My husband and I will be spending 4.5 days in Ireland, flying into and out of Dublin for my 30th birthday. We really want to spend some time on the West coast, as well as experience Dublin. I am looking to get your opinion on this itinerary to see if it's possible:
•We arrive in Dublin the first day at 5:10AM (overnight flight from Boston)
•Take the 7:30AM train from Dublin Heuston station to Galway. Get to Galway at 10:15. Breakfast and a little exploring around Galway. Rent a car with Budget in Galway Center, drive to the Cliffs of Moher, spend some time there and drive to Dingle for an overnight. Can we do all this in one day? We'd ideally like to get to Dingle by 5PM to experience the town in the daylight. (What time does it get dark in early April in Dingle?)
I realize this is probably an aggressive itinerary but we really want to see as much as possible while we're out there. Thoughts? Suggestions on where to stay in Dingle?
