After continued reading in our guide books, we have decided to stick to options 3 or 4. Below is our current planned itinerary for option 3. I have a few concerns and would like some feedback if anyone is willing. Do I need to worry about sites being closed on Sundays? As scheduled, we will see Dublin, Aran Islands, and Jacobite Train on Sundays. Other feedback on the itinerary is also welcome.
Besides my Sunday concerns, there are two days that I worry will be too long.
Day 3, we plan to travel from Dublin to Kenmore, through Kilkenny and Rock of Cashel. Is this doable or is it too much for a day?
Day 16, Drive from Edinburgh to Toriden through Sterling and Inverness, again is this too much in a day?
