My husband and I are going to Ireland in August, and we have 5 full days, 6 nights. Here's what I was thinking, and I'd love some advice.
Day 1: Arrive Dublin around 5pm, probably just eat and try and get adjusted to local time.
Day 2: Sight seeing in Dublin, night in Dublin
Day 3: Sight seeing in Dublin, night in Dublin
Day 4: Rent car, drive to Rock of Cashel, spending the night in Dingle
Day 5: The Burren? Cliffs of Moher? Spending night at Ballynahinch Castle in Recess
Day 6: Explore around Ballynahinch, arrive Dublin late and just spend the night there as a stopping point until we leave the next morning.
I realize that's a very general plan, but I left it vague so hopefully I can get some advice on what is realistic to do. I feel pretty good about 2 days in Dublin, and the Ballynahinch I definitely want to do - the Castle was once owned by a great great...(lots of great's!) grandfather, so it's a bucket list item for me! Is Cashel a must do? Have I left out anything that is on the way on this route that I should do? Completely open to suggestions, I'm learning from my research that there just isn't enought time to do everything. Should I remove one of the Dublin days to fit in other places? Thanks for any advice you can provide.
