10 days in Ireland in May - Itenerary Advice

We will be traveling to Ireland in late May for 10 days. We will be flying into and out of Dublin. So far we are planning on staying 2 nights in Dublin then traveling to Kilkenny for 2 nights and then to Dingle Peninsula for a few days and then head back to Dublin. We definitely want to make a trip to the Cliffs of Moher on our way back to Dublin. We are looking for any advice on places to stay or stop and visit and any travel routes/ itinerary suggestions.

Any advice is appreciated :)

Galway is a good place to stop for a night or two - head there from Dingle, then head to Dublin after Galway.

Hi Melody, warm greetings from Ireland.
The cliffs are definitely worth seeing, but are they worth going to see on a drive from Dingle to Dublin??
Id say ideally not, its a very long drive. Better to stay overnight somewhere like Doolin or Galway. In saying that, it is possible to do it in a day, but there is the issue of driver fatigue and the stress of fitting it all in, it is a holiday after all!

Id drop one night in Kilkenny and add a night in Galway or Doolin or Ennis.
Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help, its my patriotic duty! :)
