Hello everyone! I appreciate any feedback! My husband and I are planning a 2 week trip to Ireland and looking at more of the West of Ireland with our last days in Dublin. So far, just in research mode at the moment, I could use feedback and places of interest with day trips.
Day 1: Fly in to Shannon and take a bus to Doolin.
Day 2: Doolin
Day 3: Ferry to Inishmore
Day 4: Inishmore
Day 5: Ferry and then bus to Galway city
Day 6: Galway City
Day 7: Pick up rental car, drive to Clifden
Day 8: Clifden
Day 9: Westport
Day 10: Westport
Day 11: Cong
Day 12: Cong
Day 13: return car, train to Dublin
Day 14 - 16 Dublin
Day 17: Fly home from Dublin
Any areas a "must" that I didn't put on the list? Any on the list that are a pass? Day trips? Must-see villages? Must-see drives?
Sidenote: I've been to Ancient East, Beara Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Kilkenny, and Slane area.
In this venture, we are looking to slow it down a bit with more walks, scenic: ocean, lakes, mountains; historical sites. While in Dublin, we are looking for a day trip to Howth and Newgrange(?!).
