3 days in Ireland

I know that sounds ridiculous, but that is all we've got. I know we want to see the Cliffs of Moher, but what else is a must see?
We love countryside views, not so much museums on this short jaunt.

Many thanks!

Fly into Shannon, rent a car, see County Clare staying in Ennis. If you must use Dublin airport pick up car at the airport and do Wicklow Mountains staying in Kilkenny, skipping Dublin. Not enough time for Dingle. The area around Trim is also very appealing and closer to the airport for dropping off the car. But if you tried to do it the day if departure the traffic would probably be really bad. The passage tombs were good not great, but the town of Trim is really nice with good hiking. Also, it would help to have some context here, are you flying from London, Seattle, Boston, etc.? It makes a big difference for determining what is practical.

With 3 days and wanting to see the Cliffs of Moher, I would fly in and out of Shannon, go the Cliffs, stay in Galway and visit areas around Galway (Aran Islands, Connamera etc)
