Hi, I have been reading alot of posts. They are all so helpful and interesting.
We are landing at Shannon (Friday, Sept.11) then going to Doolin for 2 days.Either Roadford House or Dalys House. We will tour the area close around there.
Then on Sunday we want to either drive to Dingle (taking the Ferry) and staying there,hopefully at Emlagh Lodge, Sun. and Mon. nights.
Then on to Kenmare, Maybe staying in Clonakilty, Glendine Irish Home or Bay View House, Tues. night.
Then on to Kenmare, staying Wed. and Thurs. nights, hopefully at Virginias. Of course touring all those areas.
Then we will drive back to Bunratty (we fly out of Shannon Sat. at 9am.- We will stay fri. night at either Dunaree Guest House or Bunratty Castle Mews.
My main question is: Are Sun. and Mon. in Dingle the best days,are the shops, pubs, sites, etc. all open for business those days. Also I see the marathon will be held that Sat., but it shouldnt be so busy by Sun. Or should we turn our trip around and go from Doolin to Kenmare first, and spend Wed. and Thurs. in Dingle? Or does it matter in the least?
Also how does this all sound?
I love planning our trip and am so excited at all I see abour Ireland. Thanks Gail
