The plan is land in Dublin early Tuesday morning. We will take in the city, do the Guiness brewery tour, eat out etc. of course, we will spend the night there.
Wednesday we will get up bright and early to make the drive to Doolin! There we will take in the sights at the Cliifs of Moher, the pubs &music, and spend the night at a B & B there (hopefully near the coast)
Thursday we will depart for Lake Hotel at Killarney Lakes. We will stay there Thursday through Friday (2 nights) the plan here is to hike the trails, kayak, take a trip to the ring of Kerry etc.
Saturday morning we will make our way to Waterford to stay at the Waterford Castle for the night. We're hoping this can be a bit more relaxing (spa, gourmet dinner etc.)
Sunday morning we will drive back to Dublin for our afternoon flight home back to the U.S.
I think this works as we make the most of our limited time: Dublin city, small town/bed and breakfast in Doolin, nature and beauty in Killarney Lakes, and the castle experience in Waterford.
Looking for any tips, advice, or thoughts from anyone who either lives there or has traveled there before! Is waterford to dublin a short enough drive if we have a 3:30 pm flight? Are any of these drives too far? Does this trip make sense for the time we have? Any other recommendations or thoughts? Please share any and all thoughts!
Thanks in advance!
