Planning a short trip to Ireland as part of a great deal we got on flights to the UK for Mid October. We will be driving on the left side for the first time and are a bit nervous about Irish driving so would love any feedback!
Monday 10/9- Morning flight from LGW to Cork, Pick up rental car, Blarney Castle, drive to Killarney. Stay in Killarney or Kenmare. (another option would be to return to Cork from Blarney and stay there, then push to Killarney in the morning but that seems like it would be too rushed. Are we really missing out on anything in Cork if we mostly bypass?)
10/10- Killarney national park, drive to Dingle via Slea head, stay in Dingle
10/11 - Drive to Galway via Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, stay in Galway.
10/12 - In Galway, option for day trip to Aran Islands or Conmerra, stay in Galway
10/13 - Depart Galway for Dublin early, return rental car, afternoon/overnight in Dublin
10/14 - Day in Dublin, late evening flight to LGW
I realize we only scratch the surface in each of these areas, but we are hoping to see as many highlights as possible. We are fairly young and will have already made it through the worst of jet lag so not as concerned about some long days, but if there's anything we are far too optimistic about, or something close by we are missing I would love to hear about it.
