Ireland in Four Days

Help! I've only got four days in Ireland this July and need advice on what I should do. I do have a rental car and am going to be arriving in Larne, Northern Ireland and then departing by ferry on the morning of the fifth day from Dublin. I've read so much stuff and want to do everything but with only four days I must limit myself. Recommendations please!

You have to at least meet us halfway, Christopher. Can you give us some idea of what you are interested in? How do you plan to get around?

I have a rental car that I will be driving. I'm mostly interested in seeing scenery and/or historical things. Just some thoughts as to what one can do in four days with a car in Ireland.

Given your arrival location and travel distances might I suggest this itinerary: Giants Causeway, Belfast, Newgrange and The Hill of Tara, Carlingford, Dublin, Book of Kells, Glendalough, Sally Gap, Kilkenny Castle, Rock of Cashel, Dingle Peninsula, Galway, then back to Dublin. Merely a route that meets your criteria.
Easy to refine. Lovely island. Enjoy your four days.
