We have a morning arrival in Dublin and have accommodations in Adare. We would like to make the most of our to and from trips. Thinking of driving from Dublin to Adare via Kilkenny and a stop at the Rock of Cashel that first day. Are we crazy? We don't just want to drive straight to Adare and twiddle our thumbs while we wait to check in. Also thinking of heading back to Dublin via Blarney and Waterford.
I would love hear any recommendations for stops between Dublin and Adare.
(It might be good to let you know that while I'm the history buff in the group, I'm traveling with a group that is not oposed to some history... as long as it's sprinkled in with pint stops)
