Help with itinerary

We are planning our first trip to Ireland arriving on Sept 8th three are 5 adults no children. I have been reading a lot on TA here is our tentative itinerary. We are very excited to visit Ireland and have heard so many positive points.

We are looking for any guidance you can offer. We plan on flying in and out of Shannon, and picking up a rental car there. Three of us plan on staying for 12-14 nights and 1 couple will be staying around 7-8 nights.

We were thinking of having a base in a few towns and taking some side trips. This is a tentative itinerary I came up with. Arrive Shannon in the morning, visit Bunratty along with castle and spend 1 night in Adare, drive to Killarney spend 3 nights. Take side trips each day to Mizen head and Beara Peninsula another day to Dingle Peninsula. We may not visit Ring of Kerry this trip if time is limited.

Possible spend 1 night on the Dingle Peninsula. Drive to Doolin for 2 night stay visiting the Cliffs of Moher and possibly the Aran Islands. Drive to Ennis stay 1 night and drop the couple off at Shannon airport. Or is there a bus from Doolim to the aiport? Then 3 of us would drive to Galway for 2 nights and Connemara for 2 nights. Drive closer to Shannon airport and stay in Ennis 1 night and fly out the next day.

Any suggestions or help with this itinerary would be greatly appreciated!
