm lead on devising our trip to Ireland in September for 8 days. Mom has used the "It is my lifelong dream" route to force our hand this year. We are all from Florida, so I'm the only one who'll enjoy the weather and mom is not up to much walking. I'm trying to keep us in Shannon lodging so we don't pack out everyday, doing day trips with an exception for Waterford and Dublin. Here's the plan so far:

Day 1 arrive Shannon, get car, check in and hopefully visit Galway (52 miles from Shannon) in the afternoon.
Day 2 Visit Dingle (69 miles from Shannon)
Day 3 Visit Kerry (68 miles from Shannon)
Day 4 Visit Waterford (101 miles from Shannon) overnight here
Day 5 Visit Dublin (100 miles from Waterford) overnight here
Day 6 Visit Tipperary (100 miles from Dublin) return to Shannon
Day 7 Visit Limerick (20 miles from Shannon)
Day 8 return to US maybe stay an additional day.

Will this be enough to see Ireland, is it too much for a short trip? Any suggestions? I need to figure out hotel rooms and I noted with the exception of the area leading out from Dublin, roadways appear rural. And a bus tour is out, mom isn't one to keep to a schedule other than her own. Thanks!
