We are going to Ireland for two weeks in July. Flying into Shannon, out of Dublin. Guys are playing some golf and would like some feedback on the 'plan'. What would you change:
Day 1: Arrive Shannon. Drive to Killarney. Staying at the Killarney Towers for 1 week. This is the base of the trip. After we arrive, just get our feet on the ground, check in, go to Killarney Nat'l Park.
Day 2: Muckross House and Gardens, Abbey, maybe Ross Castle?
Day 3: Guys play golf at Ballybunion (both courses). Girls...any ideas? We will have a car!
Day 4: Ring of Kerry. Should we drive it backwards? I read that is a good way to avoid tours.
Day 5: Guys play Tralee and then all visit Muckross Traditional Farms
Day 6: Rock of Cashel, Cork attractions. What should we see there? I know about Blarney but that doesn't sound like a 'must see'.
Day 7: Guys play Tralee again (Free w/in a week?) Can we also do the Gap of Dunloe this day?
Day 8: Leave Killarney. Skellig Michael. Which is the best tour? Should we stay in Doolin? Know anything about the Briar Lodge?
Day 9: Lahinch. Cliffs of Moher, Burren? Can this all be done in 1 day?
Day 10: Aran Islands. What is the best to do here?
Day 11: Head to Dublin. Stop and see sights on way. Any suggestions? Staying at Kilronan House?
Day 12: Newgrange/Knowth tour
Day 13, 14: HOHO bus, Trinity College and Book of Kells, other sights. Guys might play Portmarnock if time
Day 15: Back to OK!
