Ireland Itinerary Feedback Please

Jump to last reply

I have a fairly last minute Ireland trip planned and could use a bit of feedback. The intention is to have a good mix of what Ireland has to offer (at least the southern part), understanding the limits of time, and not to simply rush from one place to another. To this end, I have chosen a few bases that I hope are situated in locations to provide access to a variety of possible activities. I have 11 days and nights not including the days we are traveling (overnight flight), but including the day of arrival. We will be renting a car. Any feedback on the following is greatly appreciated (hopefully this works and you will agree it makes sense:-).

Day 1 - Arrive Dublin around 9 a.m. (take bus to city. Do what we can do given jet lag) - sleep Dublin

Day 2 - More time in Dublin enjoying sights -- sleep Dublin

Day 3 - Take a Newgrange bus tour (no car yet) - sleep Dublin

Day 4 - Pick up rental car in a.m. Go to Killkenny stopping in Powerscourt and through Glendalough -- Sleep Kilkenny

Day 5 - Tour Kilkenny (Castle, maybe St. Canice's Cathedral) and head toward Killarney stopping at Rock of Cashel and/or Cahir Castle depending on time -- slew Killarney

Day 6 -- Killarney sights (Killarney National Park, Muckross house, Torc Waterfall, etc.) -- sleep Killarney

Day 7 -- Day trip to Dingle Peninsula or Beara Peninsula/Kenmare -- sleep Killarney

Day 8 - Head toward Galway stop in Adare, visit Burren and Cliffs of Moher (time/weather permitting) -- Sleep Galway

Day 9 Visit Galway and ? -- sleep Galway

Day 10 -- Drive to Connemara (Kylemore Abbey, Clifden, Sky Road) - Alternative: Aran Islands - sleep Galway

Day 11 Leave Galway toward Bunratty (visit Cliffs of Moher or Burren if not yet done otherwise possibly Bunratty Castle -- sleep Bunratty

Day 12 - Depart for home from Shannon Airport.

Summmary: 3 nights Dublin, 1 night Kilkenny, 3 nights Galway, one night Bunratty.

Thanks in advance for all thoughts!
