I will be heading to Shannon later this month. We are planning to explore Sligo and Mayo this trip. On the way up, I was thinking of stopping at Clonmacnois in Offaly. Is it worth the stop? Do you think it is reasonable to get that far on our 1st day? (we get in at 10am) If so, can anyone recommend a nice place to stay in the area?
Any help is greatly appreciated!!
P.S. I have been to Ireland before so I am aware of the jetlag and driving challenge.
