Kilkenny to Bantry--itinerary help?

We're setting off from just south of Kilkenny on our second day in Ireland (Sunday, August 31) and have accommodations booked in Bantry.

Enroute we were hoping to visit:

Rock of Cashel

Cahir Castle

Kinsale

Drombeg Stone Circle

Is this possible or advisable? We have 3 nights in Bantry but plan full days with Beara and Mizen and perhaps part of Sheep's Head for those days.

Any advice is appreciated.

Two of them are fine. Three is possible with an early start and late finish.

You could incorporate Drombeg Stone Circle into your day in Mizen.

Hello. May I suggest that you visit the ROC, which takes about an hour, visit Cahir castle from there, which also takes an hour, have lunch in Cahir, and then head straight for Bantry, and nice town with gorgeous scenery. It would be a longish day, but not brutal, and you would see two great sites without feeling wasted when you get to Bantry. You could always take in Drombeg when you visit Mizen Head. Something to consider. Hope this helps, and enjoy.

It does help. Thanks. Even though we've driven throughout Scotland and England this will be our first full day and with jet lag factored in, I was afraid we might be exhausted from the drive. First time in Ireland so trying to do it all of course!
