I'm planning a 2 week trip for myself & spouse in 2013 - last week in May & First Week in June. I'd like to get some itmerary help. I need help mostly with logistics, such as when\where to rent a car, but any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.
My list of places to visit is as follows:
Aran Islands (one is OK- Inismore)
Cliffs on Moer
Ring of Kerry
Killarney National Park
Feel fee to suggest other convenient attractions:
I'd like to limit my use of rental car to one week & use only during my time in the Southwest.
Here is my preliminary itenerary:
Day 1 - Fly Into Dublin-Train to car rental location in Southwest (?), car to kenmare
Day 2 - Kenmare - Killarney National Park
Day 3 - Kenmare - Ring of Kerry
Day 4 - Kenmare - Beara Pennisula
Day 5 - Kenmare to Dingle
Day 6 - Dingle Pennisula
Day 7 - Dingle to Galway via cliffs of Moer - Return Car at Galway or Other location
Day 8 - Galway City
Day 9 - Galway Day Tour - Connemara
Day 10 -Galway Day Tour - Aran Island of Inismore
Day 11- Galway to Dublin Airport by Bus- Stay at Airport Property in Dublin
Day 12- Dublin
Day 13 - Dublin - Day trip?
Day 14 - Return Flight from Dublin (6 am)
OR I could reverse the route & go Dublin to Galway by Airport bus & pick up rental car, then do Southwest & return car to Galway & bus back to Dublin . Any opinions on which would be best?
Any other itinerary suggestions or comments?
