I am arriving at the Dublin airport 2:45pm and driving to Kilkenny. Can anyone tell me about how long a trip that will be with normal traffic?
per google maps, at the time of day you arrive, you should expect a 3 hr trip
Are you planning to drive ( on the 'other' side of the road) after an overnite flight from the western US?
For your arrival day https://www.dublincoach.ie/services/dublin-coach-journey-planner.php may be a better option.
I don't think it's a 3 hour trip. Once you are in your car, it should be maybe an hour and 45 minutes. It's mostly along a really good highway, so it should be a relatively smooth trip.
Thank you for the feedback..helpful in deciding whether to go directly or wait til morn
