We are traveling in April '12. The 2nd to last day of our trip we are going to be pushing it but would rather see what we can, than miss a chance to see the Connemara region. Just called my sister and asked if she was up for it and she's game. ...Here is total itinerary but question is regarding day 10.
1)Land Dublin 8a but to B&B walkabout O'Connel st., Trinity/Kells, Merrion square, walk by Dublin Castle, Guiness storehouse tour, wander Temple Bar a bit eat and back to B&B to crash.
2)pick up car at airport drive to Glendalough visit few hrs, drive to Cashel (we're pushing here a bit) If we're not complete zombies at this point visit Bru Boru in evening and then to our B&B.
3)In morning, see ROC. Drive on to Blarney (sis wants to kiss the stone) after this on to Kinsale sleep here
4) Wander Kinsale a little bit and we're off along coast to Bantry thru Healy into Kenmare sleep here.
5)Drive the ROK back to Kenmare sleep.
6)Drive thru Kilarney to Connor pass from North in to Dingle (I know it gets gnarley as driven it before but the views are worth the white knuckles) sleep Dingle
7)Poss do Scuirid tour in morn afternoon explore on our own. Sleep again Dingle
8) Drive north to Loop Head and drive around it then continue north to Cliffs of Moher and stay in Doolin.
9) Visit Burren area end up near Galway and sleep here.
10) Up and out asap and drive around Connemara, I've read about Sky rd. Clifden...looked at maps but not clear how best to drive this in our day, because at the end of this....we two idiots are going to drive the 2 1/2 -3hrs to our last B&B in Swords. In the morning day 11 we depart for home.
