So I leave Colorado on June the 21st. Arrive in Dublin early on the 22nd. Will spend the 22nd and 23rd in Dublin. Leaving Dublin either the night of the 23rd or the morning of the 24th to Glendalough via bus. Spending the day of the 24th in Glendalough and day of 25th leaving either night of 25th or morning of 26th to Cork via train or bus(haven't checked). Spending day of 26th and 27th in Cork. Leaving either night of 27th or morning of 28th to Killarney again via train or bus. Spending day of 28th and 29th in Killarney. Leaving either night of 29th or morning of the 30th to Dingle probably via bus. Spending the day of the 30th and July 1st in Dingle. Leaving either night of 1st or morning of 2nd to Galway via whatever is available. Spending the day of the 2nd and 3rd in Galway. Following my routine here, I would leave Galway on the night of 3rd or morning of 4th to Dublin via train. BUT, I don't have to be in Dublin until the 6th, as I fly out on the 7th mid-morning. So I have the 4th and 5th to spend somewhere. I only want to spend the afternoon of the 6th in Dublin. So i'd like to leave from Galway on the morning of the 6th to Dublin. Question being should I stop in Kilkenny on my way to Cork? Or should I spend an extra day here and there? What do you all recommend I do with these two spare days? I very well may fall in love with one of my stops and stay an extra day, but is there one in particular I should plan an extra day for? Also, is it unrealistic to think I can get a train or bus in the evening to my next city and be able to find a hostel or is AM always better to plan on? As far as what I am doing when I get to each place, no itinerary there yet. I plan to talk to locals to see what they recommend. I also have a guide book coming in the mail. Yay! Thank you so much for your help everyone!!!! You have been great on all my questions!
