Best route from Shannon airport?

We will be driving to Dingle from Shannon airport and are wondering if it is best to take the southern route through Limerick, or should we go the more northern-western route and take the Killmer-Tarbert ferry? We prefer the least-busy route for our first day of driving on the left! (We arrive in Shannon at 9:30 a.m. on a Wednesday in June.)

The roads are better going through Limerick - and while you will meet traffic going through Limerick, IMHO it would be better.

You will also be able to stop in Adare Village (www.adarevillage.com) a tourist destination in itself.

When we were there we also took the Limerick route and it took us about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get from Shannon to Dingle. I heard that there was not much point in getting the ferry!

Last years, I always drove from Shannon to Adare and further on Killarney and Kenmare. I returned for visiting the Burren and Connemara, taking the ferry.
