Hi Dana:

I would only change the Cork overnight. You will see one big town in Dublin, I thought Cork was too big for me ( I am from NYC!) I would try and stay either in Blarney or stay in Kilkenny. The other option is to head down to Kinsale! Nice seaside town. Blarney Castle should take no longer than a few hours, even if you add in the Blarney Mills. (a must if you need to bring back gifts!) Maybe drop a day off Dublin and add a day in Dingle! It is a very special place

No need to go to Blarney just to visit the Blarney Woollen Millls - they have a branch in Dublin near Trinity College. Another good shop along the same lines is Kilkenny Design also in Dublin and Kilkenny, check out Clerys on O'Connell Street in Dublin as well. (For anyone going soon they are having a mid-season sale at the moment).

Have a great time,
