How about spending a day on Inishmore? That was the highlight of our trip to the Galway area.

We spent one day touring Galway city itself; the historical walking tour that started at the TO was excellent and the river cruise lovely.

We arrived in Galway from the Burren, which was fascinating--especially e 3 hour guided hike with Shane Connolly.

Connemara was also wonderful--hiking in the National Park, Kylemore Abbey, Killary fjord boat trip.

One of the very few things we wished we had skipped in our 34 day trip to Ireland was Inish Mor. It was 3 hours of travel round trip from Galway and just not worth it at all.

Just to be clear, are you asking what to do in Galway or Dublin? seems you have two days in each and this is in the Dublin forum ;-)

Galway: Day 1 Connemara, Day 2 The Burren and Cliffs of Moher. Galway itself, you can stroll about in evening time as it is a small place.

Do you think we would have time to visit Ennis and Limerick?

It would be cutting things tight to visit both AND see the Cliffs and The Burren properly. It might be possible to do Burren, Cliffs and Ennis, though it would make for a long day.
