How much Ireland in 11 days?

My wife and I are trying to figure out a rough itinerary for 11 full days in Ireland. Is Clare, Dingle, Kerry, and Dublin too much for 11 days? We fly into Belfast and out of Dublin (due to a large difference in price at the time) so depending on if we take the first day for Giants Causeway it could be 10 days...may just train it straight down to Dublin and split our time in Dublin between start and end.

I'm thinking of dropping Ring of Kerry out of the places listed above. Am I crazy?

Thanks for the help on the previous post.

We toured the southern half of Ireland, with a rental car, in 11 days last fall. Started in Dublin around noon, headed south; Powerscourt, Glendaloch, and spent the night in Avoca. (2) Avoca Hand Weavers, New Ross Famine Ship, and Waterford Crystal, overnight in Dungarvin. (3&4) toured the Kinsale/Cobh area. (5) Kenmare, and Ring of Kerry. (6&7) Dingle area. (8&9) Burren, Cliffs of Mohr, stayed in Doolin. (10) 4-5 hour trip accross Ireland, from the west coast to Trim. (11) Newgrange, ending in Swords overnight. Flew out of Dublin early the next morning. We want to do a similar trip sometime in the future touring the northern half of Ireland and take 2 weeks and maybe a side trip into Scotland for 3 days.
