We are 3 travellers planning one week (Wed-Wed) in Ireland. I have been to Dublin several times and to Galway once, but not the surrounding areas. The plan this time is to explore the west coast, however we are flying in and out of Dublin. I have created a sample itinerary as described below but would appreciate any tips, advice and/or suggestions from others who know the area(s) well! We will have a rental car and will stay in B&B's or hostels (budget accomodation).
Drive Dublin to Limerick, spend first night in Limerick.
Drive Limerick to Ennis. Spend some time in Ennis area and then head up to the cliffs of Moher later that day or could spend a night in Ennis if we really like it. (Am i crazy to skip Kerry? it just seems like too much for only a week to do all. Could possibly hit Killarney or Tiperary before Limerick?)
Drive to Galway. Spend 2 nights in Galway. Possibly make a trip over to the Aran islands (depending on weather).
Possibly hit a town in Mayo before heading back to Dublin Only if time allows.
Really appreciate your feedback!
