Finalizing Travel To: Dublin,Galway,Dingle,Cork,

My wife and I are finalizing our trip to Ireland and have the following questions. Any feedback is much appreciated.

1. Any must see sights/stops while driving from Dublin to Galway?

2. We are planning on going to the Aran islands for one day, but if weather is bad we may stay in Galway for the day. Any backup idea's while in Galway keeping in mind that we are going to the cliffs of Moher the next day?

3. Any must see sights/stops on our drive from Galway to Dingle (via Cliffs of Moher?)

4. We are staying in Dingle on Monday and Tuesday night and Castlemartyr Thursday. We need to find a place in the South for Wednesday night and would appreciate any advice?

5. Finally, is it better to visit the Jameson distillery in Dublin or the one near Midleton?

Thank you so much for your comments!!!

Andrew

Not clear on how many days you have in total. Looks like one night Dublin, two nights Galway before moving on to Dingle?

Area west of Galway http://goo.gl/maps/uqIi8 South of Galway http://goo.gl/maps/e4gVk might be better spending your free night in these larger areas before spending your 2 nights on a small peninsula. See Jamesons Middleton.

Excellent, Thank you!

We are planning 1 day/night in Dublin, 2 days & nights in Galway & Dingle, and two days/nights near Cork but still TBD.

Thanks!

If you can't make it to Inismor, a trip around Connemara would be nice.

A drive out the Sky road from Clifden is always worthwhile

Clonmacnoise, definitely. Between Cliffs of Moher and Dingle, I'd go the coast and take the Killrush ferry.

The Midleton Jameson Experience is better. The tour goes through the warehouse, and you can get a portion of the angel's share.
