Visiting Ireland in late April with my sister. Many questions
Day 1 Arriving in Dublin hoping to be out and about by noon to walk to Trinity (bk of Kells tour), see Dublin Castle (do tour?) Then wandering around Temple Bar a bit.
Day 2 Visit Guiness Storehouse...possibly,Ntl Museum of Ireland(Collins barracks), and Kilmainham jail.
Q [if we only do Guiness tour would there be time this day to pick up car drive to Glendalough and then drive to Cashel to sleep?]
Day 3 pick up car drive to Glendalough visit here 3 hrs or so..drive either to Kilkenny and sleep here, up in am to visit Rock of Cashel.
OR drive to Cashel.
Q [would there be time to do see Glendalough and visit ROC same day or too much?] [Is Kilkenny worth a brief stop in 1st scenario]
Day 4 if haven't toured already---see Rock of Cashel here, then drive to Blarney..my sister wants to kiss the stone..see grounds also and drive on to Bantry sleep here.
**alternate day 4: Leave Cashel early drive to Blarney visit castle/stone. Drive to Kinsale wander wander Kinsale a few hours and sleep here.
Day 5 This day I would like to drive from Bantry through Healy pass into Kenmare and then do Ring of Kerry end in Kenmare sleep here
(I think if we started from Kinsale this morning and tried to drive coast to Bantry do Healy we won't have time to do ROK this day so would shift ROK to day 6, and would cut out day tour of Connemara day 10.
Day 6 Leave from Kenmare drive thru Kilarney national park on way to Connor pass south into Dingle town.
Day 7 Tour of Dingle....sleep here.
Day 8 drive N to and drive Loop Head then drive to Cliffs of Moher.. and either sleep in Doolin or Lisdoonvarna (any preferences as to which town?)
Day 9 Tour Burren and Burren sites either end in Doolin/Lisdoonvarna or Galway
Day 10 Tour Connemara region end up in Galway
Day 11 Drive from Galway to Dublin airport drop car and depart.
Any help with any and all portion(s) would be greatly appreciated.
