I am flying into Dublin at the end of August and flying out of Shannon and have 10 wonderful days. On my first trip 10 years ago, I explored Dublin and then we took the bus to Waterford, Cork City and then to Killarney and saw this beautiful place, Dingle but did not get to explore. I am returning by myself to celebrate a big birthday and explore new areas.
Since I don't want to back track, I wanted to take the train from the Dublin Airport to Belfast for 2 to 3 nights based on the feedback I get here.
Then I want to take the train directly to Galway and looks like it will bring me back to Dublin and directly to Galway or I might have to change at the airport. I want to stay a minimum of 3 night, should it be 4?
Then how do I get to Dingle for my remaining time and from there to the Shannon airport where I will stay at the Park Inn for a 9am flight.
Should I do Dingle first and then go to Galway and get back to Shannon on public transportation?
Thank you for your advise.
