This is my dream and first trip to Ireland. I have been reading different forums and Itineraries and still can't decide which direction to start. Here are the facts I have so far. I will be traveling with my husband, in and out of Shannon, I have 11 days to tour, I have rented an automatic to pick up at Shannon, will start my touring Oct 3rd. I def want to see Galway, Aran Islands, Connemara, cliffs, Ballyvaugham and the burrern,Dingle, ROK, Killarney national park and Ross Castle, Kenmare over to Kinsale, Blarney, Cashel, Adare and possibly if time permits Kilkenny and Dublin. I just don't know how to start. Should I go Shannon to Galway and head down the west and around or should I Start Shannon to Killarney do the ROK Dingle, Kinsale, cashel and do Galway at the end. Do I need to book every night at this time of year ? I want to relax on this trip and not have to make a destination because it is already booked. Can I wing it a little. My last night is booked in Burranty that is all I have booked so far. I do know where I want to stay in all the places I mentioned, I just don't know which route to go. Also am I realistic in all I want to see in 11 days. Thank you so much in advance I need a push to get me going so I can finalize this trip.
