I'm traveling from California to Ireland. My tentative plan is to arrive in Dublin on the 14th of July at 10:30, stay in Kilkenny on that day and go on to stay in Dingle the 15th and 16th, return to stay in Dublin the 17 and 18th, departing to Switzerland on the 19th.
Is Kilkenny to Dingle too far to travel in one day?
Is Dingle proper just too touristy in July?
How long will it take to get back to Dublin from Dingle?
Is it worth an extra $165 Euro worth to return the care there and fly to Dublin, instead of driving back?
