I am in the very early stages of planning the itinerary for our first trip to Ireland in May of 2016. There will be 4 of us (two couples) traveling together.
Our plan would be to fly into Dublin and spend the first night there. From there we would drive to Cork and spend two nights, then two nights in Kerry and one night in Co. Clare. We would then depart for home from Shannon.
Some of the questions I have are -
1) Is this a realistic plan?
2) What sites should we see along our way?
3) Is it better to take an inland route or a costal route?
4) Since our trip isn't until 2016, when should we start making our reservations?
Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
