Excitedly planning a trip in July 2014 and will be travelling from Furbo (Galway) via coastal route to somewhere in/near Killarney for 3 nights (any suggestions B&B's, Pubs). We want to do 2 day trips; one driving the Ring of Kerry and whatever else we can fit in, and the other up to Limerick (Bunratty Castle) and then across to the Rock of Cashel before returning to base. Is this trip OK for a day trip or are we aiming to do too much?
From Killarney area, we then want to spend 2 nights somewhere before we drive back to Dublin. Any suggestions on where to stay and itinerary? We were thinking maybe Kilkenny OR a small town/village with a good pub where we could experience something more normal than the tourist towns/cities that to bulk of our trip will be.
