Galway to Killarney

How long does it take to drive from Galway to Killarney? We want to view Cliffs of Moher and take ferry across Shannon River. WOnder if we will have time to see Dingle at all. We will only have 2 nights in Killarney. First trip to area, going with our two young boys. It's hard to plan itinerary.

brocha, I also answered on your other post. If you want to see the Cliffs of Moher on your way from Galway to Killarney you will definitely not have time to see Dingle as well.

I think you should plan for almost a day's journey to Killarney, quite simply because you will want to take your time at the Cliffs and since you have your two young boys with you you might want to stop more often.

Clauds- Thanks, you sure are informed about the area...I really appreciate your insight. We will just have to go back to see Dingle. It's so hard to judge from maps.

I don't think you should go the Dingle, but I would recommend stopping in the Burren to explore the Ailwee Caves, which the boys would really enjoy. The Cliffs of Moher will only take may 46 min to an hour to see then off to the Ferry crossing and down to Killarney. It will be a long day but with stops you will be able to do it, I have.
