Galway itinerary

We need some help with a doable itinerary. Of course, we have limited time and want to do/see a lot! We are planning on driving from Dingle to Galway and seeing Cliffs of Moher on the way. We would like to drive through the Burren if possible, but is it worth going out of the way? How much time is reasonable for Cliffs of Moher?

Also, we will spend 2 nights in Galway- we are trying to decide between Aran Islands or Connemara for our one full day in Galway. We figure we can see the town, hang out in pubs in the evenings. Any info/direction would be greatly appreciated! Also, if you have specific tour companies to recommend, please do=)

I would imagine that your rental car WILL have a CD player as they usually do in our experience but it might be worthwhile checking with Thrifty in advance? Keeping a local (or national) radio station tuned in whilst driving around Ireland can sometimes be quite tricky when you're away from the cities but RTÉ's Raidió na Gaeltachta, a national Irish language radio station on 92-94 FM, is actually based in Connemara so you tend to get a decent reception of that one at least. For really local stuff (literally who's died, who's had a new garage built, etc) check out Connemara Community Radio on 87.8 FM

It should have a cd player id guess, most VW's of a good age do.

thanks so much! Me being the cheap one, could we easily explore Connemara on our own since we will have the rental car (which is UNBELIEVABLY expensive) or would a guided tour be our best bet?

Tour bus's will take you where everyone goes. Driving yourself you have a weeks worth of options
