Ireland RV itinerary help

Aloha! Traveling to Ireland from Hawaii in March. I was hoping for some help on an RV itinerary. We will be in Belfast and the Antrim Coast for several days and then planning to drive to Howth for overnight. From there I am having trouble figuring things out. Have about three days. Would appreciate any input or ideas!

March 20th, Set: (But doesn't have to be!) Dublin (Howth) to Kilkenny, Kilkenny to Cashel, overnight Cashel

Up in the air, March 21st:

Cashel to Killarney NP, overnight Killarney


Cashel to Dingle, Dingle Peninsula, overnight somewhere here


Cashel to Cobh/Kinsale, overnight somewhere here


Cashel to Portmagee and Kerry Cliffs, overnight here (Could we go to both Killarney and Kerry Cliffs in one day?)


Cashel to Cliffs of Moher, overnight Doolin or somewhere near

March 22nd:
Wherever we are to Kilkea Castle Hotel in Co. Kildare where we have an overnight reservation. Would obviously like to see/do something along the way! We can cancel this reservation also, if something more interesting crops up!

March 23rd:
Have to return the RV near Dublin Airport by 12:00 pm.

Rest of March 23rd:

March 24th:
Dublin, flight out in late evening

For context, we are two adults and two teenagers, 13 and 16. We have done many RV trips in the US and abroad and don't mind long drives, but trying to stay under 3 hours a day on this trip, if possible. We don't have any "must do" items, just want to enjoy what we do get a chance to see/do and hope to return another time to see more. Would really appreciate any help someone could provide!

RV stands for recreational vehicle, otherwise known as a motor home.

MEC, I assume you know that the roads in Ireland are frequently quite narrow, not more than 1.5 car widths wide. So driving will be slower than you might otherwise imagine. Do you know whether there are places to camp in the towns you mentioned? That might be the determining answer. I believe there is a campground outside of Killarney and also at Inch Beach on the way to Dingle.
