I lived in Galway for quite some time... taking a 9day/9 night trip start and finish in Dublin... Never done an actual road trip before..
Please someone let me know if this is OK..
Arrive at 6am (Yes, I know about jetlag but I fly internationally all the time and this trip doesn't affect me at all) - Rental car pickup and drive to Longford to stay w/ friends... Possible detour to Newgrange on the way to Longford - I know it's just 90 minutes or so.
Day 2 - Galway (2 nights - sightseeing, short road trips to connemara or aran islands...depends on other travelers needs)
Day 4 midday - Galway to either Dingle or Killarney (This day will be a Monday...FYI) - Evening in either Dingle or Killarney
*** This is where I am torn... Do I spend 2 nights in Dingle or 2 nights in Killarney? We are thinking of doing a horseback ride ...
Should we do 3 nights down there? 2 in Killarney and 1 in Dingle?
I want to be back in Galway on either Thurs or Fri for 1 last night and then drive to Dublin Saturday for a day of sightseeing.
I just don't know if it's too much driving. We can get up quite early and go - Also not sure about visiting Dublin w/ a rental car. I know it's hard to park there....
Please let me know what you think! Suggestions appreciated!
