Coming from Oz. Have a week in Ireland with flight booked into Shannon on 7 May. That's it although only have 7 - 10 days and thinking fly out of Dublin but option is still open to depart elsewhere. Doing self drive as 50+ couple with elderly mother along also but not wanting to miss any fun stuff. Can tuck mum away and head out for the night if necessary.
Thinking (with no logical reasoning other than viewing map) 2nights Shannon, 1 night Kenmore, 1 night Cork, 2 nights Waterford, 1 night Dublin. All have been to Dublin before so not wanting to see a lot there.
No real knowledge of Ireland so any ideas of 'must see' really appreciated.
