Best towns as base for different regions

We fly into Cork, rent a car, stay in Kinsale then make our way to the following regions, departing after 12 days from the Dublin Airport.

First, Beara Peninsula and Ring of Kerry for 2 or 3 nights.Do you recommend staying in Kenmare,Killarney,Skeem? What is a convienent town for Dingle Peninsula exploration? Dingle? Tralee? Next is Clare County. How about Clifden, Westport,Doolin? Other suggestions? Next stop is Connemara to do the Loop, and see Inishbofin. Is Clifden a convienent place to stay? Would Galway be better? Centralized locations are best, since we want to minimize the driving time for our day trips. Thank you!

Kenmare is a good base for Beara and the "Ring" from There drive round Dingle on the way to Ennis which is the best Touring base for Clare. Clifden is a good Touring base for Connemara, But,, where are you heading from there as you are over an hour from Galway and the motorway links to DUB or SNN

Thank you for your help! After Connemara we will be headed to Dublin for two nights before returning to the U.S. But first we will will stay over one night in the Wicklow mountains. Will the drive be too draining ? Should we stop somewhere more in the middle before the Wicklow Mountains?
