Shannon Arrival - 5 day Itinerary

We had previously planned to arrive Shannon and Depart Dublin (previous post - Arrive Shannon/Depart Dublin 5 days/5 nights). Thank you, all, for the feedback to the post. Based on what you've shared with me and further research I think we've revised our itinerary ...
Day 1 - Cliffs of Moher (not sure where to stay and would appreciate any recommendations keeping in mind that we'll probably have some jet lag)
Day 2 - Drive to Dingle and overnight in Dingle
Day 3 - Drive/bike Dingle Peninsula and stay another night in Dingle
Day 4 - Visit Muckross House and overnight in Cobh
Day 5 - Visit Rock of Cashel and continue on to Bunratty - overnight in Bunratty.
Day 6 - Depart Shannon to London. After all the feedback it sounds like we may want to plan to visit Dublin on our next trip. Is this itinerary a little more realistic? Again, not sure where to stay our first night after visiting Cliffs of Moher so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I would suggest Moher Lodge, just five minutes from the Cliffs of Moher. Patty and Mary Considine are the hosts, and they are very happy to tell you about the Liscannor Stone, the slate from which all of the local farm fences are built. I think your revised itinerary will make you much happier in the end.

Sandy, we stayed at the Strand Guesthouse in Kilkee. It was right across from the bay, beautiful setting at sunset. We had dinner at the Stella Maris, right around the corner. It was a great experience.

Your trip sounds great! We did something similar 13 years ago. We spent a week in that area and 3 days in Dingle. The road trip around the Dingle Peninsula is very beautiful. The road in narrow and windy. We wanted to take the ferry trip over to the Blasket Island, but it was closed that day because of the winds... we did spend some time at the visitor center there.
I am glad you are spending the night in Cliffs of Moher area before driving to DIngle. We did not, and it was a mistake. We got off the plane and drove to our B&B in Dingle after landing and we were so tired on the drive after an all night flight. We went to Cliffs of Moher and Bunratty at the end of our stay. Your trip is better organized then ours was. Have fun!
