Ireland's Antrim Coast to Dingle - Seeking suggestions

Jump to last reply

We weren't even going to be in the north on this trip until I recently uncovered some ancestral things I'd like to check out.
Day 1.
Will arrive in Belfast by air from Edinburgh. Intend to rent car at airport, and proceed directly to Kilwaughter/Ballynure area in order to research relatives. Just a bit north of Belfast, so figure one afternoon for that. (Please don't suggest time in Belfast. We've already determined we will save that for another time.)
Need to stay not too far from the area, maybe around Kilwaughter or into Larne. Any good B&B's?
Day 2.
Next day plan to proceed counter clockwise along the Antrim coast, supposedly one of the more beautiful coastlines of Ireland, taking in Glens of Antrim, Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle, maybe the rope bridge. Stay the night in Portrush? or push on to the Derry area. B&B's anyone?
Day 3 and 4?????
I know there are things to see in the Connemara area. We also want to see the Cliffs of Moher in "The Burren" area. But I am unsure how to break it up and honestly, still researching the areas.
Day 5. Arrive in Dingle Town
All I can say for sure is that on the fifth day, I need to get to Dingle Town for 3 nights there. It seems convenient to take the Killimer-Tarbert ferry from north to south.
Wide open to suggestions on the three days from Derry/Portrush to Dingle.
Thank you.
