Itinerary advice needed

My husband and I will be spending 17 nights in Ireland in May. We have already booked the first 12 nights (in the south and west) and the last 2 (in Dublin). We need help in deciding where to go after Clifden, in the Connemara (where we are spending 2 nights) and before Dublin. Any suggestions? We will have a car.

So you have one more night? I suggest Westport, a lovely town in Co. Mayo.

Yes, thanks, I was thinking about Westport. We actually have 3 more nights. Another thought: Would it be worth driving up to Donegal?

It would be a lot of driving at the end of your trip. If you'll be returning to Ireland someday, I'd save Donegal for that trip.

I would divide the 3 nights among Westport and Sligo.

If you stay in Westport you can do a great day drive on Achill Island - One of my favorite spots in ireland!

Also, if you have 3 nights have you thought of spending any in Galway? It could be a good place before heading back to Dublin bc it's right off the major highway back !

If you need rec's there, PM me, I lived there for a long time.
