As I read the many TA posts and evaluate my options, I'm wondering if I should still try to keep Kilkenny in my itinerary or if it's taking on too much. Hoping for trip in June 2011...maybe 8-9 days total trip time. I really want to see the western area of Connemara/Burren/Cliffs of M. and also include the Dingle/Killarney area as well. Wondering if Galway would be a good swap for my original desire to go to Kilkenny? That way, I'm focusing more on the West w/o having to detour all the way over to Kilkenny. On the other hand, Kilkenny/Cashel sounds interesting....help! Too many places I really want to see, and working with the knowledge that it may be many years till I can afford to come back for a second trip. Need your expert advice!
