Dingle to Doolin...via ferry or Limerick?

My first trip to Ireland has been magnificent so far, and I will write about it when I get home. Tomorrow we leave Dingle for Doolin, and I was wondering if it is better to go via ferry or up around Limerick?

Thanks for your help for this whole trip.

Take the ferry.

Its a fun trip and is close-ish to where you are.

Enjoy your day.

If you go past Limerick, you'll get to see a few more places, but it takes longer (obviously). One thing you'd get to see near Limerick, if you like that sort of thing, is Carrigogunnell Castle, just off the N69, after Clarina. It's not well signposted, but it was one of the most spectacular ruined castles I saw in Ireland.

Given a bit more notice I would have made some suggestions but you will be north of the Shannon by whichever route by now.

Actually have not left yet. But our host is suggesting via Limerick and given the weather we may do that

Yes main road to get there after lunch. The weather is grand up here.
