My husband and I are 60ish and in good health. We are planning a trip to Ireland in early May of 2019. We will have 12 days of tour time and 2 days of travel time. We will fly in and out of Dublin. We are unable to rent a car and drive so we will rely on trains/buses/drivers. We are considering 3 nights in each of the following: Dublin, Kilkenny, Killarney, and Galway. Things we would really like to see/do: Trinity College, Rock of Cashel, Limerick, Adare, Bunratty Castle, Powerscourt Estate,Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry. I have spent countless hours learning and reading and am now ready to get opinions. Please share your thoughts on: this itinerary, where to stay in each town (moderate budget), and transportation suggestions. Regarding transportation, we really don't care to travel with big groups but a private driver seems out of our budget. Should we plan a day trip from each of our 4 home bases and then spend the remaining days exploring the home base towns? Should we take a train between our 4 home bases? Thank you in advance for your advice.
