My family and I (2 adults, 2 teens) will be heading to Ireland this June and I'd like some feedback on our itinerary. To give some context to our thoughts on the trip: It has been years since either my husband or I have been there, so details of distance and travel time are vague memories. The plan is to see some sights that we are all interested in and to visit the towns/villages/areas of our ancestors. We have a few "must do" items like Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and Ring of Kerry but we like to leave some time for what strikes our fancy or just "being" in a place (this is especially true of going to the places where our ancestors came from.)
Day 2: See ROK, Muckross, or Killarney NP.
Day 3: Drive to Ballyporeen and Cashel. Stay in Cashel.
Day 5 and 6: Explore Galway and Connemara area
Day 10: Fly out of Shannon
From my research the longest stretches of driving seem to be 2-3 hours. Is this correct? How far is the drive from Ennis to Shannon airport?
Your thoughts and feedback will be appreciated.
