Itinerary help

have 5 days and want to see Blarney Castle, Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of Moher and Kilkenny. Flying into Dublin, but do not want to stay in Dublin, but want to see some of Dublin on the first day. Looking for at least 2 base locations to see most of the area. Any recommendations?

I would advise you to look at a map of Ireland. Assuming you are hiring a car you would not have very much time in any of your desired locations. You would travel from Dublin to Kilkenny, down to Blarney in Co. Cork, on to Kerry and then up to Clare for the cliffs of Moher. A lot to see and do in five days. Happy travelling.

i agree with skoda, too much for only 5 days and one of those days being arrival date....just be careful with driving that day as jet lag can and probably will zap you when you least expect it....

depending on your route, you might see blarney in route to killarney but there really isn't any area you could stay and see even two places from the same location other than that....also, keep in mind you will need virtually a full day for seeing the ring of kerry.....

Thanks for both comments. Just changed our return for Shannon so we will do 1 night Dublin, 1 night Kilkenny, 2 nights Killarney and then 1 night around Shannon. Should be fun, but a lot of driving.
