This is our very first time in Ireland and a dream coming true. Although a seasoned traveler, I'm wondering whether our itinerary is too aggressive as there is so much to see and do everywhere. Any suggestions on what we should cut out or what to add would be great!
We've booked flights to Dublin and arriving late at night, staying that night north of Kilkenny. We then plan to continue to Kenmare, plan on visiting the Border Collie live demo at the sheep farm, continue for sightseeing to Killarney and the National Park there, but returning to Kenmare for the night. We then take off for the Ring of Kerry but I think we're skipping going to the famous island there (Skellig) as a landing is not guaranteed (or should we go for it???). Then continue to Dingle and spend 2 nights there (tour of Dingle Pensinula during that day). Continuing to Cliffs of Moher, stopping en route at various castles/ruins (any recommendations here) to just south of Galway, where we will be spending the night. Next morning, going back east towards Trim (sightseeing en route during the day). Spending 2 nights in Trim to visit the Hills of Tara, Valley of the Boyne, and especially the famous Toombs there. I know this is a lot of driving but we've already cut out Northern Ireland. Any suggestions would be appreciated! I should add that we're flying from Germany to Dublin, so jetlag is past :)
