Far too much driving! You do know that Bunratty Castle hotel is not "castle accommodation"? Popular only for wedding parties and people leaving on early flights from Shannon airport.

in my view like reply #1 you have planned way too much for 8 days and will spend the majority of your time driving and not staying anywhere long enough to enjoy it . better off maybe divivding your time between Dublin and the Galway and the the west......a suggestion would be

- 2 full days in Dublin - Guiness Storehouse, City Tour, Trinity College,

- drive to Galway and use as a base for 3 or 4 days...day trips to The Burren & Cliff of Moher, Aran Islands and Connemarra

- return to Dublin

enjoy your trip
