We have had a look at your itinerary and we think that you have realised how many wonderful things there are to see and do on the island of Ireland!
On your drive up from Dublin, a visit to Belfast Castle before seeing the sights of Belfast City
would be a super idea.
Day two, Carrick-a-Rede
rope bridge, the Giant's Causeway, driving on towards Dunluce Castle and Mussenden Temple would give some wonderful views of the Causeway Coastline before heading into Derry~Londonderry
for a walk around the walls before finishing in Letterkenny for the evening. The Gobbins
is a super place to visit but we usually say allow at least 3 hours for the time there. If you intend on staying in the area for a few days, this would be perfect along with the other ideas you have.
Day three, Glenveagh National Park
, Slieve League
, Donegal Town would be high on the list before driving on to Sligo and passing Ben Bulben, visiting Sligo Abbey
ending the day at Castlebar.
Day four looks wonderful, Kylemore Abbey
, Connemara National Park
, Cong if you like the film Quiet Man, afternoon tea at Ashford Castle
would be delightful too before the evening in Galway city with all of its many places to visit.
Day five, Dunguaire Castle
and the Cliffs of Moher
are definitely places to spend your time, maybe the Medieval Banquet
at Bunratty Castle if you fancy a wonderful evening experience.
Day six, the whole of the Killarney National Park
is a great place to visit, Ross Castle, Muckross House, Torc waterfall perfect choices before making your way to Cork for the night.
Day seven, a lovely coastal drive up to Waterford
followed by a drive through the Wicklow Mountains National Park
before ending up back in Dublin is perfect.
If you start with these as a basis for your days and just see what fits in as you travel, your experience with us will be full of adventure leaving you with a sense of the island of Ireland and all there is to see and do during a visit.
