Is this doable in a day?

Doing some pre-planning...we are leaving Galway and driving to Dingle. I want to make a stop at the Cliffs of Moher. I also would like to stop at Bunratty Castle. I've been looking at Google maps for driving time estimates, but I realize they may not be accurate. There are seven of us traveling in two cars, so that slows things down a bit as well. I'd also love to be able to arrive in Dingle by way of the Conner Pass, but will it be too late in the day? I certainly don't want to make that drive in the dark! Any suggestions on how to pace the day? And if this is too much to cover in one day, I'm open to ideas on what to ditch. Thanks in advance!

Galway to Dingle with an hour at Moher and 2 at Bunratty is easily achievable. I personally think there is a whole lot more to Clare than a 1/2 mile section of Cliffs designated for tourists, The Cliffs and Burren Geo Park covers twice the area of the whole Dingle peninsula but if all people want is a bit of Cliff and a moonscape its their vacation.

Leave Galway head to Ballyvaughan, take a right and follow the coast round Blackhead past Fanore and you have the coast on one side the Moonscape on the other. You arrive in Doolin at Fisher St Then up and visit the Cliffs. From the Cliffs to Bunratty and then on to Dingle over the Connor.

Remember to pre purchase the entry tickets to save some € https:/…
