Mary Gibbons Newgrange & Tara tour (8am – 2pm): http://newgrangetours.com/
Includes Optional: Guided walk, Horse Riding or Cycling instead of Powerscourt Gardens
Enniskerry (film location of “P.S. I Love You” and “Leap Year”)
Wicklow Mountain National Park
Lough Tay, the Guinness Lake (film location of “Excalibur” and “Brave Heart”)
2 hrs 30 min train ride. I would not plan a scheduled tour this day since this could be complicated. But you could take a taxi (30 min – 17 miles) or bus (1 hr) to Kinsale.
Rock of Cashel day tour includes Kilkenny (2 hr stop -St Canice’s Round Tower and Cathedral, Kyteler’s Inn)
Cobh Heritage Centre and Titanic Exhibit
5 hours – return to Cork city center at around 17:30
Train to Killarney ( less than 2 hours) and walking around seeing sites of Killarney.
Drive along the famed Ring of Kerry and see the Skellig Experience Visitors Centre to learn about the wonders of the Skellig Islands. http://www.classicirelandguidedtours.com/
A day trip to the Dingle Peninsula to see the rugged Blasket Islands and the ancient Fahan Beehive Huts on Slea Head. The return to Killarney includes a visit to the historic South Pole Inn – a pub opened in 1927 by Kerryman and unsung Antarctic Explorer hero Tom Crean – ending with a visit to the splendid Inch Beach.
Train to Galway (6 hours with 1 change, 4 – 5 hours with 2 or 3 changes) and walking around seeing sites of Galway. (The train also stops in Ennis – although getting from Ennis to Doolin would have to be figured out.)
Galway Tour Company would probably drop you in Doolin and pick you up there the next day (noonish). You would be able to see the Cliffs of Moher – I believe on the return. (I have used them before to pick someone up in Doolin who was arriving into Shannon, then had a private taxi to Doolin.)
Departure from Doolin Pier at 10:00 OR 13.00 DAILY
Leave Inis Mor the next day at 11.30 OR 16:00
Overnight: Inishmore, then Galway
Train from Galway back to Dublin. See sites missed in the first 2 days.
