Worthwhile stops between Dingle and Dublin

We are driving from Dingle to Dublin airport in a few days. Are there any sites/towns you would recommend to stop on this route? How long should this drive take without stops?

I agree-Rock of Cashel is fab. Also, Glendalough was beautiful. You could always stop at Middleton and do the Jameson tour.

Are you hurrying or meandering Cindy?
The ruins of Bridgetown Priory on Blackwater are worth a bit of a look. We slept there in our van and had the place to ourselves. I love wandering about deserted ruins.
Rock of Cashel and neighbouring Hoare Abbey definately.
If you are doing it at leisure there is a long list of things but if you are in a hurry (what a shame) then stretch the legs at Bridgetown then a visit to Cashel.

Thank you all for your responses and suggestions. We had already been to the Rock of Cashel while driving from Kilkenny to Kinsale, and we did Glendalough as a side trip from Dublin. We ended up just driving straight to the airport in Dublin from Dingle to avoid paying for an additional car rental day.
