My husband and I are driving from Kilkenny to Cobh to Kinsale to Killarney in one day. We plan to drive through Cobh, lunch in Kinsale then on to Killarney. Would you recommend taking a coastal route via Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Bantry, Glengarriff, Kenmare to Killarney (3+ hours) or take the inland route via Macroom to Killarney (1hr. 34 min via N22). We have 3 nights in Killarney. Our instinct is the coastal route will be more scenic, but the DVD shows Rick Steves taking the inland route.
Thanks for your help!
