Where to stop between Killarney and Kilkenny

We will be in Ireland in late March and will start in the west and move eastward. Night 3 is in Kenmare and the next day is the Ring of Kerry. Night 5 will be in Kilkenny. If we get an early start from Kenmare, it seems like we could continue on towards Kilkenny and stop for Night 4 somewhere in between. Any suggestions? I would love to go from Kerry to Kinsale and then on to Kilkenny, but this seems like way too much driving for enjoyment. Thanks for your help.

there's a lot of driving in your plans. I think you're right - trying to get to Kinsale would perhaps be a drive too far, with little time to actually see anything, If driving from Killarney to Kilkenny, consider stopping at Mitchelstown (for the caves nearby), or Cahir (for the well-reserved and historic castle). Cashel is also not far off the direct route...
