I have finally purchased airfare into and out of Dublin for an 8 night trip in late April / early May with my husband and my parents. While we are into checking out Dublin, it is not at the top of our list. My thought was to land in Dublin (early - around 5am) and take the bus from Dublin out to Galway. Once in Galway we plan to rent a car. I'm wondering how this general itinerary sounds:
Sunday morning - Galway (take bus from Dublin airport)
Monday - Galway
Tuesday - Thursday - base ourselves out of Clifden
Friday - Saturday - Dublin
Sunday - depart from Dublin
Are 3 nights in the Clifden area too much? Considering this is a first visit for all four of us, is there a must-do that I'm missing? Any advice is appreciated.
