The wife and I will be arriving in Dublin, Ireland at 9 AM on Sunday, November 10, 2013. We leave Thursday, November 14 at 11:00 AM. We would love to see Dublin, Cork, Killarney and the Cliffs of Moher in this time frame. We arent much for museums, so most of our time will be spent seeing the main sights in those areas along with some dining, drinking and shopping.
We were thinking of powering through our day on Sunday when we arrive and spending it in Dublin. Perhaps checking into our hotel early and taking a power nap before heading out to see the city and enjoying some dinner and a pint.
I was looking into taking the train from Dublin to Cork at 7 AM on Monday morning which gets us into Cork by 9:35 AM. After spending the later morning and early afternoon in Cork we can catch a train from Cork to Killarney at 4:55 PM which places us in Killarney by 6:15 PM. We would have some dinner, enjoy a drink, maybe walk around the town that evening for a bit.
Where I am getting challenged with the itinerary is how to enjoy some time in the Ring of Kerry, but still getting to the Cliffs of Moher all while still trying to spend more time in Dublin on Wednesday.
We are ok with using trains, buses, taxis etc...we dont plan on renting a car. Does anyone have any ideas how we can swing this?
Monday- Dublin to Cork to Killarney
Tuesday- KIllarney to Cliffs of Moher to Dublin (or should we stay overnight near the Cliffs and take the train back to Dublin on Wednesday AM)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
