Help with my itinerary please.

Thanks to you guys I'm trying to eliminate one nighters Mid-May next year. Just 2 middle age married active folks. So here it is. Round trip out of Dublin.

2 nights in Dublin

1 night in Kilkenny. Stopping at the Russborough house for some Falkonry on the way down.

2 nights in Kinsale. Hubby wants to golf Old Head.

2 nights in Kenmare. Via Wild Atlantic Way. next day Beara Peninsula.

2 nights in Killarney. via Gap of Dunloe. Ross Castle, Muckross house, torc waterfall and maybe horseback ride Killarney National Park.

2 nights in Dingle. Slea Head and Connors Pass.

1 night in Doolin via ferry. Maybe stop by and check out Loophead.

Pub every night of course.

Ok. this is where I'm having trouble. Drive up to Westport for 2 nights. Bike the Great Western Greenway and maybe check out Achill Island OR Drive up to Clifden for one night then one night in Westport. OR two nights in Galway. OR head out to Bunratty/ Limerick. OR spend more time in the places I just left OR Galway 1 night and head back to Dublin for one night. Thanks in advance.

I would stay in the County Clare area, particularly in the month of May.

Even if you miss out on the Burren in Bloom Festival in May 2019, the Burren will be bloom in any case.







Plenty of golf in County Clare, too:


And, some hiking and biking trails here:


Absolutely nothing the matter with your other options' except you will send a lot of time getting to them!

Others will chime in with their options: stand by.

I agree with Uasal >> Absolutely nothing the matter with your other options' except you will send a lot of time getting to them<<Excellent Links provided by Uasal, I have spent a full week out on the Loop Head Peninsula between Carrigaholt & Cross, No t.v., radio, phone or internet & loved it..This past year I spent part of a week staying in Ennis, (I visit very frequently) & did day trips with an elderly friend to Lough Derg, Mountshannon, Scarriff, Tuamgraney, Ballina, (Tipperary) & down to Kilkee.

Just Adding that Ennis has accommodations & eateries to fit every budget.

The Island of Ireland...Taken in slowly...Savored....Leave time to explore...You will see something along the way or hear of someplace and want to stop & linger for a bit...You will be so happy you had that extra time on your side.
