We will be in Ireland next month (in May) for 7 days for our first visit to the country. We will have a rental car. Towards the end of our Ireland vacation, we are spending 2 nights in Galway. We are allocating a full day for driving to the Connemara region from Galway, starting early in the morning (say by 8:30 am), and returning to Galway by evening. An ambitious driving itinerary is given below :
3. Drive on Sky Road and have lunch at Clifden
5. Drive to Monnenmore; detour to Cong, and then back to Moneenmore
I have a feeling that the above is probably too much to fit into one day. Need advice on which portions to cut out, and what to add if anything. Thanks in advance for your help.
