Your days are not yet in a logical order, and some are double listed.

Mayo should come between Sligo and Galway, and day 7 and day 9 are double listed.

Then Clare to Cork to Kerry to waterford?

Have you actually looked at a map yet? This needs some work on it!!

Round the island in 16 days should be possible but some things will be rushed.

Greetings Shannon F,

As fushcia suggests, pick up a map & a highlighter. I suggest you look to the right of this Forum site, the Top questions about Ireland.There is a wealth of info, from how to plan your trip to Ireland, to the most popular things to see & do. On Tripadvisor Dublin Forum, there is also a Top questions about Dublin.

Dublin Museums


I hope this info helps get you started.

Oh, so its not really a list of what you want to see at all, I think you should decide what you, your father and grandmother, want to see, not what I, or any other random person on the internet, want to see, they may be totally different things. most things on your list are ok, ,but they just need sorting into a sensible order.
