We will be flying into Dublin from US on 8/19 (7am arrival) and driving directly to Doolin (looping back to Dublin for the end of our trip).
Upon arrival in Doolin, we planned to relax, go to a pub, hear some music, and spend the night at Doolin Activity Lodge. On the morning of 8/20 we planned to do a boat tour of the Cliffs of Moher and then head on to Dingle, where we have reservations at Castlewood House for the night of 8/20.
There is a glitch in our plans, however... we went to book the noon sailing on Doolin2Aran ferries and were bumped to 3pm due to tidal patterns. So, I am assuming that there is no noon sailing.
So, my question is- is it advisable to take the 3pm tour, which is supposed to last an hour, and then headed on the road to Dingle? Or is this too late to be heading on the road for that journey? Any alternative suggestions would be appreciated. We were looking forward to seeing the cliffs by boat and would hate to miss out.
Thanks for your help!
