My wife and I and another couple will be visiting Ireland in June for two weeks. Based on a quick skim of travel guides, I listed the sights below that I'd like to see. I fully realize that this list is not do-able in two weeks. So I'm asking...what part of this list would you consider "not to miss", and which would you consider dispensable given our time constraints. I may not have the opportunity to return to Ireland, so I want to do as much of "the best" as possible while I am able. Thanks in advance for your help!!
Monastic ruins of Glendalough
Gardens of Powerscourt
Kilkenney/Rock of Cashel
Waterford (Drive through)
Kenare/Ring of Kerry (Willing to omit if it is true that Dingle is the "best peninsular trip").
Cliffs of Moher (?Galway bus tour with Burren included)
Aran Islands (Inishmore)...am ambivalent about this....low hanging fruit for omission
Connemara (Undecided re: Bus tour from Galway vs. car tour)
Portrush/Antrim Coast/Giant's Causeway/Rathlin Island (PUFFINS)
