We are having a week in Ireland with a car, Dublin- Galway - Inishere - Connemara - Roundstone for the first 5 nights. Our plan was to drive down to the Dingle peninsular and spend some time there before flying out of Cork, but unfortunately after we had the above bookings confirmed we had to cut the rest of our time short and now only have two nights between staying at Roundstone and flying out of Cork at 10.40 am.
We are Australians and can't easily say 'well, we'll do that next time'! as there might never be another chance to visit Ireland, so we'd still like to fit in seeing the Dingle peninsular if that is possible.
The plan was to set off from Roundstone ( morning of 21st June) and play it by ear, seeing what we felt like on the way, and seeing how far we get, finding places to stay on 21st and 22nd before flying out of Cork on 23rd. (Flight booked)
My questions are - is it madness to try to fit in the Dingle peninsular? Should we be satisfied with all the wild coastline we have seen around the Connemara peninsular and look for something else?
What places are really worth investigating along the way?
Is finding accommodation possible on the day at this time of year? Though usually I like to plan everything, I don't know how long it will take to drive places so don't want to be locked in.
If we were to book ahead, what places would be spaced well to cover this distance??
Thanking all you experts in anticipation..
