Hi TA Folks,
Would love some input on my itinerary! I'm traveling in mid-May with my husband and we're avid hikers - and while hiking isn't the primary focus on this time, we'd love to visit some national parks, and also fit in some small (1-3 hour) to moderate (4-5 hour) hikes/walks. We'd like to fit that in with seeing some sights and doing things that help us experience the culture of an area.
2 - Get rental car, drive to Galway. See Clonmacnoise on the way. See Galway.
3 - Connemara - walk. Stay Galway.
4 - Aran Islands (Probably Inishmor, rent bikes). Stay Galway.
5 - Drive to Dingle. (See The Burren on the way? Small walk?) Stay Dingle.
6 - Dingle Penninsula. Drive/walk. Stay Dingle.
7 - Killarney National Park, Gap of Dunloe. Stay Killarney.
8 - Drive Killarney to Kilkenney, see Cashel and/or Cahir on the way. See some of the artisans around Kilkinney. Stay Kilkenney.
9 - Drive to Glendalough, see the ruins, walk. Stay Glendalough/Laragh.
10 - Drive back to Dublin, fly out. :(
Any feedback? Anything I'm missing? Is this too much? Am I missing a lot by not seeing the Cliffs of Moher or ROK? Also, is it realistic to be staying in Glendalough the night before we fly out? The flight wouldn't be until the afternoon.
Thanks so much! What would we all do without the great folks at tripadvisor to help us?
All the best,
