Please remind me why I should NOT drive from Killarney to Connemara in one day. See, we really wanted to stay in a castle for one night and the only one that seems to kind of fit with our trip (my husband was very excited about this idea and he gets outwardly exited about not a whole lot) is Ballynahinch Castle. It's just under 3 hours from Killarney to Galway City. But it's only FOUR hours up to the castle. Then we could totally take our time going back to Glaway the next day.
Remind me why this is a bad idea. No, really. Please. Please?
