I'd love to see what I can do to help plan your trip! Are you planning on visiting in the near future?
It seems like you've definitely got your mind set on exploring as much of the west coast as possible. :) Since you aren't going to be staying in Dublin very long, you could choose to stay in or near the city and drive to the west in the morning. There is a great road
between Dublin and Galway, that allows you to drive to the other side of the island in 2 to 2,5 hours.
I can completely understand you will want to rest after a long day of driving, but you could also drive from Dublin towards Galway on the first day, and stay somewhere along the coast so you can start your trip along the Wild Atlantic Way
straight away in the morning.
Have you looked at accommodation yet? Type in the location of the place where you would like to stay on this page
, and all of the available options will pop up.
The drive from Galway to County Kerry will take, depending on the route
, between 2 hours and 45 minutes, and 3 hours and 30 minutes. This is without stopping along the way. What would you like to see in between, and how far along the coast would you like to continue your trip?
