What route would you take from Dublin to Killarney?

We'll be leaving Dublin on the morning of Jan. 30 headed to Killarney where we have a hotel for two nights. Would someone be so kind as to give us their opinion as to what route to take and a few things to see along the way? We'll be in Killarney for three days so we will be able to explore the sites in that area during that time. We'd just like to know what you would recommend on the drive from Dublin to Killarney. thank you.

I recommend that you take the M8 motorway from Dublin towards cork, on the way take a side trip off for Cashel (very well signposted) and visit the rock of Castle. This will add at least two hours to the trip.

Once on the outskirts of Cork city you will reach the Jack Lynch Tunnel, go through the tunnel and head for South Link West which is the route to Killarney. It's an easy route all the way to Killarney.

The journey from Dublin to Cork (excluding stops and side trips) will take you about 3 hours while the onward journey to Killarney will take a further 90 minutes.
