We are planning a trip in June 2024, potentially a round trip landing in Rosslare from Pembroke.
We were thinking staying in Waterford, then Cork (to stay) to visit Spike Island, Ballycotton Cliff Walks and throw in a whale/dolphin tour. Then onto Killarney (to stay) to try and pick up Mizen Head and Dursley Island/Garnish Head. Hopefully up to Galway to stay then onto Dublin or if not enough time, back to Rosslare. 

Is this achievable and how much time should we allow in each location?

Hi Gary,

It's great to hear that you're planning a trip to Ireland and, by the looks of it, have an excellent itinerary in mind.

Landing in Rosslare is certainly very convenient if you are planning to explore the southern counties such as Waterford, Cork, and Kerry, before moving up to Galway and then over to Dublin.

Such a trip is very much achievable and can be done in a timeframe ranging from a few days to a few weeks or more, depending on how long you plan to spend in Ireland. Because Ireland is small, it's easy to get from one place to another. For example, driving the length of County Waterford takes only around 1 hour 30 minutes.

Are you planning to rent a car or use public transport for this trip? Both are great options, though by renting a car you will have more flexibility and can travel at your own pace. How much time you wish to spend in each location is up to you, but perhaps the larger cities such as Dublin and Cork may take up more of your time, given there is so much to see and do.

Generally speaking, I would say that a week is a good length of time to set aside for such a trip. This way, you can see lots of different sights without feeling rushed, though, as I said, a shorter or longer trip still makes sense, too.

Regards,
Eoin
