We are travelling to Ireland (and Scotland) in September this year. I would really appreciate some feedback on our itinerary. We will be in Ireland a total of 11 days (arriving in Dublin and leaving by ferry in Belfast). We are spending the first five days with family who is meeting us there so our itinerary is not flexible on those days.
Day 1 - Arrive Dublin, 10am
Day 2 - Dublin
Day 3 - Valentia Island, County Kerry
Day 4 - Valentia Island, County Kerry
Day 5 - Valentia Island, County Kerry
Day 6 - Clifden, County Galway
Day 7 - Clifden, County Galway
Day 8 - Clifden, County Galway
Day 9 - Slieve league area, County Donegal
Day 10 - Portrush area, Northern Ireland
Day 11 - Belfast, Northern Ireland
Leave Belfast morning of Day 12
It all seems ok to me up until Day 8. I'm worried I'm trying to cover too much of Northern Ireland too fast. Should I cut a night in Clifden and move onto the North on Day 8?
Priorities for that part of the trip are: Slieve League (must), Dunlunce (must), Causeway (would like), Bushmills distillery (would like), carrick e bridge (would like), Belfast black taxi tour (must).
