I’ve read lots of the discussions and adapted my plans already. But I’d be interested in feedback on my current itinerary before I start booking pls. I’m a single female 50, fit and with a car. I enjoy walking, cooking and prefer less busy places than manic touristy cities.
I have 3 nights in Dublin with a friend then have decided to fly to Killarney (March 21) and get the car there to save some long driving. I will arrive 1.40pm and am looking to stay at either Killarney Park or The Brehon (or elsewhere?) for the 21st and 22nd.
I don’t want to drive all of the ROK alone but rather do some hiking, visit Muckross/Ross Tower etc.
on the 23rd I will drive to Dingle (about 90mins??) and do Slea Head Drive. I’d love recommendations for Dingle accommodation? Something local in town, maybe a nice B&B?
I’d like to have a horse ride in Dingle (if there’s a better location please let me know!) and then drive to Lahinch in the afternoon (3.5 hours?)
So the 24/25th I will stay in Lahinch and visit the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren.
On the 26th I planned to drive to the Galway area (probably not stay in Galway itself?) and have 26/27 visiting Connemara and the surrounds (Ashford Castle, Clifden). If this is too much for this timing please shout.
On the 28th I will drive back to Dublin to be at the airport by 6pm (9pm flight out). Realistically I’d leave around 2pm to give myself plenty of time.
So: should I drop any of these locations and hub from less places? Does anyone have views on the best location to have a horse ride (not just a plodding trail walk but somewhere intermediate riders could have a nice safe ride)
And finally any accom ideas for Lahinch, Dingle and around the Galway area would be fabulous thanks.
