Hi, I am in the early planning stages of a 7-night trip to Ireland. Nothing has been booked yet, and I wanted to get some ideas about my itinerary for a trip in late August-early September:
Day 1: Flight from US to Dublin
Day 2: Arrive Early AM to Dublin; sightsee
Day 3: Dublin
Day 4: Leave Dublin, drive to Killarney, bum around the town, maybe go to Killarney National Park
Day 5: Ring of Kerry and Dingle (if time)
Day 6: Drive to Galway, bum around town
Day 7: Galway and Cliffs of Moher or Burren National Park
Day 8: Flight out of Shannon
I am sure I am missing a ton of sites by not stopping by Cork or Kilkenny...maybe we can hit them up on the way to Killarney?
Note, we are both in our 30's, no kids and enjoy city life, as well as quiet country-side. We enjoy going to see sites, but do not necessarily NEED to see anything...more go with the flow. We also enjoy eating good meals and drinking at casual locations (no clubs).
We are comfortable driving on the left-hand side of the road.
