You seem like a helpful bunch and I've been reading many of the posts and they have helped tremendously in preparing. But some last minute changes are making me have to chop off almost two days from my self-drive vacation (a day plus switch from evening to late morning flight).
I want a relaxing vacation which means strolling along the sites, learning some history and getting to know the area. I'm trying to avoid the mega-tourist traps, but still want something that is historic/famous. Since I'm traveling solo I don't want to end up in the middle of the nowhere alone and stranded.
My first few days are being spent in a book convention in Dublin. After that I have Monday/Tuesday/Wed/Thurs to travel with a re-scheduled flight now on Friday morning.
Of these items -- which should I drop or keep? I'm having trouble picking amongst them, but I know something needs to get removed, especially when the sights are only open the same hours, 9-5.
Rock of Cashel
Ring of Kerry
Cliffs of Moher.
Any suggestions? I'm especially thinking that this may be a battle between a day on Ring of Kerry or a day on Dingle Peninsula.
