My husband and I will be traveling to Ireland in May of 2014 and I'm looking for some help with our itinerary. Like most, we're starting way ambitious.. so I'm looking for help on what to cut.
We start in Dublin for three nights. We really want to explore/hike the Wicklow Mountain area/Glendalough, so one of those days will be spent doing that probably via day trip (we won't have a car til the 4th day), but we'll return to Dublin that evening. So it'll be:
Day 1: Arrive in Dublin early morning. Sight-seeing.
Day 2: Night in Dublin. Day trip to Wicklow if weather is decent or more sight-seeing.
Day 3: Night in Dublin. Which ever we didn't do the previous day.
Day 4: Leave Dublin and head towards___?___ for the night. On the drive down, we'd love to see the Rock of Cashel and yes, I know it's touristy.. but we want to see Blarney Castle grounds. We don't care about kissing the stone though. After that we'd check into a B&B in ___?____ and call it a night. I don't know if it's possible to tackle both of those in one day plus the driving. We'll have been three days sans car, so it's not being in the car I'm worried about, but timing.
Day 5: Leave ___?___ and head towards Killarney for two nights B&B. On the drive to Killarney/that day we'd like to Drive the ring of Kerry before stopping for the evening. Any other suggestions?
Day 6: Stay in Killarney (2nd night). Would it be possible to see Gap of Dunloe/any other suggestions in the morning? We were thinking it might be neat to do this sunset sea kayak at 6:30 in Dingle irishadventures.net/kayaking/activitiesseaka… -- has anyone done this? Worth it?
Day 7: Leave Killarney, head towards Galway for the night. On the drive to Galway see Cliffs of Moher. Arrive in Galway for the night.
Day 8: Afternoon flight out of Shannon
Flight to dublin and out of shannon is already book, so we can't change that. Just need to figure out if what's between those two points is possible.
Thanks for any and all help! :)Edited: 17 September 2013, 05:06
