I've come up with the following itinerary for a September trip to Ireland. It's my 1st trip and the 2nd for my father. Is this too aggressive?
DAY 1-4: Dublin (Tourism and Family History Research)
DAY 5: Collect Car @ Airport; Glendalough (Glendalough, Co. Wicklow); National Stud (Kildare Town, Co. Kildare)
DAY 6: Co. Carlow (Possible family links)
DAY 7: Dunbrody Famine Ship (New Ross, Co. Wexford); Irish National Heritage Park (Wexford, Co. Wexford)
DAY 8: Kilkenny Castle (Kilkenny, Co. Kilkenny); Rock of Cashel (Cashel, Co. Tipperary)
DAY 9: Old Midleton Distillery (Midleton, Co. Cork); Queenstown Story at Cobh Heritage Center (Cobh, Co. Cork); Charles Fort (Kinsale, Co. Cork); Don Herlihy’s Historic Town Walk (Kinsale, Co. Cork)
DAY 10: Kerry the Kingdom (Tralee, Co. Kerry); Bunratty Castle and Folk Park (Shannon, Co. Limerick)
DAY 11: The Burren (Kilfenore, Co. Clare); Cliffs of Moher (Liscannor, Co. Clare); Ferry from Rossaveel to Aran Islands
DAY 12: Aran Islands
DAY 13: Ireland’s First School of Falconry (Cong, Co. Mayo)
DAY 14: Giant’s Causeway (Co. Antrim); Old Bushmills Distillery (Bushmills, Co. Antrim); Dunluce Castle (Portrush, Co. Antrim)
DAY 15: Bru na Boinne [Newgrange] (Donore, Co. Meath); Trim Castle (Trim, Co. Meath)
DAY 16: Return Car @ Dublin Airport; Fly Home
Would it be better to stay in the area we just visited or the one we are going to visit the next day? I'll be doing the driving and would prefer to be off the roads by nightfall.
