Hi, I am new to the forum. I have been reading hours of posts and I’m still unsure how to handle the first 6 nights of a 3 week trip.
My son and his wife (late twenties) join us for the first week and I want to make sure we hit some key areas for them without being overwhelmed with driving. They love outdoors/nature but a mix of small town pubs would be fun.
We will have a rental car but I don’t like the idea of driving in Galway and one of my biggest reasons to possibly not go there.
We already booked flights into Shannon and out of Cork. I may have made a mistake flying them out of Cork but it is set. I also realized it is advised not to have 1 night stays but this is my rough itinerary.
arrive Shannon (May 2019)
galway - 1 night
doolin - 1 night
dingle - 3 nights (taking the Shannon ferry)
kinsale - 1 night
depart Cork airport
1- Should we drop Galway? either add a night to Doolin or add Kenmare?
2 - Should we make Dingle just 2 nights?
I am stressing to the point of not feeling excited about the trip so any help is really appreciated.
