Day 1: Depart the United States and relax on an overnight flight to Dublin.  Ireland is five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and most flights from New York to Dublin are approximately 7-8 hours long so you’ll want to sleep on your flight and arrive in Dublin ready to explore! 
Day 2: Arrive in the vibrant capital city of Dublin!  You will pick up your rental car at the airport and take off to your first destination; any Irish Bed & Breakfast of your choice!  Keep in mind that you will be driving on the opposite side of the road so proceed with caution!  You will be able to travel at your own pace and you will be free to pull over where ever you’d like for photo opportunities or take any detours you want.
Days 3-6: The next four nights of your vacation will be spent at the Irish Bed & Breakfast of your choice!  Choose from hundreds of properties throughout Ireland.  It is highly recommended to book your stay prior to your departure date to ensure you have accommodations at your first choice Bed & Breakfast.  Some popular destinations along the west coast include Clare, Galway and Dingle.  Galway is an interesting city because it has a spirited atmosphere with a bustling city, but is also home to Connemara Park, one of the most scenic parks in Ireland.  You have the opportunity with your rental car to travel further south to Killarney if you wish.  Killarney is a beautiful city where you can find the Ring of Kerry trail, Killarney National Park and more popular attractions.
Day 7: Your last night will be at the fantastic 5-star Dromoland Castle in Clare.  Clare is a beautiful area and is in a prime location for exploring the Cliffs of Moher.  Take the short drive over to Limerick which is only 19 miles away or Galway which is approximately 50 miles away.  Galway is an extremely interesting city and is home to the stunning St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church and the Galway Cathedral.
