Need help with itinerary suggestions for a week in Ireland. My friend and I are planning to go to Ireland in the Spring - (April). I've been to Ireland on a Rick Steves tour a couple years ago and want to go again.
My friend wants to see Cliffs of Moher and possibly the Aran Islands (weather permitting). I was thinking if we flew into Shannon we could get a bus and stay in Galway or that area for 3 nights.
(We looked into getting a rental car - insurance is so high it isn't worth it).
The 2nd stop we want to go to is Dingle - but with public transportation - having to take 3 buses might not be worth it. (I stayed there on my tour for 3 nights and would like to go back).
I was thinking maybe the 3rd stop could be Kinsale and then fly out of Cork. That would take at least 2 buses to Cork, then we could get a taxi from Cork to Kinsale. - or maybe a place near Shannon - any other suggestions?
Is 3 nights in Galway, 3 nights in Dingle and 2 nights in Kinsale feasible with public transportation or can you give me any other ideas?
