We will be in Cork in September for my wife to attend a professional meeting. We plan to fly in and out of Shannon and will be able to have four full days to make it down to Cork.
I will be free to wander on my own for the four days of the seminar and she will be able to join in some group tours as part of the event during this time. I intend to see Kinsale, Cobh and possibly The Rock of Cashel during that time.
I am photography geek and tend to spend a great deal of time shooting scenic areas rather than trying to cover as much ground as possible in a day. Plus, we like to hike and explore a bit as well. So… slower is better but our time here is limited on this trip.
Before the seminar, we want to explore the Killarney NP and the west coast and hoping for some input on this plan….
Day 1 - Arrive in Shannon and drive down to Dingle.
Day 2 - Drive Dingle Peninsula. Stay in Dingle
Day 3 - Visit Killarney NP on the way to Kenmare.
Day 4 - Drive the Ring of Kerry. Stay in Kenmare.
Day 5- on to Cork.
Does this sound about right or should I readjust my time allocations and/or cut something out?
Would another town be better suited as a base? I hear mixed things about Killarney but would consider staying there if the additional driving would be outweighed by the convenience or fewer lodging changes.
