Ireland in September with 11 year old...itinerary suggestion

We are looking for suggestions for itineraries and general travel suggestions. We will be attending a family wedding in Donegal in September and will be traveling with an 11 year old. We loved our last trip, but that was pre-child and we went from Kinsale to Doolin playing golf, hiking, etc. We are open to flying into Shannon or Dublin. We are also open to Northern Ireland. We will have a block of four days and a block of two/three days before and after the wedding. Our son is an active, nature loving child. Thanks for your suggestions!

Hi KETBI

How wonderful, travelling to Ireland for a family wedding - that will be a fantastic introduction to Ireland for your son. Lots and lots for an active 11 year old to do in the North West.

Take some surfing lessons in Sligo as mentioned above -

Hike to the top of Knocknarea where Queen Maeve is buried -

Lots and lots more to see and do, if you need more help just post. Have fun planning :-)
