RE: Waterford to Dublin-what sites to see in 1 day?

On one of our vacation days, we are traveling from Tralee to Waterford and wondered if we could do Blarney Castle, Rock of Cashel to Waterford in 1 day? Also, we are 2 couples traveling from Waterford to Dublin-should we do Rock of Cashel route to Glenalough and through Wickow Mountains or shouldl we do Wexford and up along the ocean? What is more interesting?

@ Waterford to Dublin - the coastal route is lovely, low-key, back-roady - those who love Southeast Ireland could spend a couple days wandering it. I don't think you have the time, so would recommend going from Waterford to Glendalough monastic site & its surrounding Wicklow mtns., to Dublin.

I wouldn't include Cashel on this route, it is way too far west.

Presuming you will have a car firstly,what time of the year ?

The road over the mountains to Glendalough is certainly scenic,but unless you have the time to savour it, I suggest that you go Tralee- Cork-Blarney-Waterford and on to Dublin.

The spectacular Gougane Barra is on your route from Tralee to Cork, it is also an early monastic site, has a lake an wonderful scenery and won't havehttp://www.gouganebarra.com/ crowds or tour buses.

A good lunchstop-and another monastic site, with a round tower and early religious carvings would be Ardmore,between Youghal and Dungarvan .It is also home to the Cliffhouse hotel that is worth seeing, does great barfood which, depending on the weather you could take on the terrace overlooking the bay.
