My wife and I am planning on a week in Ireland ending on the day before Easter. We are planning a basic itinerary, as we will be driving, and are interested in your comments. We will be arriving in Cork and leaving from Galway (airports).
About us: We are interested in scenery, historical sights, and being outdoors. We realize this plan has an hour or two (or three) of driving per day, but we like that if we are seeing things/stopping along the way. (We wouldn't want to drive hours just to get to our lodging, then not see anything that is there.)
Day 1: Leave Cork for Iveragh Peninsula.... making a brief stop in Killarney (a short hike in the mountains?) Staying somewhere on the peninsula ...Waterville/Cahersiveen?
Day 2: Continuing around the Ring of Kerry up to Dingle. Stay in DIngle
Day 3: Finish Dingle Peninsula..stay somewhere near Tralee
Day 4: From Tralee, over the Talbert-Killimer ferry, up to Cliffs of Moher/ Burren. Stay in Doolin/Ballyvaughan/other ideas?
Day 5: Quick drive up to Galway and spend that day doing a Connemara loop (Craigh Patrick) This is Good Friday.
Day 6: Exploring Galway... We fly out at 7pm.
We would love to hear any advice, warnings, or recommendations you might have about these plans. Thanks a bunch!
