Ireland Itinerary this October 8th -23rd. I’ve revised per previous TA suggestions. Ready for more opinions. .
Dublin – (2 full days) with hop on hop off or other tours – Pick up car rental
Glendalough, and Wicklow – (1day) – Two choices, do these as a day tour with a touring company out of Dublin and back to Dublin, or pick up our car rental and head out ourselves.
Rock of Cashel – If this is a “do not miss”, suggestions on where to fit it in with above sightseeing choice.
Kinsale, and Cobb – (2days) – overnite in Kinsale
Bear Peninsula -( 2days) - overnite in Kenmare
Killarney, National Park – (1day) - still need an overnite choice
Now both of these next area look great from the internet and wondered, if with driving time of my tentative itinerary, could I do both?
Doolin and the Cliffs of Mohr - - overnite in Doolin
Galway and the Connemara area drive (3 days)– I’m leaning toward this and spending about three days - overnite in Galway
Drive back to Dublin – ½ day
Each area I’ve researched seems to have a “castle” to visit. Any suggestions from TA on them. We can’t stop at all.
After spending two whole days in Dublin (which too is up in the air), we would have 12 days to sightsee but need to have travel time too . I realize that’s not much, so am eager to hear from you. Since we come from the middle of the USA, the coastal areas would be my choice. I have cut out the Ring of Kerry, which I know is a popular tourist attraction. Based on other recommendations, I did so.
The only thing set so far is our air travel. I haven’t pre-booked a car rental or lodging, sightseeing tours, etc. We will do mostly B&B's but not vouchers. Still need sightseeing suggestions, other than driving, in the areas I've chosen. Thanks again in advance for all your help.
