My Boyfriend and I are planning to do a self drive tour and would love to hear any advice as we plan the trip. We are to arrive into Dublin about 10am on Aug 30/13 and depart Dublin on Sept 7/13.
This is what we were thinking:
Day 1 - upon arrival pick up car at airport and head straight to Galway -spend the night
Day 2 - Galway for another night
Day 3 - Drive to Clare and spend the night
Day 4 - Drive to Kerry and stay for 2 nights
Day 5 - Kerry over night
Day 6 - Cork
Day 7 - Dublin
Day 8 - Dublin
With respect to driving, does this appear to be fast slow paced? We do not want to spend all our time in a car but would like to know things we should stop and see along the way from one place to another. Also, is there any of the above places we should stay for 1 night and what places are worthy of 2 nights overstay? Would anyone know the time to travel from one location to another?
How far is the drive from Cork to Dublin? And should we stop somewhere in between cork to Dublin for an overnight stay?
Any other feedback would be greatly appreciated.
