Hi everyone! I need some help finalizing my itinerary for a 9 day trip to Ireland, particularly the middle part. The challenge: my husband doesn't want to drive, so we're relying on public transportation. We're in our 30s, love history, music, food. If we had more time, I'd like to see more of Galway, but we live in a major city, so I'm prioritizing countryside on this trip.
Do you think this set up is possible/best use of our time? We leave next week.
Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Day 1: Flight arrives in Dublin in the afternoon. Walk around a bit, dinner
Day 2: Walking tour of Dublin, sightseeing, musical pub crawl
Day 3: Bus tour to Newgrange/Tara; early evening train to Tralee and then (cab?) to Dingle. (Can you reserve a cab at 11pm?) Overnight there.
Day 4: sign up for a tour of the area, spend the night
Day 5: Cab back to Tralee (is there a better way?), bus to Doolin, visit Cliffs of Moher/Burren, stay in Doolin
Day 6: Ferry to Aran Islands, stay overnight in Inishmore
Day 7: early ferry to Rossaveel, cab to Ashford
Day 8: cab to Galway, quick tour of the city, then on the train back to Dublin.
Day 9 Early flight home
Thanks for your help!
