Trip Report - southern route (8 days)

We made it! It was a fabulous trip, thank you so much to all who weighed in and offered suggestions.

Day 1 - Landed in Dublin, drove to Athlone - stayed in Athlone

Day 2 - Drove to Galway and did some shopping & sight-seeing - stayed in Lisdoonvarna

Day 3 - Cliffs of Moher and drove down along the coast with sight-seeing stops along the way - stayed in Killorglin

Day 4 - Explored Dingle Penninsula, drove down to Ahakista via Killarney National Park - stayed in Ahakista

Day 5 - Explored Schull (family history) and Mizen Head - stayed in Ahakista

It was a great mix of city and country, historical and modern, touristy sites and nature. We stayed in B&Bs in each area, which was a great choice both for the personalized experience and the price.

Did you manage to get to the cliffs of Moher while in Galway?

Yes - we spent all of Day 2 in Galway and then went to the Cliffs first thing on Day 3 and spent about half the day there. We really lucked out, it was a gorgeous day - sunny and warm, with fantastic views.
