I'm not sure if this question should go in Adare or Kilkenny.
On our arrival day into Dublin we plan to pick up our car and drive to Kilkenny for lunch and to take in some sights. Then we will continue on to our accommodations at Adare Manor. I realize this is a very optimistic plan considering we'll just be arriving from the US and tired...but we want to make the most of our drive to Adare.
That being said, can anyone comment on how long we should plan for the drive (Dublin to Kilkenny and then Kilkenny to Adare)and visit?
